[3.0] "Adam Rose is a really annoying character. He's been on the main roster for about 5 months and the act has gone stale. He has had a few good matches on NXT but on Raw, Smackdown, Superstars or PPVs his matches are rubbish."

[2.0] "I don't think words can adequately sum up how much I dislike Adam Rose. His gimmick is terrible and his wrestling is inadequate. I didn't particularly like him as Leo Kruger but this current run is fully WrestleCrap."

[2.0] "The man behind the gimmicks plays them well, but the latest invention by mr. mcmahon or whoever it was has ruined his entire reputation, leo kruger > adam rose pretty much, this gimmick that he was forced to present just to make it to the biggest picture is absolutely horrendous... what kind of man sucks on a lolipop and spanks other wrestlers in their rear ends? it's queer like, its absurd in a wrestling product to be whitnessing such atrocity. Give this man a solid gimmick or else you will only get 2 points. These two points go solely for how he plays his gimmick, the rest is history."

[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?"

[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."

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."
