Captures and digitals from last night’s Smackdown are now up in the gallery. Coverage of Talking Smack will be up tomorrow! Below are the official results from WWE.com

WWE Hall of Famer Edge returned to host his always memorable talk show “The Cutting Edge” on the 900th episode of SmackDown LIVE, and boy, did it not disappoint. The cornerstone of SmackDown LIVE was in rare form and the WWE Universe could not have been more excited to see The Rated-R Superstar.

This particular episode of “The Cutting Edge” had a little bit of everything — an attempted 5-second pose with Edge and Team SmackDown LIVE mascot James Ellsworth, Edge questioning his former partner Randy Orton, and Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles almost got into it … but then, GONG!

The arena went dark during “The Cutting Edge” and to the ring came the legendary Undertaker. He stared down all those on Team SmackDown LIVE, including (and especially) Shane McMahon, his WrestleMania 32 opponent. The Undertaker first pronounced that there was no better choice for a Commissioner of SmackDown LIVE than McMahon. He then claimed that he was back, “taking souls and digging holes.”

The Deadman then forewarned the entire team that SmackDown LIVE had always been his home and that if Team Blue failed at Survivor Series then the fear of failure would not be their chief concern, but, instead, they should then be fearing the wrath of The Phenom.

As announced earlier this week on Shane McMahon’s Twitter account, Edge will be doing a special edition of The Cutting Edge on this weeks Smackdown! Below is the official synopsis from WWE.com

WWE Hall of Famer and SmackDown LIVE legend Edge will return to Team Blue for the 900th episode to host his always memorable talk show, “The Cutting Edge.”

Not only is WWE.com ecstatic to see Edge come home, but we have also learned that The Rated R-Superstar will welcome SmackDown LIVE’s entire5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Men’s Elimination Match team: SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon, who agreed to fill the final spot on the team last week; WWE World Champion AJ Styles; Dean Ambrose; New Wyatt Family members Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt; as well as team mascot James Ellsworth.

Is it possible for Edge to contain this group’s combustible energy? Can these five competitors and their chinless inspiration possibly co-exist against Team Red at Survivor Series? Well, “The Cutting Edge” has never been known for being peaceful, and we are not willing to bet it will be next week.

This wreaks of awesomeness. Amazon just launched a new “Original Kids” series last week called Bookaboo, and all signs point to it becoming the new Reading Rainbow. The series focuses on a rock-star puppy named Bookaboo. The drummer tours the world with his band, but can’t play without a story a day read by a different celeb each time out. Paula Abdul, Emily Van Camp, and wrestler-turned-actor Adam Copeland (formerly Edge in the WWE) are among the talents who appear on respective episodes.

We caught up with Copeland recently, and asked him to weigh in on the show, his acting career, and the state of professional wrestling. Read on! (Get it?)

What was the initial attraction to Bookaboo?
For me, this was a no brainer. It involves children, a rock n’ roll drumming dog who needs a book read to him, and promotes parental reading and quality time with your children. Sold.

It’s been compared to Reading Rainbow. What were your go-to shows as a kid?
I grew up in Southern Ontario, so for me, The Littlest Giant was a huge one (Get it? Hey, I’m a dad, I’m allowed bad jokes now.), Polka Dot Door, Commander Tom (out of Buffalo), Hammy Hamster, The Secret Railroad, and The Hilarious House of Frankenstein.

What kind of student were you in school?
Average. Stayed out of trouble, believe it or not. Loved the arts and sports. Drama, English, art class, and every sport I could play…which explains why I ended up in WWE for so many years.

You’re doing a lot of acting lately. Can you describe the rush you get filming scenes on, for example, Vikings compared to your ring work?
Filming scenes for something like Vikings gives you more time to study and have choices going into it. They can change at any time because the scene can be blocked an entirely different way than you envisioned, but you can have some sort of idea.

Generally, I have a sense when I start a scene how it’s going, but you never fully know until you see the final product after its edited, with music, etc. With wrestling, and I’m assuming theater, you know right away if something is working, and whether you need to switch gears. There’s a rush that comes with both to be honest.

How would you describe the current state of pro-wrestling – any personal favorites in the ring?

Wrestling will always be sewn in the fabric of pop culture. It will never go away. It will always have its ebbs and flows. I don’t know if it will ever ascend to the mountaintops of the [Steve] Austin and The Rock era again, but that’s no commentary on the talent. Just a sign of the times we live in with so many entertainment outlets. Currently, AJ Styles is on fire and I’m glad he’s finally getting a shot to show what he can do on the biggest stage. I’ve been on “The Revival” bandwagon before they had a bandwagon.

Who would your dream opponent be in the ring – fictional or real?
I would have loved an Ironman match with Bret Hart, or Texas Rattlesnake Steve Austin vs. Rated R Superstar Edge each in our prime. Or because I’m a comic geek, Daredevil or Deadpool.

Totally shifting gears, can you impart some words of wisdom to my nearly two-year-old son?
When in doubt, take a deep breath
