[9.0] "Huge respect for Steve Corino. Between the ECW World Championship, NWA World Championship, WWC Universal Championship, constant tours of Japan, endless trips to Europe and the ROH World Tag Team Championship, Corino has managed to find a way to stay relevant in professional wrestling for a long long time. Even in 2016, he's successfully capturing titles on the independents and appearing weekly for ROH. He also has a place in my heart for his run the slightly underrated MLW World Heavyweight Championship."

[3.0] "This rating is strictly for him as a commentator. In his first commentary role with ROH, the guy was totally insufferable. In his second stint he had chilled a bit and his shtick was okay for a while but repeats the same jokes over and over with no signs of any new material of note. He manages to stain the ROH product really badly, tbh."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 09.04.2015:
[7.0] "When Steve Corino broke into wrestling, he didn't have the ideal size to make an impact in the WWE (or didn't have the clout that the incoming junior heavyweights had as the WWE was in the fight for their supremacy. ) Some time ago, that would've limited a wrestlers options to staying in the American indies/territories and being the standard issue "ham and egg'er. " Not Steve Corino, who after a decent run in ECW went to become a very well-traveled and cruical wrestler for many of the indie and secondary feds (most notably ROH an Zero1. ) Now does play-by-play for ROH when he isn't wrestling in the indies and gets way excited whenever there's a Superkick party!"

[10.0] "Unfortunately I wasn't able to see any of Steve Corino's work in ECW when I was little or his past stuff in ROH before I started watching it in 2011, but I could not have started watching him at a better time cause now I'm able to say that this guy can make any layer to his character work to perfection! When he was a good guy in ROH doing his rehab storyline, he was excellent at that, but he's WAY WAY WAY better as a bad guy! As a heel, he can get under your skin so much not only because he can be annoying, but so much to the point where there is no filter in what he says and anything he says can be extremely controversial at times and he doesn't care who he says extreme things to either which I think is hilarious most of the time! In my opinion, to most of the heels of today, no disrespect to them but Steve Corino is a modern day heel character's dream and that really says a lot!"
Leone wrote on 18.03.2013:
[10.0] "Steve Corino is a great wrestler and storyteller who very enjoyable on the mic, particularly as a heel. Despite his "anti-hardcore wrestling" gimmick in ECW, he was 1 of the best sellers of hardcore wrestling, as he would have bled like Ric Flair in a good grudge match. As the years went by, he evolved as a performer. Sure, he piled on the pounds, but his wrestling improved. He became a great technician, and he's 1 of few North American wrestlers who effectively combined American wrestling with Japanese Strong Style. Outside of several dark and squash matches, He didn't sign with the WWE, and it doesn't matter at all. In the end, they are missing out on a great talent."
