[6.0] "Assets: His business savvy has allowed him to establish a successful career almost entirely outside the confines of major league promotions. Has great charisma and image. His antics have drawn attention from disaffected fans who miss the wild antics of The Attitude Era. - - - Flaws: His antics have also drawn the ire from traditionalists for being too over the top. His mic skills aren't on par with his image in a live environment. Has reached a point in his career where - by his own volition - a major league run isn't necessary, so he will never prove his mettle at the highest level. - - - Career Potential: Exceptional independent circuit attraction wrestler and capable minor league wrestler."

[1.0] "Joey Ryan hatte in der Vergangenheit ab und an mal 1-2 solide Matches mit guten Workern, aber inzwischen ist er auf einem absoluten Tiefpunkt angekommen. Alleine kann er gar nicht mehr überzeugen. Seine Art im Ring zu agieren hat nichts mit Wrestling zu tun, es ruiniert das Business. Noch dazu outet er sich auf Twitter immer mehr, dass er das Business, in dem er leider sein Geld verdient, nicht mal ansatzweise kennt. Mit gutem Willen ein Punkt."

[2.0] "I hate that wrestler. Joey Ryan is bad, ridiculous, and his gimmick is super cringe. I don't understand how some people can get turned on by that kind of character. Just horrible. It has never evolved and will always remain bad."
NoLifeKing wrote on 26.04.2020:
[2.0] "A jackass who wants to get over without putting any effort. Average in the ring. I agree with everything Jim Cornette has said about him. Also, he's not funny and the audience doesn't take him seriously. I don't know how a lot of wrestling fans still cheering for that idiot."
Ma Stump Puller wrote on 21.03.2020:
[4.0] "His entire gimmick is a single joke over and over again. Good for short comedy matches, but god forbid you give him anything longer than 9 minutes. The only reason why it continues to be over with the crowd is because he takes it to such a extreme. Maybe the comedy is hiding some actual talent, who knows."
Cheker wrote on 03.01.2020:
[3.0] "Ahah penis xD There's some charisma there, but not anything else. Supposedly he was a decent technical wrestler pre injuries, some 15 years ago. I have not seen those matches, and it's not like that matters that much considering he's still active now, and his current work is garbage. Joey Ryan deserves credit for being one of PWG's cofounders. Nothing else."

[10.0] "This amazing man is the master of Dong Style. His Dong Style wrestling revolutionized how I looked at wrestling. Before Joey Ryan I mainly enjoyed serious people , however , watching Joey Ryan made me remember why I loved wrestling as a child. The goofiness that makes you laugh is amazing. Remember the Res-Erection , anyone?"

[3.0] "I remember first seeing this guy in TNA during that weird shoot-contest thing they were doing & I was really rooting for him. There was definitely something there. Well, fast forward a decade & that mindset is totally out the window. Joey Ryan has devolved into a one-note joke wrestler. If you've seen one Joey Ryan match, you've seen them all. Lots of jokes with his penis & sexual shenanigans. If he doesn't completely alter what he does as a performer, I don't know how he can last much longer. Aren't people sick of seeing the penis-plex spot already?"

[2.0] "I've tried for so long to force myself to like or even tolerate Joey Ryan. Unfortunately, I just can't. There is no denying that he is charismatic as hell hence why he received at least 2 points from me. His gimmick, on the other hand, is one of my least favorite of all time and it just fuels the "look how stupid and fake professional wrestling is" argument."

[0.0] "A complete embarrassment to professional wrestling. I remember him from his TNA run when he was a bad wrestler with a terrible look who never really did anything of note. He re-emerged recently on the indy scene as the dick wrestler which is the absolute worst comedy act I've ever seen. This guy shouldn't be getting any attention whatsoever but because there are people out there that are stupid enough to pay him money to touch his genitals (yes, this actually happened) and a porn company that is willing to sponsor him, he's made a career out of obscene "comedy". Also known for his attempt to launch a harassment campaign against Jim Cornette on Twitter and his pretentious claim that the low-rent garbage he does is his "art" and therefore immune from criticism. The sooner he's out of wrestling, the better."

[1.0] "Please God make it stop. I really enjoy comedy and wrestling. I love when they are combined. Joey Ryan is terrible at both. It's not funny, it's not wrestling and it's not funny wrestling. Real shame he is friends with talented performers because they are poorer for the connection. 1 point goes to him because I (like many others) enjoyed the Guerrilla Warfare match with Candice LeRae against the Young Bucks. Everything else is a cover up for lack of talent in my eyes. I never need to see this man perform terrible comedy ever again."

