It's reverse psychology, they keep telling you he's going to cash in, hoping you come to the conclusion that you have done. When Big Show knocks Sheamus out, and Ziggler's music hits just like he promised, they want people to think exactly what you're thinking "Oh, they've made it SO OBVIOUS, something is gonna go wrong" So that when he actually pins him and wins the Title, it'll be an even bigger surprise than if he does the routine cash in out of the blue like everyone has done before him.
Plus, doing it this way can give Ziggler complete smug heel promo material "I told the world where and when I was gonna cash in, and I did, because I'm so damn great" etc etc.
Trust me, he'll win the Title on Sunday. I'm absolutely convinced he'll get the belt at Hell in a Cell, and then lose it either at the Rumble, or Elimination Chamber. There is no chance in hell, prime time 'jobber to the stars' Dolph Ziggler walks into Wrestlemania as Champion.
