In the final segment of Raw on Monday, it was revealed that Bill Goldberg will face Dolph Ziggler this Sunday at SummerSlam in Toronto, Ontario.

During a segment where Ziggler signed a contract to face The Miz, it was clarified that he signed to face Goldberg and will face The Miz on next Monday’s Raw. Goldberg proceeded to walk out and sign the contract in his first appearance since the Super Showdown card this past June in Saudi Arabia.

It was reported by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter last week that Goldberg would be Ziggler’s opponent despite WWE advertising a match between Ziggler and The Miz.

Goldberg wrestled The Undertaker at the Super Showdown but suffered a concussion in the early stages of the match, which fell apart and was not well-received.

This is only the second time Goldberg has wrestled at SummerSlam and the first since 2003 when he was part of an Elimination Chamber match that year in Phoenix, Arizona.

Below is the updated card for SummerSlam, which will start at 5 pm Eastern with the kickoff show:
*Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins for the Universal title
*Kofi Kingston vs. Randy Orton for the WWE title
*Becky Lynch vs. Natalya in a Submission match for the Raw women’s title
*Bayley vs. Ember Moon for the SmackDown women’s title
*Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon
*AJ Styles vs. Ricochet for the United States title
*Bray Wyatt vs. Finn Balor
*Charlotte Flair vs. Trish Stratus
*Aleister Black vs. Sami Zayn
*Dolph Ziggler vs. Bill Goldberg
