Jericho's was over a match with Wrestling/RobVanDam that got surprisingly negative reviews(even though most of the commentators actually said it was good, making it more like CheapHeat), while Edge lashed out in a promo about vilification him and Wrestling/{{Lita}} got sleeping behind his wife and Wrestling/MattHardy.

* ''Series/{{Engrenages}}'' had a murder-of-the-week in its second season in which a stereotypical alienated teen boy murdered his slightly older cyber-girlfriend after they met in real life and she rejected him for being too young, then killed himself.
