[6.0] "He's not the worlds greatest wrestler, but when it comes down to it he's fine for a hoss. He understands his role in NJPW very well and is generally a great addition to the G1 Climax as he's easy to book in upset victories."

[3.0] "I am absolutely never excited when this guy is in the ring. His 'big guy' moves are all very formulaic and never really too interesting after you've seen them once. He gained a lot of weight to fit this role that NJPW wanted him to play, but that's just made him incredibly slow; unable to build up proper tension or deliver a move with the right impact. During the G1 he can occasionally have maybe 1 good match, but only because he'll be up against a top tier performer who is able to sell Fale's offence and actually make it look damaging for once while also being able to singlehandedly tell a good match narrative involving the slow chopping away of Fale until his size is rendered useless. Throughout the year in all the pointless tag matches he is completely dull, slow, and off-putting. He might honestly be my least favourite wrestler in NJPW, since everyone else on the roster offers something that is either genuinely or ironically entertaining to some extent, while Fale is just a total buzzkill."

[6.0] "Bad Luck Fale know his role in njpw, as a huge monster heel for the babyfaces to overcome, his G1 26(2016) run has yet to have a bad match, no great matches, but no bad matches either."

[6.0] "Bad Luck Fale isn't that bad, watch his matches with Tanahashi, Okada and Nakamura and you'll see that he's a decent wrestler. He plays an important role in the Bullet Club being their enforcer so I give him a 6."

[6.0] "not as bad as anyone thinks he is. Fale plays his role in the Bullet Club as an enforcer, usually doesn't get much time in the ring in Multi man matches. he has put on good matches with the excellent Main Eventers of NJPW with Nakamura, Tanahashi and Okada."

[6.0] "Those giving him bad ratings would have to also poorly rank a number of Gajin that have been draws in Japan such as Brody, Hansen, Vader, etc. While he's not that high of a level with his Psychology or work (at this point) he is definitely credible. While Fale is not the best worker, it's impossible to not give credit for his vast improvement over the past 3 years. He plays the role of a big man well and sets up very unique match ups and has great chemistry with Tanahashi, who he has had his best matches against. He continues to improve and puts in a lot of work to continue to grow within the ring, I can only see him improving over the years. He may never be a top draw, but he will provide values on cards for years to come if he stays a part of New Japan. He's already further along that Matt Bloom (Bernard), Luke Gallows (by a great deal), and again has the potential to keep growing. He does not deserve poor ratings because he isn't doing 720 Springboard Presses or three 450 Splashes per match."

DanTalksRasslin wrote on 07.09.2015:
[5.0] "Best-known as the enforcer for Bullet Club in NJPW, Fale certainly fits that role with his imposing stature. He has a basic "big-man" in-ring skill set, but uses it well as a tag partner or ringside enforcer, and is capable of good singles matches against high-quality opponents."
Ruiner87 wrote on 08.04.2015:
[3.0] "Fat and shit. Fale is capable of being carried to good matches by AMAZING workers, which isn't saying much. He gets gassed very quickly, and there are better big-men workers in his own stable. Just not good at all."
