[10.0] "I give him credit because he still wrestle at 43 years! "The Innovator of Violence" Tommy Dreamer is perhaps the greatest Extreme wrestler of all time."

[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."

[0.0] "Tommy Dreamer has no character and no gimmick at all. He couldn't cut it in WWE, the only place he was successful was ECW and I never liked ECW. Like most wrestler from ECW Dreamer just yells a lot and hits people with a stick. I know a lot of people like him just because it's the cool thing to like ECW but I am just be honest about him. I personally did not care for him."

steviecw wrote on 22.07.2012:
[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."
