[7.0] "Kind of a hard guy to rate. He had some great matches and a lot of charisma, and gets points for getting over as a small guy in the WWF when that was still a very rare thing. Plus he had notable runs with the original nWo AND DX. But his ring work has often been marred over the years by his substance abuse problems, he could barely cut a promo even when sober, and he's been an embarrassment to the industry on many occasions. Plus his second WWF/E run ended up so badly that it led to the term "X-Pac Heat" – negative heat on a wrestler not because they're an effective heel who you want to see lose, but because you just don't want to see them wrestle anymore. On balance, though, I'd like to think that the positives outweigh the negatives."

[8.0] "When he first came onto the WWF scene in the early '90s, Waltman was a smaller man in a land of super-heavyweights, and his ring style, based more on agility, high-flying skill and striking, immediately made him stand out and in the process, helped to break down some of the barriers smaller, lighter talents faced in the WWF. He also had the ability to sell with the best of them, and make virtually any opponent look good. Waltman was also notably a part of not one, but two of the most popular stables of the late '90s, the NWO and DX. Though his character eventually wore out its welcome, Waltman remains an influential figure with a respectable career and a good number of notable performances to his credit."

[9.0] "X-Pac is my most favorite out of all the KLIQ members. Great in-ring abilities, promo skills, and overall charisma! Even though he had his ups and downs in his life, X-Pac is still a great wrestler and will always be one of the greatest cruiserweights of the business!"

[10.0] "Without a doubt the most talented wrestler in the Kliq, DX, or NWO. Some people's nostrils flare up at the mention of his membership in the Kliq. But the most surprising thing about it was that Sean Waltman (I shall simply refer to him by his birth name as he's had so many others) started out as a clean cut babyface, a jobber who suddenly started picking up wins, a high flyer in an era of more "grounded" wrestling, lightning fast (I'm always amazed at how QUICK Sean is in his offense) plus wielder of those savage spin kicks that could come out of nowhere from any angle. After making the jump to the NWO in WCW (and DX in WWE), he began to adopt a more cocky, brash, obnoxious heel persona (and a beard) and began winning championships, in addition to being key members of those two influential groups. After a plane ride from hell, he went to TNA and won the X Division title. But... from his Syxx years on, Waltman's excellent in ring performances were occasionally hampered by drug problems and the backstage drama that came with the Kliq, in WCW and WWE. For that, people rate him lower or downplay his abilities. I am giving him a 10 because he EARNED it. He came from nothing, he was a nobody from Minneapolis, and he went on to make an indelible mark on the world of professional wrestling. He came, he saw, he conquered, he lost... but he seems to be back together in one piece again. One of the best Kids in the game."

[10.0] "pac was one of the all time greats. the aatitude era would not have been the same if it were not for characters like he and dx, as well as the nwo for the opposing team"

[6.0] "Sean Waltman had a pretty decent career in wrestling, winning WWF Tag Team and European titles, WCW Cruiserweight title and also X-Division title in TNA. He was member of both nWo and DX. Although this, Waltman never was a major player whenever he wrestled in WCW or WWF, despite having half of his Kliq friends in high position in both companies. You could compare him to that kid from high school who always hanged around with popular kids and kissed their asses. But he was pretty good worker, who could make his opponents look good, so he served his purpose as a midcarder. I'd like to also explain this ''X-Pac heat'' to people who don't get what it is. ''X-Pac Heat'' is also known as ''Go Away Heat''. It means the crowd is booing not because the wrestler is a good heel, but because that performer either sucks, is boring or is annoying. This heat for X-Pac can be explained by the fact that X-Pac never evolved his character after breakup of DX. In 1998, he was greasy haired, loudmouthed punk doing DX-mannerisms, and later in 2001, he was STILL that greasy haired loudmouthed punk doing DX-mannerisms."

[6.0] "All I really care about remembering of this guy was that X-Pac nearly committed suicide back in 2006. X-Pac came back and said all but, two words at Raw 1000 and I don't remember this guy accomplishing much in TNA either. I also still don't even know what the hell "X-Pac heat" even means."

[9.0] "There is a tendency to underrate Waltman because he at one point in his career let his bad habits infect his work and created the low point that birthed the term "X Pac Heat", but the truth is for the majority of his career Waltman was an exceptional performer. He broke new ground in WWF and was a key part of several major moments in the Attitude Era. He's also continued to redeem himself in later years with some quality indy work. I gotta show some love for Waltman."

[7.0] "A decent midcard act. X-pac was solid with mic work during his times with nWo and DX, and was appealing in the ring with his agile and speedy wrestling style. Main setbacks with him were that he usually let his ego get the better of him thanks to his association with members of the Kliq and his gimmick as X-Pac would get stale into the early 2000s with DX no longer being around after 2000. Beyond that, he was a memorable presence within DX during the WWE's Attitude era."
