Goldberg’s match against The Undertaker was quickly followed up by a match against Dolph Ziggler. Goldberg and Ziggler might like to do more business down the line, but Ziggler wasn’t too thrilled about losing in a minute at SummerSlam.

While speaking to Alex McCarthy of Talk Sport, Dolph Ziggler explained some of the struggles he had backstage with his Goldberg match. He wanted them to give him something more to work with, but WWE only wanted him to have a minute in the ring with Goldberg.

“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?”

Goldberg’s match against Dolph Ziggler did prove that he’s still the beast that we knew him as. The Undertaker match seems to be largely forgotten although there is a portion of the fan base that will never truly forget that Saudi Arabia match.
