I guess that makes sense. Every now and then you get some weird pairings in wrestling. The story might not make sense and the match might not sound like it will be any good but that is what you get. You never know what you might get as a final product and that can make for some interesting results. That was the case earlier this year and now we have an explanation.
Goldberg was recently interviewed by the Metro (United Kingdom) and talked about why he faced Dolph Ziggler at this year’s Summerslam. The match was designed to help make up for Goldberg’s poorly received match against Undertaker earlier in the year at Super ShowDown. Goldberg blamed his performance in the Undertaker match with being knocked out by a missed spear, which resulted in various botches in the second half of the match. There is no word on when Goldberg will wrestle again.
This worked a bit better. Check out Ziggler vs. Goldberg:
Opinion: This is a theory that has been floating around since the match was announced and there is nothing wrong with that. The Undertaker match was indeed a rough sit but given what happened to Goldberg during the match, it wasn’t exactly something that can be fairly blamed on the wrestlers. The match with Ziggler wasn’t great, but it was respectable enough and that is all it needed to be.
