5 Star Wrestling Promotion Folds, Company Release Statement & Roster Members React


British independent wrestling company, 5 Star Wrestling has announced this week that the promotion is officially folding, despite the fact that televised events were scheduled.

Despite attempts to finish the remaining shows (which for fans who had purchased tickets can get refunded), 5 Star Wrestling announced on social media those shows would not be taking place.

Unfortunately, the company who runs the events has been shut down which has forced 5 Star Wrestling to be canceled. The promotion had mixed some of the top British wrestlers with world known stars such as Rey Mysterio and was being aired on free TV in the UK.

The promotion has been a controversial topic amongst people in the UK wrestling scene, with many people stating that the company didn’t represent British wrestling correctly. 5 Star once offered CM Punk $1million to return to wrestling and promised a 128-man tournament, which was then rescheduled for February 2018, but never took place.

Despite the fact it was a controversial company, 5 Star Wrestling was offering wrestlers regular paid work and it is always a shame to see a promotion fold, a sentiment that was shared by several members of the 5 Star roster who have commented on the situation.
