- The 2016 WWE Draft is currently scheduled to take place on the July 11th episode of Monday Night Raw.

- The plan as of earlier this week was for Shane McMahon to run Raw and Stephanie McMahon to run Smackdown. John Cena is slated to headline one show, with Roman Reigns headlining the other. This likely scraps Cena beating Rusev on next week's Raw for the United States Championship but not 100%.

- There is scheduled to be two different world champions for each brand, along with the Intercontinental Championship on Raw and the United States Championship on Smackdown.

- They haven't decided if they are going to have women on one show or bring up more from NXT and have them on both shows. There are scheduled to be more call-ups from NXT, the current number is scheduled to be between five and ten workers.

- The USA Network led the charge in Smackdown going live. I know we've detailed these negotiations before and they were finally given the green light.

- The world champion for the Smackdown brand is currently scheduled to be crowned at WWE Battleground in July.
