[8.0] "Elijah Burke... Sometimes I just don't get WWE. The man had great in-ring skills and in-ring psychology. He was awesome on the mic and really charismatic. He had a decent former-boxer gimmick. He had the tools to become successful. He was actually gradually becoming more successful and over with the crowd. And suddenly in some sort of WWE "glitch"... he's released. TNA seemed to be smart and went to capitalize on that big mistake and eventhough they were able to use him better they weren't able to use him at his full potential. He's still on time to have a major role in any of the companies."

[10.0] "I strongly feel that The Pope is one of the most underrated wrestlers not just today, but in the entire wrestling business in general. He is one of those special superstars that has a great look and has great wrestling skills and amazing charisma beyond belief! To me, Pope had the total package and infinite potential to be a world champion and a great one at that! He's had a lot of ups in his career in both WWE and TNA, but unfortunately he's had a lot of downs in both companies as well especially in WWE cause TNA obviously used him better. He may not have always been utilized and booked in the best way possible by TNA, but they gave The Pope more opportunities and they actually sold merchandise with his name on it. But despite all that, like WWE, TNA never put a championship on him either. I understand that he doesn't have to have the world title right away, but at least put some kind of championship title around his waist like the X-Division title or hell, he could've been the TV champion for all I care, he deserved to be any kind of champion! But now that his TNA contract expired and he chose not to resign, I don't know where he'll go from here in his career now and I guess we'll never see him be at the spot he deserved to be ascended to in both WWE and TNA and it's such a damn shame!"
