WWE has officially announced that they will return to Auckland, New Zealand for the first time in five years August 10 as a part of this year’s tour of Australia this summer.

In the arena at Raw, they just showed a promo ENCOURAGING fans to dress up as their favorite stars. There was a little bit of controversy a few weeks ago in Miami when fans dressed like Macho Man, Hulk Hogan and others in the front row were moved due to being a distraction on camera. But due to fan reaction they were moved back to their seats and even made a part of The Rock’s appearance that night. It seems the WWE is making their stance clear on costumes and fans.

Updated card for the February 21 Fast Lane pay-per-view:

Brock Lesnar versus Dean Ambrose versus Roman Reigns (Winner to face Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Title at Wrestlemania 32)
Alberto del Rio versus Kalisto for the WWE United States Championship
Brie Bella versus Charlotte for the WWE Divas Title
