Update --

Dave Meltzer reports that -- despite being announced for SummerSlam -- The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler is a red herring and will be changed.

Original --

Ahead of tonight's SmackDown, WWE has added another match to the card for SummerSlam.

The Miz will take on Dolph Ziggler at the pay-per-view. It's taking place at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on August 11.

On last week's SmackDown, there was a segment where Ziggler interrupted Shawn Michaels' appearance on Miz TV. Ziggler went to hit Michaels but accidentally struck Miz. Ziggler then laid out Michaels with a superkick.

Miz and Ziggler's current program began when Ziggler appeared on Miz TV earlier this month and accused Miz of selling out. Ziggler insulted Maryse, which led to Miz attacking him before Ziggler bailed out of the ring.

Here's the updated card for SummerSlam:

  • Universal Champion Brock Lesnar defending against Seth Rollins
  • Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch defending against Natalya
  • WWE Champion Kofi Kingston defending against Randy Orton
  • SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley defending against Ember Moon
  • Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon (Owens will "quit WWE" if he loses)
  • "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt vs. Finn Balor
  • United States Champion AJ Styles defending against Ricochet
  • The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler
