WWE: Backstage news on comedy segment cut from No Mercy PPV

At No Mercy last Sunday, WWE had plans to air a segment featuring Charlie Haas impersonating Hornswoggle late in the show, but it was cut due to time constraints. It was cut because they didn’t want the segment to potentially cut off any time from the ladder match between Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho. Additionally, Haas’ impersonation of "Rowdy" Roddy Piper was relegated to dark match duty the next night on Raw, perhaps as to not take attention from the actual Piper being announced as a choice for Santino Marella’s Intercontinental Championship match at Cyber Sunday. Haas lost to Dolph Ziggler in the dark match.
