They were also in the eye of the press when they tried to get CM Punk back into the ring by offering him a sum of 1 million dollars. 5 Star Wrestling used to reserve stadiums for 2,500 people but it was almost always repeated the fact that they could not sell 1000 tickets at least in any of their shows.
