[5.0] "Leatherface/Super Leather (better known to WWF/WWE fans as Corporal Kirchner), certainly fared better for FMW than he did for the WWF. While he was largely a "jobber to the stars" enhancement talent during his WWF run, he found moderate tag and singles success on the other side of the Pacific. Still makes appearances from time to time, even in his mid/late 50's."

[8.0] "With his Leatherface gimmick Kirchner portrayed one of my favorite wrestling characters of all times. 9 times out of 10 his entrance would last at least half as long as the match, and why not? His entrance probably was the most exciting things. He'd come out with a snorring chainsaw and would go immediately into the crowd scarring the living hell outta everybody. The Japanese loved the brutal Leatherface gimmick and so do I. There wasn't much wrestling involved in his matches in Japan but man were his matches awesome. He'd clime up unstable scaffoldings to fight and powerbombed guys on beds of nails. The guy is a pure brawler. 90% of his matches took place outside the ring, right in the crowd. Kirchner IS Leatherface. Many have portrayed the character but none of them have come close to the brutal charisma that Kirchner brought to the gimmick."

[6.0] "He was fun as Leatherface in Japan, wasn't too bothered with the rest of his work. Legend has it that he was 1 of the toughest wrestlers WWE ever had, to a point that many were scared to work with him."
