[8.0] "I respect the hell out of the fighting spirit and iconoclastic behavior but I think he's a pussy for hiding behind a tag team, especially when Eddie made a better partner in 'Dojo Bros, ' instead of carving his own path and being as ambitious as possible for someone limited by his size. Austin Aries has (mostly) succeeded throughout his 13 year plus career; there's no reason someone with Davey's vibrant Dynamite/Benoit vibe can't achieve some great heights when placed within the specter of a goof like Gaburick who's obviously has a fetish for similarly statured dudes (J Matthews. ) Digressing... Davey's delivered some great moments over a colorful eight years that has seemingly turned beige each succeeding year after '11. I'll never forget standing in front of the dude in line at McDonald's he has a laser-like presence that in his big moments envelops (PWG "As the Worm Turns") but sometimes harried and unfulfilling (ROH "Best in the World 2011") or just vacant (PWG "BOLA" 2006 - though placed in an awkward position by S Dragon's injury. )"

[6.0] "Davey Richards can be frustrating to watch some times (especially during his indy days), but when he is good, he is damn good. He has had some great matches vs. the likes of Bryan Danielson, Kota Ibushi, KENTA & others, but he also has had some awful ones throughout his career. His selling can be disappointing at times, some times his matches go too long and involve way too many nearfalls & big move kickouts for my liking."

[9.0] "Davey can be any type of wrestler he wants and would be the best in that category. Simply put davey is the true epitome of an allrounder. The only thing that limits him is his size and that's why he can only get a 9. sorry davey genetics f*cked you."
Hunter Dunn wrote on 27.07.2015:
[9.0] "Excellent worker. He is technically brilliant, very fluent with his moves and very good with facial expressions. His only flaws are that at times he doesn't sell enough and isn't the best on the mic but despite it, he always entertains in the ring whether it's as a singles or tag star"
yanus wrote on 26.04.2015:
[6.0] "Super athletic and very high workrate, but his lack of psychology or selling makes him pretty much a caricature of the often criticised indy style. Had too many good matches to completely dismiss him, but can't rate him too high."
DanTalksRasslin wrote on 15.04.2015:
[8.0] "Certainly on the top shelf of technical wrestlers currently, and mixes that style with some impressive high-flying and MMA-style striking. In ROH, his propensity for working too fast from move to move at the expense of selling and psychology often drove me nuts, but he seems to have toned that stuff down quite a bit since jumping to TNA and has shown not only that he can sell, but is actually quite good at it. His lack of charisma is still a mark against him, but presenting him as a Dean Malenko-type "ice man" can work around that. A great addition to both the tag and X divisions of TNA, and in the future could potentially move further up the card."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 19.12.2014:
[7.0] "Though slight in stature, Davey Richards is amongst the premier tag wrestlers in professional wrestling today. After carving a name out for themselves in ROH, they're currently one of the top tag teams in TNA."

[10.0] "Richardsís reputation and high praise stems not from his impressive microphone ability, his look or his presence, but from what he produces inside a wrestling ring. His style may come under criticism, but when you look at it realistically, Davey Richards could be argued as one of the best wrestlers on the planet right now."
Phenomenal91 wrote on 12.08.2014:
[8.0] "One of the best in the world, who throws the sickest kicks this side of the American Dragon. Not much in the way of personality or mic skills, but he never fails to excite (or incite) a crowd whenever necessary. His work in ROH is brilliant, and it's a shame he joined TNA just as they were losing TV support, because that would have been an excellent opportunity to introduce him to an even wider audience. Oh well. Whatever the future holds for Davey, you can bet it will involve championships and accolades."
daniel cassidy wrote on 28.06.2014:
[0.0] "It's one thing to look flashy and steal a show. It's another thing to constantly put yourself over, destroy a match's psychology to ensure you look tough and to no-sell for the sole purpose of looking better than your opponent. Davey is a fantastic technician, comparable to a Dynamite or Danielson, it's his ego, however, that causes him to lose respect from educated fans, promoters (guy basically gave ROH "the bird") and locker-rooms alike. I think this guy should really work on acting the part--his ego would fly in the 80s perhaps, not the modern day. I just don't see him progressing any further in the circuit with the way he carries himself around and presents in the ring."
