Last night's edition of the Highlight Reel on RAW did not go well and WWE let the fans at home know it as Michel Cole and Jerry Lawler buried the segment. On air, Cole and Lawler were heard laughing, stating how bad the segment was and asking when it would end so they could go to commercial.

This was a case of Vince McMahon telling Cole and Lawler what to say through the headsets. When segments fall flat on TV and the audience doesn't respond, Vince has been known to bury the segment and those involved on air. Ths happened several months ago with a "Piper's Pit' segment.

Word is that Brad Maddox is the one that will most likely take the majority of the heat, as it was his part of the segment that most felt got awkward and embarrassing. Despite that, Triple H is very high on Maddox and he's the main reason he's featured on TV right now.

I throughougly enjoyed it tbh, it was fun to watch and had some nice jokes in it. The commentary just made me laugh even harder.

I didn't find really anything wrong with the whole thing, I found commentary's burial of it needless. I've never understood the way WWE buries parts of their own show, considering it just makes them seem stupid in the end.

The problem with this whole segments not getting a reaction i find is that alot of the time live crowds cant be bothered with segments unless it's one of the main guys involved them seem to just want wrestling they dont care generally them WWE should be trawling the boards & forums if they want to really see the reaction to there tv rather than basing it off live audiences

^ Exactly. If you can't go on the mic like Rock or Punk, just keep it brief and straight to the point.

Well, burying your talent is a sure way to produce stars for the future.. Not. Legit, the WWE buried Chris Jericho ultimately. It was his show.

Maddox did make that shit weird though. It was as if he forgot his lines, or knew them, but wasn't sure if they were correct or just forgot what he was going to say all together and tried to wing it.

It could be Brad Maddox's way of cutting a promo. A slow, calm talking general manager would be nice. Brad Maddox & Vickie Guerrero bring contrasting styles. Vickie is a loose cannon, while Brad Maddox is clam and calculating.

Yea, it was pretty lame, honestly. But at the same time pretty funny, it clearly showed, whether intentionally or not, how nervious he was. If anyone should be given a nervous/studdering/unsure of themselves, type of gimmick, it's definitely Maddox lol

I liked the segment. Shitting on it was a little unnecessary in my opinion. Maddox's part was a little bit weird and awkward, but I think it's kind of his thing. This time his promo did drag a little bit, but the segment as a whole was nowhere near as bad as they made it out to be.

I don't know what the problem is. Jericho/Miz joking on the lack of a set was funny, my wife Vickie's assistant Brad was hilarious. I think the wrestlers should bury the lack of skills cole and lawler have had for a decade

The only thing terrible about that segment was it being buried by the commentary team.

The whole point of the JeriTron was for the Shawn Michaels eye injury angle

Can't say for certain, but I'm pretty sure it was present way before that.

Is there a video of this I look on youtube with no luck. I was watching Raw but wasn't really paying attention till they starting saying lets have a commercial break in the middle of it. Then I looked up from my computer and thought that was odd.

But he had the JeriTron during the segment, then it just vanished, they even acknowledged it went. What was the purpose for that?
