[3.0] "Probably the most unconfident wrestler in portraying a character on the WWE Roster right now. Quite annoying as a character and very unengaging ringwork. Can instantly generate a face reaction anytime their opponent hits them. (At one point he got Corporate KANE a pop for beating him up while Adam Rose was a face... that is sad)"
Aletheia wrote on 20.02.2016:
[9.0] "I think he is pretty good, he can adapt to a lot of gimmicks and now at the moment he is probably the most well rounded member of the Social Outcasts, also not afraid to say this but be also has probably the best looking Spinebuster in wrestling at the moment, Arn Anderson would be proud and so I am, give him a chance"

[7.0] "This man is very agile for his size. I first saw him as a joke but now I am impressed. He is a decent talker, great wrestler because he can perform very difficult flying moves like a somersault senton off the top rope to the outside, decent technician and a solid brawler. He is a decent worker too. I am now sold on Adam Rose."

[5.0] "Gimmick change needed BADLY! Adam is a good wrestler and he is given no chance to show off what he can do on the main roster! Please don't waste him!"

[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."

[4.0] "Was intrigued with the party people thing when I saw him debut on TV but really wasn't for me he was fun for a full 2 weeks before he became boring."
leblake wrote on 06.04.2015:
[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."
Shimmer fan 2015 wrote on 04.04.2015:
[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."
