[10.0] "I pretty much always love watching Rhino, whether it's in ECW, WWF/E, TNA, or any of the many other promotions where he has done his thing. He has been putting out good matches with great consistency for almost 20 years now and seems almost ageless, it's incredible how he is able to keep up such quality. Wish he'd have gotten a bigger run on top of something but his career stands for itself."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 29.06.2015:
[7.0] "At worst, Rhyno was a decent mid-carder at the highest level. At best, he was a well-decorated indie stud who was also worthy of holding the ECW World Championship and NWA World Heavyweight Championship (as contested in TNA. ) Additionally, Rhyno as also won the WWE United States Championship and WWE Hardcore Championship. Rhyno has recently resurfaced in NXT in a regular role and has seemingly caused the WWE to establish a new business model in for how they attract, address, and sign well-established free agents to non-exclusive deals."
Preston Ward Condra wrote on 20.06.2015:
[5.0] "Rhyno has always been treated like a low mid-carder for his entire wrestling career, regardless of the promotion. He was never given a shot at the WWE title and I remember when this guy made the move to TNA in 2008 and feuding with his real life best friend Christian (besides Edge) the crowd could of cared less. Rhyno losing his job after getting into a fight with his wife back in 2005, at Wrestlemania 21 is probably more notable than his entire WWE run."

DanTalksRasslin wrote on 23.03.2015:
[8.0] "Rhino's a guy I actually appreciate even more now than I did when he was in the "big leagues. " Can always be counted on for a hard-hitting brawl, and can be a fine headliner on the indy level or a solid upper-mid level guy or enforcer figure in the national-level companies. He's only gotten better in the ring over the years, and despite being a 20-year veteran he's still under 40, so he should have plenty of gas left in the tank."
Leone wrote on 10.03.2014:
[8.0] "Before Brock Lesnar became an unstoppable Rookie in WWE in 2002, Rhino was doing the same thing in ECW, and while he was there, he was brilliantly booked. Not only that, but The Gore was possibly the best spear in the business at the time. It fit his character perfectly. WWE also used him very well in 2001. But after receiving the injuries that put him on the shelf for the whole of 2002, he hasn't seen quite the same degree of interest or momentum. Yes, he won the NWA title, but it was short lived. I see Rhino as someone who had great potential, but unfortunately much of his success and legacy happened early."

[9.0] "Rhino does what he does at very high level. Everyone knows what you get when you have Rhino. Not the guy to be a face of the company but very good wrestler when used in the role of his own."
JustinJDMarineau wrote on 29.04.2012:
[10.0] "I have always been a big Rhino fan and ever since he left TNA in late 2010 (THANK GOD! ), every now and then, I've missed seeing Rhino in the ring cause he's such an awesome wrestler, and I saw him a little bit last year in Ring Of Honor as a part of the Embassy and then I saw him on Edge's latest DVD that came out recently, but now he's back in ROH and I'm loving it! Granted, I don't really care for the fact that he's in the House Of Truth now because I don't like Truth Martini that much, I would rather have him still be in the Embassy Limited, but at the end of the day, I still get to see Rhino on ROH TV now so that's definitely a big plus!"
