Phenomenal91 wrote on 20.07.2014:
[5.0] "Leo Kruger, the deranged South African hunter character, was brilliant, creepy, and excellent in the ring. He had potential to be a great threat to heels AND faces, simply because he was so fearsome. Why they scrapped that excellent gimmick for the character of Adam Rose, I'll never know. Adam Rose is the kind of gimmick that will be looked back upon with laughter 5 years from now. You simply can't take him seriously at all. I give this talented wrestler 5 points because, underneath his circus act, there beats the heart of a dedicated hard worker. I'd rate him even higher if he were still Leo Kruger. One of the great lost opportunities in recent memory."

[4.0] "Nothing special - one of these wrestlers, that wear tights. When WWE gave him gimmick of "Leo Kruger", I was at a loss - how his sugary face can be relevant for this gimmick?"
L3NA wrote on 23.05.2014:
[6.0] "Adam Rose is a strong worker, as proven by his NXT matches, I'll have to see where this gimmick goes, but for now, his "Rosebuds" are the only highlights for me."

[9.0] "Leo is a very talented wrestler. Highly skilled in the ring. Can pull off interesting matches that are quite good. SOlid mic skills. Future world champion in WWE."
Super Josh wrote on 26.03.2014:
[8.0] "I like Adam Rose a lot but it should be played by someone else. Leo Kruger was great and he fits the character perfectly! He does a good job."

[8.0] "I like Leo Kruger but not Adam Rose. I don't wanna see "Adam Rose vs Fandango in a dance contest! ""
ADouble wrote on 30.11.2013:
[6.0] "Kruger certainly plays his gimmick well outside the ring, and I love the idea of someone with a Kraven the Hunter gimmick in WWE. My biggest problem with him is that he isn't all that interesting once the match actually starts. His matches tend to be dull unless he's in there with someone like Cesaro or Sami, and he doesn't communicate his gimmick well in the ring. Still, I like Leo, and I think WWE should be able to find a role for him at some point."
jchiofal wrote on 13.07.2013:
[10.0] "Leo Kruger is one of the more interesting wrestlers in NXT. He has an old school style, consisting of a very slow, and methodical pace, and an intense usage of in-ring psychology. Kruger's style is along the lines of his gimmick, which is very interesting to say the least. He matches are always very fun to watch, and are a great throwback."
HHH Pedigree wrote on 20.07.2012:
[7.0] "I watched him at NXT and I think that he has a lot of tings to capture the gold. Abilities, body, micro, gimmick..."
