WWE Hall of Famer Adam "Edge" Copeland was in Pittsburgh, PA today on what we are told was WWE business.  There's been a lot of talk lately about Copeland returning to the ring for special appearances, but Copeland had seemingly shut that down on Twitter.  Then, today, he was in Pittsburgh, where Dr. Joseph Maroon, the head of WWE's Medical, is headquartered.  So, stay tuned.

WWE will kick off the Draft this Friday at the Friday Night Smackdown taping in Las Vegas with personalities from FOX and NBC Universal appearing to help draft WWE personalities to Raw and Smackdown.  The word we are hearing is that once the Draft is done, there will be very little crossing over from one brand to another beyond WWE PPVs.  The Draft will conclude on this Monday's Raw.

This Wednesday's WWE NXT will feature WWE NXT Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak vs. Lio Rush and WALTER vs. KUSHIDA.
