  • Quotes

  • He isn't bad, but isn't the best.

    Striker came into WWE, and started to praise himself that he was the only school teacher to ever come into WWE. The thing is no one cares, it's not like that's anything special, but I have noticed he can wrestle on occasion, but needs a little more improvement and could be a great wrestler.
  • So sue me for this one, but I like Matt Striker.

    You are thinking that I am nuts about Matt Striker, but yeah. I like him but not as much as Lance Cade. Matt Striker is so funny and great guy for ECW. Even I know that he is a heel, but he is too handsome and nice to be a heel. Also he is funny and he makes me laugh every time I watch his videos on the offical website or reading his articals also on the offical website, too. But I say that Matt Striker is my first choice for ECW, but as my second for the best young superstars besides Lance Cade.moreless
