*Dolph Ziggler video package…he’s the champ, he’s got all the media responsibilities…he’s admittedly bitter over all the advantages NXT guys have now…all Dolph wants is to send everyone home from Stand & Deliver shocked when he retains.

*Carmelo Hayes (& Trick Williams) backstage with McKenzie…Grayson Waller interrupts…remember what he did inside the cage?…imagine what he’ll do to go viral in the ladder match.
