Dolph Ziggler wants match with Bad News Barrett at WWE SummerSlam 2014

In an interview with, Dolph Ziggler reveals he wants to work a match with Bad News Barrett at the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view (PPV) scheduled for Aug. 17, 2014, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

"I would like to face Bad News Barrett at SummerSlam. That guy, he's come back from an injury, he's come a long way. He's found a way to recreate himself on The JBL and Cole YouTube show and actually bringing that over to television. He brought it over to television and it's great. I love hearing him talk. He's good and he knows what he's doing. We've only been in the ring maybe two times together and we tore it down. I would love to get out there with him and put on a match that nobody else could follow."

Of late, Ziggler has been doing jobs as the "mid-card worker who gives great matches to whoever needs to be put over in a great match" and Barrett is the current Intercontinental champion who appears to be headed for a feud with Cesaro.

Still, Ziggler vs. Barrett would be a fairly fresh match-up and SummerSlam is a couple months away.