Cant work, annoying as hell that pretty much embodies everything that is wrong with wrestling and I wish he someday look at what hes doing and gets ashamed for it"

[5.0] "This Joey Ryan chap is very good at physical comedy, and that is good because he's unremarkable to say the least in the ring and really bad at promos. I'd probably rate him higher because he plays his character so well but 90% of the stuff I've seen of him over the last two years is completely lost on me and when you have to go on the Internet to understand a skit... it kinda says it's not your kind of thing."

Cow Man wrote on 30.04.2019:
[0.0] "An embarrassment to professional wrestling. His character is gross. Most of his matches are boring to watch. Yet, Ryan fans say his character harkens back to the Attitude Era. But I respond by saying, "How do you even get that idea? " At least in that era the wrestlers has charisma, this man probably doesn't even know the meaning of the word. How does he have 7 stars? Definitely a '0'."

Cibs wrote on 17.01.2019:
[1.0] "Joey Ryan is the perfect example of how the opinion of many smarks changes radically if something happens in the WWE or not. He is a terrible wrestler whose matches tend to be horrible and his comic act verges on deplorable levels, but nobody complains about him. Undoubtedly one of the worst exponents of today in the business."
zephyr wrote on 08.01.2019:
[3.0] "This man has turned having genitals into a gimmick. And somehow he's managed to keep this gimmick going for several years without even the smarky fans turning on him. Good for him, I suppose, because he isn't that great of a wrestler."

[0.0] "I don't get it. I really don't get it. He's not a good wrestler. Not by a long shot. He's not charismatic either. He's not funny. His whole gimmick is just dumb, like WWE dumb. He brings everything and everyone down that he's involved in or with. I suppose I should applaud him for getting some weirdos to cheer when someone grabs his junk? Top quality cringe. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with comedy wrestling. But I'm supposed to suspend my disbelief that his penis is able to throw 300lb men across the ring? Nope. Can't do it."

[4.0] "Joey Ryan is lucky to have fallen into a gimmick that has become popular, because he wasn't getting over on his ability."
Thakrien wrote on 25.08.2018:
[4.0] "Positives: For his gimmick he has the fitting look and the fitting personality. Has a wrestling style that seems to not result in many injuries. Negatives: I am not fond of his technical wrestling abilities (from moves to selling). His comedy is of course very subjective to rate, I don't like it (in my opinion uncreative and cringe). Since that part is subjective, I won't go too low in the rating - average grade."
BurnItDown wrote on 17.05.2018:
[5.0] "From the matches I've seen of him, Joey Ryan has all the charisma in the world to be entertaining as much possible in the entertainment department of the wrestling industry when he wants to be. I have no problem with comedy wrestling unless it is used right. But whenever Joey interjects comedy as he's in the ring, its a tad bit too much for me, and it tells me he knows he's not as good as he or others think him out to be. Only time I could tolerate him was when he and Candice LeRae were a tag team in PWG, and to me, Candice was always the main star of that group who did the most work. Dude has to realize at one point if he wants to be taken seriously to be in major companies like WWE or NJPW, he has to change his gimmick up. Sure he may keep getting booked for what its worth with what he's doing now, but one will grow tired of seeing Joey Ryan be in so many intergender focused matches all time as his forte."

[9.0] "Extremely fun character and very capable of putting on good matches, as his matches with Super Dragon and the 2014 series with Candice against The Young Bucks in PWG show."
hutchids wrote on 28.04.2018:
[5.0] "Man his gimmick, just come on man. He's fun but more of an entertainer than a wrestler. The gimmick makes it hard for him to be taken seriously on a major promotion like RoH, WWE, or NJPW. I don't TNA would even go for it."

