In the February 29, 2000 issue of Star, there the following writeup appears in the STARPEOPLE section:
Now that ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER has jumped ship, SYLVESTER STALLONE wants to be the hero that saves Planet Hollywood. Not long after ARNOLD cut his ties with the troubled restaurant chain, SLY made an unscheduled appearance at the Los Vegas location. He gave employees an impromptu pep talk, assuring them he could rescue the restaurants. Before he left, SLY asked the staff to remove the life-size cutout of ARNOLD that stood in the restaurant’s entrance.
