8Goldberg Squashed Ziggler
Goldberg battled Dolph Ziggler in the second match of SummerSlam. Matt Riddle was on WWE Watch Along during the match and poked fun at Goldberg throughout his entrance and the match. Riddle has very publicly criticized Goldberg on social media in the past few weeks.
Ziggler hit Goldberg with a Superkick for a two count to start off the match. Goldberg hit a massive Spear and then the Jackhammer for the pinfall victory. After the match, Dolph Ziggler called Goldberg a baby and told him to come back to the ring and fight him like a man. Goldberg came back down to the ring and hit another Spear.
Dolph once again mocked Goldberg and called him a laughing stock. Goldberg came back down to the ring again and hit a third Spear to mercifully end the segment.
This was a fun segment to those that really love Goldberg’s entrance and just want to watch him walk up and down an entrance ramp several times. If you love actual wrestling, this wasn’t the segment for you. A single Spear and Jackhammer would have sufficed.
