Former World Champ Wanted To Leave WWE Before Wrestling Goldberg
WWE brought back Goldberg to in-ring action, earlier this year for the first Saudi Arabia pay-per-view event of the year named Super ShowDown. He competed in a dream match against The Undertaker that never happened during their prime. The company thought fans would be happy to see the two legends facing off each other in a match.
The match turned out to be a complete disaster that demolished the strong status of Goldberg. This is why the company had to book him in another encounter within just two months.
The former WCW franchise was back to compete in a match against Dolph Ziggler at Summerslam. He picked up a dominant win over the show-off in a match that barely lasted for a couple of minutes.
The booking of the match for Goldberg is quite understandable as the creative team wanted him to give him back the beast mode that he portrayed throughout his career.
But Dolph Ziggler obviously did not like the idea of getting squashed by The Myth. He digested a couple of spears and a Jackhammer to suffer the pinfall loss against him. He did not expect the match to go down like this and even threatened to quit the company.
While appearing in an interview with Talk Sport, Dolph Ziggler revealed his feeling around this Summerslam match against Goldberg, (courtesy ringsidenews.com)
“As a kid [I was a fan] but as a grown up I see these guys and I’m like, ‘Okay I’m here to do business and do special things — I try not to be the fan. I find out what the business is and I’m like ‘Cool this is the moment.’ And having that like ‘You’re the guy to do this. To set the record straight and give this guy this fantastic match. I’m like, ‘Fantastic.’”
“Then they go, ‘it’s gonna be bell spear’ and I go ‘Come on.’ So I fought all day long, threatened to leave, threatened to leave. Do anything I can do — ‘Give me two damn minutes!’ And I got a minute, whatever, what are you gonna do?”
There have been a lot of talks over the years that WWE has never booked Dolph Ziggler that could match up to his true potential. Sure, he has been a former Money in the Bank winner and a world champion.
But most of the times, the company used him as a jobber who put over younger talents. The tradition remained the same while facing a legend like Goldberg, too. So we can never really blame Ziggler for having frustrations with the way how the SummerSlam match ended up happening.
