Dolph tells Dean that after Summer Slam when he wins the title, he will have to admit how good he is. Dean says even if Dolph wins the belt it still will be a difficult ride because of the target on your back, and Dolph doesn’t like pressure. Dean says the chip that Ziggler has on his shoulder will be what costs him the match because he will get embarrassed and that Dolph will never get it.
