[7.0] "Never thought much of Barbarian when I was little. Just another big brawler. But when I saw him in a street fight at BTW and OMG that was amazing! The match was so much more fun then I thought it would be. At 57 he can still get everyone in the building to yell HolyS**t. That night made me a fun for life."

[7.0] "One of the better big men in the business, he was powerful and agile at the same time. Very intense, had a good run with the Warlord in the 80s and with Meng in the 90s. Deserves a lot more credit than he gets, especially with his fun little singles run in the WWE in the early 90s. A good brawler who could work and have strong matches with the best of them (A great example of this is a tag match from Nitro with Meng against Jericho and Guerrero)."
gaxal0 wrote on 30.09.2015:
[8.0] "Cut from the same cloth as the great Meng, I always thought Barbarian got the short stick in both WWF and WCW. The highlight of his career was part of powers of pain, however his lack of success cast a big shadow over his overall intensity and power in the ring. if Meng was successful given what he brought to the table, imagine what Barbarian would have accomplished if given the chance."
DanTalksRasslin wrote on 08.06.2015:
[6.0] "The Barbarian was a decent brawler who seemed legitimately tough. He never really took off as a single, but had a few good runs as a tag wrestler with the Warlord as the Powers of Pain and with Meng as the Faces of Fear. Continues to work the indies today, often teaming with one (or both) of his old partners."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 06.12.2014:
[6.0] "Though his success came after his mainstream run, Barbarian's run in the indies is essentially where his grade gets saved. One half of the Road Warrior rip-off Powers of Pain, Barbarian was a tag specialist at the highest level; first with the WWE (and still maintained the diving clothesline as his finisher) while pairing up with Meng during his WCW run."
