As we reported Tuesday, Brad Maddox was expected to be the one blamed for the bad "Highlight Reel" segment on Raw Monday. F4W Online is claiming that is indeed the case and Vince is pointing the ultimate finger at Maddox.
That segment was reportedly rewritten on the day of the show due to Vince thinking it was "really bad" in the first place. Then, the TV used for the Jeritron messed up while "The Marine 3" promo was airing, so the ring crew had to remove it. That's when Jericho adlibbed and mentioned his Jeritron magically disappearing.
Maddox's promo was supposed to mention the Jeritron, so it not being there is what supposedly caused him to flub his lines when he came out.
Although Brad Maddox is the one taking the fall for the segment, it should be noted that McMahon had already told Cole and Lawler through their headsets to bury the segment before Maddox even came out.
Backstage, Vince was heard calling it one of the worst segments ever, but many believed it wouldn't have been near as noticable if Cole and Lawler weren't told to bury it on the air.
