[6.0] "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."
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."
ShawnDraven wrote on 11.12.2014:
[5.0] "I don't know who made the call to change this guy's character, especially considering how well the "big game hunter" was working for him, but they made a mistake. Sure the Adam Rose gimmick worked in NXT, but now he got called up to the main roster and is being outshined by a guy in a bunny suit. Free Leo Kruger!"
Wrestling Scholar 98 wrote on 25.10.2014:
[2.0] "Adam Rose is probably the worst wrestler i have ener seen. This guy can't really wrestle. Rose is basically all gimmick. That is the only "good" thing about him, and that gets incredibly tedious. He needs to be trained alot more before he gets my full fledged attention."
bryan316 wrote on 01.10.2014:
[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."
sevendaughters wrote on 30.08.2014:
[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."
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?"
