Roman Reigns vs. Dolph Ziggler set for FOX's New Year's Eve special


A match between Roman Reigns and Dolph Ziggler has been made for FOX’s New Year’s Eve show next Tuesday.

WWE made the announcement tonight during SmackDown. They had previously announced that Roman Reigns would be in a match that would air during the special, but his opponent had yet to be named.

Ziggler has associated himself with King Corbin in recent weeks and has helped him beat down Roman Reigns in previous encounters. He helped Corbin pour dog food all over Roman Reigns during an episode of SmackDown three weeks ago.

FOX’s New Year’s Eve special will start at 8 p.m. ET. Steve Harvey will be hosting the show along with Maria Menounos and Rob Gronkowski, both who have been on WWE television in the past. The special will feature a number of celebrity guests, as well as performances from the likes of The Backstreet Boys and The Village People.
