[7.0] "Viktor is by far the better member of the Ascension. If given the opportunity he can put on a really good match. He is also decent on the mic but I do no think he has enough charisma. He should go his own way and maybe he could start being relevant like he was in NXT back in 2013-2014. Overall his only issues are lack of charisma and booking problems but overall a good talent."
AMHTP wrote on 22.06.2016:
[3.0] "Squash matches do not make a great tag-team. Viktor isn't as bad as his partner, who is genuinely one of the worst workers in the company today. Still, without NXT-style booking to hide his many faults, it's become very clear that Viktor can't cut it in the big leagues. All he can do is throw around a few power moves, and rather sloppily at that. His promos consist solely of shouting, his gimmick is out of touch (though that isn't entirely his fault), and I don't think it's a terrible loss that the Ascension plunged down the card after their debut."

[1.0] "The Ascension is the worst tag team in WWE today. Viktor along with Konnor are just boring. They suck to put it simple. I have no respect for either of their work in the ring. Their gimmick is also way to close to the Road Warriors which further buries them to the bottom of WWE."

[6.0] "Viktor is a okay talker, has okay charisma, solid worker, solid wrestler but limited, his gimmick in OVW was good and enjoyable. He can have decent matches if given an opportunity. Viktor is miles better than Konnor and should be pushed on his own."

[4.0] "Boring to watch, specially hate his weird attempt at looking meanecing with that scream. He lacks size to look intimidating."
Preston Ward Condra wrote on 20.06.2015:
[1.0] "I don't understand the good remarks the Ascension has. The team got buried by the NWO, DX one time on Raw in 2015 just as the team MIGHT of had a welcoming start to the company. The spiky shoulder pads and attire the group has is also nothing but, a complete Legion Of Doom ripoff. No promise here."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 21.02.2015:
[5.0] "Though Viktor has his share of singles accomplishments at the indie and developmental level, he will likely pan out to be a tag specialist at the highest level. After a rather impressive and well-supported run in NXT, he and his partner Konnor will need to avoid being lost in the shuffle if they're going to make a solid impact in the WWE."

[8.0] "Talented wrestler, I hope we get to see more of him in NXT"
JustinJDMarineau wrote on 05.07.2012:
[10.0] "I was already a really big fan of Rick Victor before because among other things I liked about him, I love the fact that he was trained in the Hart Dungeon, but now that he has developed a very different heel persona than before, I love his character now because he's now the type of heel where he's very evil, cold, cunning, and he doesn't have to say anything at all, just his presence alone is scary and ominous enough to get your attention and I love that about him! Not only that, but he's one of those wrestlers where you just wish that everybody on one single roster is an exact replica of because not only is he a hell of a worker, but it seems like he can put on a damn good match with anyone and can make anybody look good! I know he's on NXT now, but I really hope he gets called up to Raw and Smackdown eventually because he's one of those superstars who is just too damn good to release or push off to the side!"

[9.0] "Rick Victor is an absolutely vicious wrestler, who is incredibly talented. His wide varray of European Uppercuts (aka Canadian Lifters) is just fantastic. I cannot wait to see him on a main stage."