[9.0] "Mal ein Edit von 8 auf 9 Punkte den inzwischen hab ich auch genug von seinen Indy Matches gesehen auch viel von PWG, dazu ist er einfach super sympathisch nur der aktuelle Vollbart den er hat ist etwas ungewohnt. Aktuell schaut er damit aus wie eine jüngere Version von Mick Foley der hat auch aktuell so einen Vollbart. Das hier ist der alte Text: Als ich Joey das erste Mal bei TNA sah, wusste ich noch nicht wie gut er ist da ich zu diesem Zeitpunkt noch nicht PWG mir angeschaut habe. Ich dachte mir nur man geht mir der auf die Nerven weil er nicht bei TNA Gutcheck durchgekommen ist und immer wieder Stunk machte und auch bei TNA Al Snow attackierte. Bei TNA haben sie ihm total falsch eingesetzt es ist gut das er wieder nach diesem Flop bei TNA in den Indy Bereich zurückkehrte. Joey ist echt ein klasse Wrestler sowohl im Tag Team Bereich in der X- Foundation, Dynasty und nun auch mit Candice als Word´s Cutest Tag Team und als Singles Wrestler vor allem bei PWG gefällt er mir super. Sein YouTube Kanal und seine Show mit Candice ist echt unterhaltsam. Ein sehr netter und lustiger Kerl. Edit: 21. 12. 2015 Also das ist doch jetzt echt Lächerlich. Joey musste seinen YouTube Kanal und alle seine Videos löschen. Wegen Urheberrechtsverletzung und Beschwerden von Dritten. Hallo YouTube er machte mit Candice Interviews da war auch Excalibur dabei als ob sein Buddy sich darüber beschweren würde und Joey musste auch seine ganzen Matches die er da hochgeladen hat entfernen. Boah macht mich das jetzt sauer. Keine Ahnung ob die Candice & Joey Show weiter geht. Edit 25. 12. 2015 Sein Kanal ist wieder auf YouTube On. War sicher ein Missverständniss mit YouTube. Dann wird die Candice & Joey Show auch bald weitergehen. Edit 18. 03. 2018 Ich bleibe bei 9 Punkte bei Joey auch wenn das mit seinen Finish Move oder wenn er das für die Comedy verwendet schon jenseits guten Geschmack ist. Hat mit Bar Wrestling auch eine nette kleine eigene Liga."

[2.0] "Ne, ne, ne, ne! Joey Ryan ist einfach Schei*e, um es mal auf gut deutsch zu sagen. Er ist im Ring schlecht, sehr schlecht sogar. Seine Comedy ist aber wirklich das schreckliche! 2 Punkte weil er mit Candice ertragbar ist."
Blood Pump wrote on 19.06.2017:
[2.0] "Ive seen two matches from this guy so perhaps its too soon for me to lambast the guy but I'm not a fan of comedy wrestling. As a matter of fact if its this kind of unsubtle stupid bullcrap I effing hate it. Granted I'm no Jim Cornette, I can look past this garbage if the man behind it makes an effort to change himself for the better (see Kenny Omega, to which I HATE his DDT comedy stuff but have to respect him for what hes done as of late), but Ryan looks perfectly content with 'suplexing' people with his cock. Joke wrestler that belongs in promotions like Chikara and DDT. Maybe I hate fun, but I do know funny when I see it and Ryans shtick isn't funny to me."

AtticusFinch wrote on 25.11.2016:
[6.0] "Joey Ryan is the kind of guy you'd love to have in your company just based on looks alone. When he had his longer hair and he'd bust out the Hawaiian shirts, he just oozed cocky and sleazy. I loved it. But whenever he spoke, it was so, so bad. As long as you keep Joey away from a mic, he's a solid hand in the ring. You could almost say his work is boring at times. When he tags with Candice LeRae, he usually steps his game up. His early work in PWG was good and as he started to develop his sleazy character, he had a lot of great moments. However, it seems like he's just kind of been content with his current character and not changing it up. But if it keeps getting him booked, I can't fault him for it."

