JMTheBadOne wrote on 12.04.2015:
[5.0] "After establishing himself in the indies as a reliable junior heavyweight and tag performer, Jimmy del Ray got the call to join the WWE at a time where smaller wrestlers were in vogue. Though tasked with being a heel at the top level, del Ray managed to become synonymous with Smoky Mountain Wrestling and played well off of Jim Cornette and his partner, Dr. Tom Pritchard. Though acrobatic, he wasn't swift and could've been better defined physically to stand out from the pack."

[3.0] "Not a huge fan of Jiggalo Jimmy. I remember him in the Heavenly Bodies. I always thought he looked like a 80's Porn Star. But he could wrestle somewhat. Just was not a fan"
