[4.0] "Jerry Lynn is very overrated. While I admit he can wrestle ok (that is why I will give him a 4 and not a 0), he has no charisma or character at all. He is just blah and forgettable. I can't even remember any of his matches."

[10.0] "An underrated wrestler who made nice figure in all company that he worked. Despite he had a long historic until he came in TNA, he was asimilated like a TNA X-Division original."
JMTheBadOne wrote on 10.04.2015:
[8.0] "Jerry Lynn was the prototype for how smaller wrestlers changed the business (for the better. ) Though small in stature, Lynn had a lot of skill. Not one to be content with merely doing a job (as he was relegated to early in his career), he went out and wrestled anywhere he could (which included a trip to Japan with Michinoku Pro. ) Though he still did more jobs than victories upon reappearing in the major American promotions, it was worth it once he won the ECW Championship in 2000. From there, he enjoyed reigns with WWE's Light Heavyweight Title, TNA's X-Division Title, the ROH World Title, and the NWA-TNA Tag Belts with AJ Styles (in addition to a plethora of indie championships awarded since. ) I'd give him a 7 for his overall body of work, and +1 for being an innovator."
Paul Allain wrote on 23.02.2014:
[6.0] "Jerry Lynn proved he was an accomplished wrestler in every promotion he took a part of, but he never successfully remained at the top of them. Sadly, for all his technical acumen, his moveset, however large, became predictable, and his charisma, while adequate, never transcended above. That's why his runs as a top champion (ECW, ROH) ended up being short-lived and not really memorable. He could reach the sky, but never really stayed there."
Leone wrote on 10.12.2013:
[9.0] "Despite more or less working as a Jobber for the 1st 10 years of his career, Jerry Lynn proved himself to be an important part of any locker room he went into. Like CM Punk once said about Lynn "Jerry Lynn can carry a bag of sh*t", meaning he could wrestle a good match against someone inexperienced or not that good, guide them through it, and make it out the other end. He rarely made a mistake in the ring, possessed an arsenal of well polished moves, sold very well, and even continued a match were he almost died (ECW Hardcore Heaven '99). he helped path the way for smaller wrestlers to get into the business, and even into his 40s, he continued to wrestle very good matches against much younger talent. His mic skills were just okay, but people paid to see him wrestle and wrestle very well."

[10.0] "From WCW to ECW to WWE to TNA to ROH... Jerry Lynn was a TRUE F'N Show! Even now on his retirement tour in beat-up shape, almost apologetic, he's still putting on excellent matches... his Extreme Rising farewell against Homicide will leave a lasting memory for me. You don't hold the World Heavyweight Championship in both ECW and ROH unless you're pretty damn good!"

Cactus Jack: "More than anyone else in that ECW dressing room, Tommy Dreamer, maybe more than anyone else in the wrestling industry you are willing to pay the price. To sweat, to bleed, to suffer. You're willing to bear that cross. And I say Tommy, DON'T DO IT!...Read on!
