[7.0] "Can definitely stand his ground in the ring, but his definite lack of mic skills and mediocre charisma is something else. Had a few good Hardcore matches. One of which being a favorite of mine back at One Stand Night in 2006 but, there wasn't much to Dreamer beyond a few matches of his, worth digging up and watching."

[7.0] "It absolutely sucks that Tommy Dreamer's WWECW Heavyweight Championship reign was longer than his ECW Heavyweight Championship reign, but it's also cool that his image was able to keep fans interested in the WWE's "third" promotion as it followed it's defunct predecessor. Dreamer got over in a fantastic way by not only being booked as the quintessential underdog, but also through demonstrating a tolerance for pain that sets him apart for most men. Though his career as a day-to-day superstar may be behind him, he still operates his House of Hardcore promotion while making guest contributions to both WWE and TNA."

[10.0] "Tommy was always great at playing the everyman/underdog babyface, and while maybe not a top-of-the-line technical grappler, he could always be counted on for an entertaining brawl, especially with weapons involved. He has always been a selfless performer as well - maybe to a fault - and always does what he can to make his opponent look good, even at the expense of his own glory. As the promoter and booker of his own House of Hardcore promotion, he has shown for my money one of the top wrestling minds out there today, putting on very entertaining shows with just a pinch of ECW nostalgia, but the main focus on showcasing the best current and upcoming talent on the indy scene. Clearly the ECW tradition of booking wrestlers to their strengths and showcasing many different styles lives on in Dreamer. I'm a Tommy Dreamer guy."

[10.0] "He was never the greatest pure wrestler. He wasn't on the level of Kurt Angle or Brock Lesnar. But unlike those two, Tommy made you believe that YOU, the average guy on the streets, could step into that ring and be a hero to many. To make YOUR dream come true. He was never meant to be a champion, yet he's held belts all over the world. He takes inhuman beatings like nobody else, yet he contributed greatly to the "business" side of wrestling in both ECW, WWE, and his new House of Hardcore promotion. No other wrestler in the world has connected with the people quite like Tommy Dreamer. He made his own legacy, and it's one he can be proud of."
Leone wrote on 13.10.2014:
[8.0] "Put Tommy Dreamer in a good feud, and he makes an excellent sympathetic babyface. Put him in a hardcore match, and he proves to be entertaining and pretty creative. He's not a jobber, but he is definitely a worker. Like Mick Foley and Sabu, Dreamer often took bumps and spots that nobody else wanted to do, which landed him in hospital many times. It got him over, even when his goal was to get others over. His toughness has been well known for years, and he's a very good brawler who likes to get fans involved in the match. He's quite strong, his speed is average, and his technical skill, at most, is basic stuff (He's a worker, but not a workhorse). He has a lot of moves in his arsenal, some of which he performs with good polish (Submission holds, puroresu finishers, DDTs, spinebusters, neckbreakers), and others (particularly his kicks and splashes) can be very sloppy. Post-ECW, Dreamer will always be associated with that time period everywhere he goes. And even though he had mild success in WWE, he didn't move on or adapt the way Raven, Dudleys, Van Dam, Rhyno, Tajiri and Heyman did. Which is unfortunate. But he did leave his mark on the wrestling world quite early in his career."

[10.0] "One of the absolute greats of his era, this unlikely world champion had a huge number of world class matches/brawls in ECW (including one brief world title run and three tag title reigns) and proved a very reliable addition to the WWF/WWE RAW roster, having very solid lower-card matches against Stevie Richards, D'Lo Brown, Rob Van Dam, Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker, Edge and a very memorable DQ loss to The Big Show. He would also enjoy some success in this period as Hardcore Champion. Though he was very strong on the ECW One Night Stand PPV's, his contribution to WWE ECW was less notable and his body did begin to deteriorate but he did still do good work with CM Punk, John Morrison, The Miz, Elijah Burke, Zack Ryder, William Regal, Randy Orton, Jack Swagger and Christian. Not to mention a second World Championship run. His year in TNA too was flawed but enjoyable. Tommy was long past his best and appeared largely on the losing end but he certainly showed his performer's passion and went all out in a plethora of PPV matches with men like Raven, AJ Styles, RVD, Robert Roode and Bully Ray. Tommy is certainly not what he was but he is a true fan who has done a lot on and off-camera. I'll never tire of seeing him perform. I hope his House Of Hardcore promotion does well."

Jeff Jarrett: "Kurt Angle, some people are saying that after you poked me back into the ring last week, it's gonna be a decision that I'm gonna regret. Some people are saying that I don't stand a chance - being that you're at the top of your game and I haven't...Read on!
