Being put on tv and having ppv matches isn't what a burial truly is
now granted taking The KOTR away is the closest if that was even any truth to that. And please don't say he had hog pin matches because they were still on ppv and the fued with Henry Godwin got tv time.
If you want a true burial look at how Vader was treated the last year of his run
now it was his fault in part by not losing the weight and refusing to wash his wrestling gear as a sing of good luck. But he was dominated by Kane, reduced to shotgun newyork(or superstars) and lost cleanly to edge his last match.

Wait, you say being on TV and PPV matches isn't a burial but you call Vader's last year a burial? And to somewhat justify your Vader mention, you talk about matches he lost?
I mean, if you admit it was Vader's fault for not losing weight, how is that anything but a self caused burial? Oh, he should continue to be pushed, despite not wanting to be in shape. On top of that, it wasn't like he was in the midst of a big push. Vader was last relevant to WWE angles in the summer of 1997 and that was debatable because he was a substitute in a title match for Ahmed Johnson. Vader's downward spiral began in 1996, if anything. But based on what people who worked there at that time have said, I don't see any time frame after November 1996 where Vader would have been given more than he got, because he was supposed to win the belt at Survivor Series '96, dropped it 2 months later at the Rumble and assuming all other plans came to fruition, wasn't really wrote in for anything much more. And that probably led to him not giving a fuck but I still don't see that as a burial, considering he put it on himself and considering your opinion on it that his final year saw him be buried, he was headed down that road since late 1996. But, what admitted super push did that "burial" strip away from him?
I shouldn't have to explain HHH's situation, the pushed he missed out on and everything that became of it. Because HHH lost what seemed like a cemented opportunity. Vader didn't have that, especially in his final year, considering the closest he was placed in a top tier angle was early 1997 and was overshadowed by Austin/Bret and rightfully so.
