[2.0] "I liked Leo Kruger but the Adam Rose gimmick is one of the most cringe worthy characters in WWE history. This character has created some of WWE's worst moments ala the Kathy Lee & Hoda segment, matches with the Bunny, and that terrible Oculus segment."

[8.0] "He's very underrated due to having a gimmick that most people seem to dislike. I'm a big fan of him as a wrestler, but I'm not huge on his gimmick. However, he plays it very well and reportedly he was the one that came up with changing to this gimmick in the first place. He's a very solid wrestler, an almost 20 year veteran of the industry, and I only wish WWE would give him a chance to show what he can really do instead of jobbing in 3-4 minute matches on Main Event and Superstars."

[8.0] "I don't watch WWE really anymore but I've seen some of Leppan's matches as Adam Rose and I saw a match of his as Leo Kruger. Leppan as Kruger is so much better than as Adam Rose. This guy is a good wrestler, I've seen it in NXT. He has some charisma and i don't know about his mic skills but I think this guy deserves higher than a 5 as an average. Not his fault WWE stuck him with this character and turned him into a joke."

[5.0] "After emerging from South Africa's wrestling scene, the man formerly known by either Ray Leppan (his real name) or Daemon Duke surfaced in WWE's developmental system as the Leo Kruger. Though he entered FCW as a relatively clean wrestler, he changed into a deranged maniac once FCW bloomed into NXT. Yet since the character was likely too similar in the vein of Bray Wyatt, he was repackaged as the party animal Adam Rose once he made it to the WWE's main roster. Despite his accomplishments with FCW, he didn't do much of note in NXT and looks relegated to lower mid-card status since he has a tendency to be outshined by The Bunny in his group. Will he ever break through in the WWE, or will he be released before he has the opportunity to do so?"
TylerMayer wrote on 14.01.2015:
[7.0] "It's too bad. The guy can wrestle, no doubt about it. His spine buster is vicious and he has a streak of mean moves that look just as painful as he hopes. However, his gimmick, the Party guy Adam Rose, is god awful. The fans are not into it, and unfortunately, I think it is going to cost him his job in the company. What I will say is that since his heel turn, Adam Rose has been a lot more interesting. Now that his "Rose Buds" are scared of him, and he believes he is a God, I think his character's interest has grown trifold. Here's to hoping he gets a second chance."

[5.0] "Adam Rose is nothing I haven't seen before. He may have had a hot streak, but that doesn't change the fact that he's just average. The reason I'm saying this is the "hot" streak he had, was with terrible matches, and beginning wrestlers. He has had no matches that are worth watching because most of the fights I've seen, the only way he one was with a surprise pinfall. It's no surprise that he was unable to defeat Kane on the 15th year anniversary on Smackdown, because he's just a basic wrestler."
