Outlook - Ruckus is one of the best products that have emerged from CZW's often limited scene. At first, Ruckus was an agile fatboy with a gangster persona that made for a strong package in the edgy young promotion. As CZW grew and they began bringing in better workers who were often put against their junior heavyweight kingpin. Ruckus's fantastic highspots overshadowed his unappealing look and he showed great potential. His matches had zero psychology, little rhyme or reason and often he badly botched spot or two. Wisely, Ruckus began showing some initative by shedding his excess weight, getting work in more diverse companies and improving his ringwork. Although he is not the most charismatic guy, he has a certain aura that works well in a tag team and stable. Ruckus has potential for bigger things and hopefully he can make some advances in the next couple years.
