I shall be reviewing this article against the Good Article criteria, following its nomination for Good Article status.

Disambiguations: None found

Linkrot: Ref #52 [1] is dead.

Archived version used. WWE updated their website, and it seems the page was removed in the process. ♥NiciVampireHeart♥ 19:05, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Checking against GA criteria[edit]

GA review (see here for criteria)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS):
    Teaching career: much of the information about his teaching career is repeated in the following section, Early career (2000–2005)
    Removed most of it. I've left some in, in a shortened form, so it's easier to see how the two careers correspond and interlink. ♥NiciVampireHeart♥ 19:05, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
    Now we have While working full-time as a teacher in 2004, he continued to wrestle during his vacation time and weekends, and using sick days, and on December 16, 2004, Striker began a tour of Japan with Pro Wrestling Zero1, and was later invited back for an extended tour in early 2005. which is a sentence combining two different subjects. –– Jezhotwells (talk) 02:40, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
    Separated into 2 sentences. ♥NiciVampireHeart♥ 01:42, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
    ''After 12 episodes, Striker announced an end to the segment citing time issues in regards to his duties as an announcer. Could this be reworked for clarity and grammar? Green tickY
    Reworded. ♥NiciVampireHeart♥ 19:05, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
    Ref #52 is dead This has been replaced with an archived version but the statement The segment ended after 12 episodes, with Striker citing a lack of time due to his new commentary position. does not appear to be supported here. –– Jezhotwells (talk) 02:40, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
    I've removed the sentence. I can't find anything to support it on the 'net at this moment in time. ♥NiciVampireHeart♥ 01:42, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
    Personal life: Is there no information available about place of birth, college, relationships, children, etc?
    I've haven't been able to find any. He rarely does interviews, and if he does they tend to be very kayfabe and WWE-orientated. ♥NiciVampireHeart♥ 19:05, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
    Hmmmm, that is a pity. But I guess if there is nothing available, we will have to leave that. –– Jezhotwells (talk) 02:40, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars, etc.:
  6. It is illustrated by images, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
  7. Overall:
    Just a few issues as noted above. On hold for seven days.
    Comments above. –– Jezhotwells (talk) 02:40, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Since Jez hasn't edited in a while, I'll read this over tonight, and if I find no further issues I'll pass it. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 17:46, 20 June 2010 (UTC)

I see no further issues, so I'm passing the article. Wizardman Operation Big Bear 23:07, 21 June 2010 (UTC)
I'd almost forgotten about this. Thanks so much for stepping in to finish the review Wizardman. Much appreciated. ♥NiciVampireHeart♥ 00:16, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
