In a rather interesting move, WWE is now encouraging fans that attend live events to dress up as their favorite wrestlers and legends. This comes shortly after Vince McMahon grew irate over Dwayne Johnson breaking away from the script on a recent episode of Monday Night Raw and putting focus on fans that were dressed as Randy Savage and Hulk Hogan, the latter of which has been banned from the company because of racial comments.

When Dwayne Johnson made his cameo appearance on Monday Night Raw, he entertained the audience by going off script and endorsing a couple of fans that were dressed like WWE legends. One of them was dressed as Hulk Hogan, a person that Vince McMahon is avoiding right now because they do not want to be associated with the bad publicity. McMahon was said to be infuriated by the moment, but he knows that he still needs Johnson.

Just to show you how far WWE is taking this thing, security in the arena at Monday Night Raw this week not only banned signs about Hulk Hogan, they also forced the paying audience members to change their shirts if it involved the former world heavyweight champion. Management really wants to stay as far away from their legendary star as they can.

A handful of Hulk Hogan supporter tried to show their loyalty to the legend at Monday Night Raw in Oklahoma City. However, management was not having any of that. They informed the security guards at the arena to confiscate any signs that made reference to Hogan. They did not want to risk the chance of having anything show up on television.

Since management still wants to stack the deck on the next episode of Monday Night Raw, they have decided to call upon one of the biggest legends in the industry to replace Kevin Nash, who was suspended by WWE after being involved in a domestic violence incident with his son. Ric Flair will join Shawn Michaels, Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall on the episode. The legendary performers will be asked to promote the Royal Rumble.

Initially, Kevin Nash was to have been a big part of the promotional campaign for the Royal Rumble, having been scheduled to make an appearance alongside Shawn Michaels, Scott Hall and Hulk Hogan on the episode of Monday Night Raw before the pay per view. However, with his arrest, it appears that WWE officials have opted to remove him from the event. They are going about it quietly, though, as to not generate any more publicity from the situation.

WWE wants to give the Royal Rumble a kick start, so management has decided to do something very special on the final episode of Monday Night Raw before the big pay per view. The special will be called Raw reunion, which will feature the on screen returns of real life best friends Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Shawn Michaels. The trio will also be joined by Hulk Hogan, another performer that was in the nWo. The stable could be the theme for the evening.
