[1.0] "This guy never interest me when he first appeared on TV. I don't get the benefit of putting him over Chris Jericho at Wrestlemania when, he was never get anywhere in the card. Then, 2014 he got repackaged as a mexican dancer, whatever its called, and its still didn't get me invested. Overall, he's a complete joke. I don't get why his theme song is considered the top of iTunes at one point when he was completely new in the main roster. Waste of a gimmick and talent."

[6.0] "Fandango is saddled with a gimmick less stale than rotten. But he's actually quite a decent worker -- flashy, fast, and honestly exciting to watch. He's no superstar, that's for sure, but based on talent alone he should have been far more than a jobber. The man also has charisma. Going way back to examine his NXT work, Curtis Hussey showed that he had a real sense of humor and personality. The only reason it never showed was because his gimmick is a pre-Attitude Era throwback which could never have gotten over were it not for a catchy theme tune. There's a bit of wasted potential in Fandango to be sure, though I do feel he gets a bit formulaic with his matches and was never able to convey a serious character despite his personality."

[4.0] "FanDango once had momentum, he beat Y2J at wrestlemania, I expected him to have some impact on the company. But that's not the case with a stale gimmick, Fandango is in lower mid card purgatory."

[5.0] "Fandango is a pretty average in ring worker that has a lot of charisma the problem is the WWE never really has let him show case a lot of it, I think they should have given his Johnny Curtis character more of a chance."

[1.0] "Stale gimmick, boring to watch, stuck on Superstar or Main Event show for a good reason. Never understand why he had got over Y2J at WrestleMania 29, never will I guess... should released him and he must go to TNA and help them out, ohterwise ... The Fandango gimmick would be better in the attitude era , with angle with Val Venis, Goldust or too cool etc... Another good looking guy with limited in-ring skills, promos are good enough..."
Preston Ward Condra wrote on 14.10.2015:
[5.0] "A guy that started out with a pretty uber career. The most over guy the WWE had in 2013 with the fans chanting and singing along to his theme song. Since then, not much has happened or to more of an extent, changed. So far the guy has become very plain and dull and it looks like it'll continue to be that way."
TV14 wrote on 18.07.2015:
[4.0] "This guy is a damn goofball. It's not just his gimmick that sucks but he lacks any shred of real charisma or wrestling talent. That's why it doesn't matter how many times they repackage him no one can get behind such a boring loser."
Matt Stanson wrote on 18.05.2015:
[10.0] "I don't understand why FAAAAAAAAAN-DAAAAAAAAAN-GOOOOOOOOO is rated so low? He's a tremendous talent, knows how to cut a promo. It's wasting a talent by making him a low-card talent. He's a natural worker, a natural talent and a natural look."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 04.04.2015:
[5.0] "Fandango did rather well during his time in both the indies and through the developmental system. Since making his way to the main roster, he's been relatively inconsistent in terms of performance and reception. Give him credit for being the only person in the world who could've made that gimmick work, but his "Johnny Curtis" still shines through Fandango from time to time (which could get him "Striker'ed" from the WWE. )"
