July was a key month for WWE, as several major events took place. Extreme Rules was held that month and was a brilliant pay-per-view. Moreover, some titles also changed hands last month.
The company has certainly improved the product, and it was visible over the course of last month. While the rise of AEW probably forced WWE to step up their game, the substandard ratings also played a big role. Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff, the new Executive Directors of RAW and SmackDown Live respectively, were appointed to those roles last month. The RAW Reunion episode, certainly one of the biggest episodes of the year, took place in July, as well.
The expectations, then, will be sky-high in August. SummerSlam is the second biggest pay-per-view after WrestleMania and it will take place in less than two weeks. WWE has hyped the show with several gigantic matches. The Red Brand and the Blue Brand will be aiming to continue the momentum this month.
Here we discuss four things WWE could be planning in August.
#4 Goldberg faces Dolph Ziggler
Dolph Ziggler has garnered the attention of the WWE Universe in recent weeks. The Show-off had a disastrous match at Extreme Rules where Kevin Owens pinned him in seventeen seconds. Ziggler appeared on The Miz TV and started a new feud with the A-Lister. The match was confirmed on SmackDown Live this week and the two men are set to collide at SummerSlam.
Though the match between The Miz and Ziggler was confirmed this week, we might see a twist. It is no secret that Ziggler has been taking shots at Goldberg every week. As a matter of fact, Ziggler continued it this week.
A new report suggests that Goldberg could face Dolph Ziggler at the Biggest Party of the Summer. Following a dismal performance at Super ShowDown, the former Universal Champion will be aiming to prove his doubters wrong. Considering Ziggler is an exceptional performer, he could deliver a great match against Goldberg at SummerSlam.
