[10.0] "Lynn is perfect. He deserved so much more when he was under WWE Contract. One of the best ECW ever had, one of the men who made the WCW Cruiserweight division what it was, and also a guy who helped make the TNA X Division title mean a hell of a lot more than it does now. Dont forget what he did for ROH and Extreme Rising as well."
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!"

Chris Jericho: "There's a saying in old Westerns that goes: This town isn't big enough for the both of us. Let me paraphrase that old cliché when I say that SmackDown isn't big enough for me. Because I'm bigger than this show. I'm bigger than all of you gelatinous...Read on!
