WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels made an appearance on the State Of Combat Podcast to discuss his involvement in Dolph Ziggler’s feud with Goldberg. This program ended in a match between Ziggler and Goldberg at the SummerSlam pay-per-view event last month.
In the build-up to the program, WWE teased a feud between Ziggler and Michaels.
In this interview, the legendary pro wrestler talked about how there were no plans of him facing Ziggler despite them getting physical on television.
“I never know when the phone call is going to come and I’m going to jump on a plane,” Shawn explained. “I was just sort of doing what I was asked to do. If nothing else, with all these years later, after 30 years, I’m a pretty good employee. I just do what I am told, so to speak. It was fun to do but there was absolutely no thought of me and Dolph or anything like that. It was always going to be Bill Goldberg, but perhaps they needed somebody to light the fuse for Dolph Ziggler in that respect and I was the guy to do it as best as I could.”
