John DeFore (28 Jan 2019, )
New York Times
"[Merchant] has a terrific cast, pinpoint timing and a gift for visual japes and physical comedy, for arranging bodies in funny formations and for underlining everyday absurdity. Merchant also has a sense of flow."

Variety
"[I]t has enough wit, heart, energy and good cheer to make it a fun watch even for non-wrestling fans."
Dennis Harvey (29 Jan 2018, )
