[5.0] "While PJ Black (formerly known as Justin Gabriel in the WWE) may never main event at the highest level, he has proven to be a capable tag champion who could also fortify the mid-card if used properly. Black got his start wrestling between the British and South African indie federations. The WWE would take notice of Black and signed him to a developmental contract. In FCW, Black (branded as Justin Angel) managed to secure both the FCW Heavyweight and Tag titles. This success would see Black debut on the main roster as Justin Gabriel, where he would earn the WWE Tag Team Championship alongside Heath Slater as part of The Nexus. Following the dissolution of The Nexus, Slater and Gabriel would continue on with The Corre and earn the tag titles twice more. Yet once The Corre dissolved, Gabriel entered singles competition and would typically flounder on the lower end of the card. Dissatisfied with his position in the company, Black walked out on the company before catching on with GFW. Black found success with GFW, earning TNA's King of the Mountain Title during the TNA/GFW invasion angle as well as earning the GFW NEX-GEN Championship. Given the uncertainty of GFW's future, Black sought his release and joined on with Lucha Underground; where he would go on to earn the LU Trios Titles alongside Jack Evans and WWE alumnus Johnny Mundo."

[7.0] "Though not a real standout to me in WWE (but I'd pick him over many booked above him), he had some good title success, proving his worth on the big stage, with likely even more to offer. Additionally, I'd congratulate him on post-WWE success winning titles in TNA, GFW and Lucha Underground. I don't know if PJ expected to set the world on fire when set back on the indies but if his intention was to make a splash and win some titles before time caught up with him then mission accomplished."

[8.0] "A good wrestler who was very underrated in WWE. Now in the indies he is improving he's gonna be in the second season of Lucha Underground and hope that he can show the world what he can do"

[10.0] "Easily in my opinion one of the best wwe currently a wrestler who has an extraordinary talent and deserved many more opportunities, I think the WWE would be spoiling the talent he has"

[5.0] "Good in the ring, but seems to lack and personality or mic-skills. Would be interesting to see him in tag team in the future."
ADouble wrote on 27.11.2013:
[7.0] "A very talented and athletic wrestler, Gabriel has never really been given a chance outside of the tag division to succeed. This is too bad, as he shows lots of promise in the rare opportunities he's given to shine."
JustinJDMarineau wrote on 18.07.2013:
[9.0] "As a character, I definitely liked Justin Gabriel more when he was a part of the Nexus and the Corre as a bad guy cause he played a prominent role in both stables and whoever they beat down, he went to the top rope, stared downward for a while, then nailed the shooting star press which created more of that intimidation factor amongst both groups! As a babyface, Justin Gabriel isn't too good, he's not too bad, he's alright at best I would say, but that does not take away from me giving him a high rating cause he has always been an awesome wrestler, high flyer, in-ring performer, you name it!"