GateKeeperSyn wrote on 17.03.2016:
[6.0] "Joey Ryan is... okay. He's not a fantastic wrestler, but he's decent. What makes up for his lack of Wow factor technically is his absolutely over-the-top personality. I wasn't a big fan when I first saw him. He was with Candice and I thought she was the star of their team. He was annoying at best. However, he's grown on me as I've seen him more. Although his character is ridiculous, somehow, it works. He's a great comedy character and that earns him a few points he would otherwise not have. I thought his new gimmick focusing on his anatomy was a bit much, but seeing it in person, and watching a bunch of tough and talented guys like Mario Bokara sell it, I almost believed it. If he works with the right people, Joey is extremely fun to watch, and that is why I am giving him as high a rating as I am."
Micha1704 wrote on 07.03.2016:
[6.0] "Meiner Meinung nach ist Joey Ryan insgesamt nur besser als "Durchschnitt". Er ist charismatisch und solide im Ring, aber das wars. Als "Comedy" Wrestler ist er super aber ernst nehmen als Champ könnte ich ihn nicht.... Was momentan natürlich auch an seinem "Dick-Move" liegt. Das beste an Joey ist das Tag Team Mit Candice welches ich sogar mit 10/10 bewertet habe... Joey allein bekommt hingegen nur die Note 3."
meatrockit83 wrote on 05.03.2016:
[3.0] "Joey Ryan just isn't a very good professional wrestler, although he's been better over the past couple of years, but still isn't crisp as a 15 year veteran should be. His gimmick is fitting, but his offense, timing, and selling leave something left to be desired."
smark calaway wrote on 14.12.2015:
[7.0] "Teaming with Candice breathed some new life into the gimmick but Joey Ryan's sleazy shtick is beginning to wear thin - the PWG crowd even chanted "please retire" earlier in the year. He's still a proficient wrestler and it's cool that he received some mainstream attention for his work in Japan recently (the obligatory shirt he put out is awful though). I like him in commentary more than I like him in the ring so it will be great to see him continue to feature on PWG commentary as his career continues to wind down."

[8.0] "A good, solid worker with a great gimmick, which he plays up to well and can work 'either way'. He is entertaining and always good at putting over his opponent, and the things he can do with a lollipop..."
DanTalksRasslin wrote on 29.05.2015:
[8.0] "Ryan comes off as a student of wrestling who appreciates all sides of it, from the athletic side to the side of performance-art. Can be very entertaining with gimmicks such as the "sleazy '70s guy, " and can get it done in the ring with technical and high-flying skill as well. Too bad things didn't work out with his run in TNA, but hopefully we haven't seen the last of him on a nationally-televised product."
Matt4Wrestling wrote on 04.05.2015:
[9.0] "Ich muss an dieser Stelle mal zugeben, dass ich kein großer Joey Ryan-Fan war und seine TNA-Jahre fand ich grauenhaft! Sie scheinen ihm allerdings gezeigt zu haben, was wichtig ist im Wrestling, er ist entschlossener geworden und bleibt nicht einfach nur der Clown, wozu er früher zu sehr geneigt hat! Wenn er noch mehr härte an den Tag legen würde, dann wäre er schier unaufhaltbar!"

[9.0] "The uncrowned King of the Indies. His time in TNA was one of the greatest disappointments in a company that's full of them. He should have been a lot bigger than he was. The guy is one of the best heels in the business today. Whatever it takes to do or say something to piss the audience off, he can do it. And he's a solid athlete as well. WWE famously passed on him (for reasons so stupid, I'm too embarrassed to type them here), so maybe Global Force Wrestling could use his talents properly-for the world to see."

His ability hasn't really been fully shown, considering that he has barely won a single match, however given the right opportunity, Ryan can outwrestle, much of the TNA locker room."

[8.0] "Im Ring ist Joey Ryan sicher nur im Mittelfeld der Indy Landschaft anzusiedeln. Hat aber durch sein Gimmick und seine .... spezielle Art dieses"gewisse Etwas" das ihn aus der Masse von Indy Talenten herauszustechen lässt. Es sorgt jedenfalls dafür, dass ich mich von Ryan, auch wenn er dabei keinen Klassiker im Ring abliefert, immer sehr gut unterhalten fühle."
Eddie wrote on 15.03.2010:
[8.0] "Joey Ryan ist absolut goldwert als Heel. Mit einer der Gründe, warum PWG so genial ist. Seine Matches beinhalten viel Old-School Elemente, die er total gut rüber bringt.

Ryklon Stephens wrote on 30.07.2009:

[8.0] "Joey Ryan ist schon ein kleines Phänomen. Von seiner Ausstrahlung her hat er sich sehr entwickelt wenn man an frühe PWG Tage denkt. Starke Phasen mit seiner Fehde gegen Super Dragon oder der PWG Title Regentschaft haben ihn gut nach vorne gebracht. Beim Lokalpublikum in Kalifornien absolut over, woanders meistens nicht so. Mittlerweile steht sein entwickelter Charakter zwar sehr im Vordergrund, trotzdem ist er mittlerweile ein sehr netter und unterhaltsamer Old School Heel."
