The Summerslam card continues to fill out. Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio (h/t Wrestlinginc) mentioned two matches that WWE is yet to announce. Dolph Ziggler will take on Goldberg, and Daniel Bryan will take on Roman Reigns.

Ziggler has a match already announced against The Miz. That match will reportedly be changed to be against the WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg.
