[9.0] "Since his ROH Return the guy is on fire! His gimmick work & mic work is amazing and one of the finest of this decade, including his TNA work. His moveset is great but repeatative and non changing, but the way he executes the moves with motivation and perfect in every situation with (mostly) on point storytelling behind it. Being one of the fiest promo sctors and draws for ROH in history, just a few more truly great, great matches are missing from being a 10/10......"

[8.0] "In 2014, I really didn't care for Jay Lethal. I had liked some of the comedy stuff he did with Flair & stuff, but I never would consider myself a fan or anything. In 2015, the man proved to me that he is solid in the ring, and one of the best promos in wrestling. He is definitely one of the top 2-3 talents in ROH today."

[8.0] "No way should Jay Lethal have a sub-7. 00 rating. He had a ton of potential in his TNA days but was misused. He's thrived since returning to ROH and very deservedly so. Lethal's a wrestler who isn't necessarily spectacular at a single aspect of wrestling – he's not a GREAT worker, not a GREAT promo guy, etc. – but he IS good to very good in pretty much all aspects of the business."

[10.0] "With *very* successful runs in both the TNA X Division and Tag Team Division (albeit less decorated) and the indies (FWE, JAPW, English and Scottish titles), Lethal has gone to become a true World Champion in ROH, accruing the Pure Championship, Television Championship twice and being the current reigning World Champion. Lethal has defended that title in England, Scotland, Japan, Canada and all across the United States, a lot like Drew Galloway's efforts for ICW/EVOLVE/TNA, Lethal is a true traveling World Champion."
Damian wrote on 03.03.2016:
[4.0] "I don't get the love and the hype for this guy. He is average at best. His look is average, his in-ring skills are average, his promos, his body, his move set... The two only things above average about him is his manager, Truth Martini (who's awesome) and his selling. That's it."
Evan13 wrote on 01.03.2016:
[10.0] "Ever since his return to ROH, he's consistently been one of the best in-ring performers that they have. He's worked hard and shed the Black Machismo image from his TNA days and come into his own as a main eventer."

[9.0] "Jay Lethal is pretty underrated here, I think. After turning heel, he's really come into his own as an overall performer. He's a great worker and his promos are among the best in the business right now. Jay Lethal and Truth Martini gel together really well. He's much more than a Randy Savage and Ric Flair impersonator (although those are entertaining, too)."
arrancar wrote on 19.02.2016:
[6.0] "Alright wrestler that can sell really well, but his mic skills are quite poor for someone who constantly cuts promos. He usually just repeats "I am the greatest wrestler in the world", maybe adding some very slight variation to that set of words every now and then, and repeats it over and over. I expect a lot more from someone who is being pushed as the face of ROH. I did enjoy his reign as the double ROH champion, but I wish he was the type of heel that won matches on his own with dirty tactics rather than constantly using Truth Martini or anyone else in the House of Truth to interfere on his behalf, since that often takes away from the opportunity to showcase his talent as a wrestler and in-ring performer and ruins the quality of the match he was having. I'm still enjoying his general attitude and charisma in ROH, and I really think he suits the ROH World Championship well. Hopefully he continues his reign (so as to help build up other wrestlers in ROH), works on his mic skills, improves his wrestling a bit, becomes more independent, and then maybe we'll have a top star."

[7.0] "Very charismatic, and a very good promo, although I find his in-ring work to be sub-standard given his position. That isn't to say that he's bad, because he is very good. However, there are many people working in North America who consistently have better matches."
