Don't get it twisted, there is only one King of New York in the world of wrestling.
Though Eddie Kingston is thriving in AEW and there have been plenty of successful wrestlers who have come from New York, Homicide stands above them all according to Kingston.
Appearing on Highspots Virtual Gimmick Table, Kingston was asked who is the top guy from New York and he has no hesitation in saying Homicide.
"Until the day Homicide is in the grave, there will be no other King of New York. Homicide will always be the King of New York because every New Yorker that has made it from my generation or the generation after me, it was because of Homicide. He mentored all of us. He may not have trained us, but he has mentored all of us. So, until the day he's in the ground, there is no other King of New York. Any match he had with Bryan Danielson or Colt Cabana in Ring of Honor. The match with him and Samoa Joe from Do or Die, you felt the shift. People actually started to see, 'Oh, Homicide is not a guy with blood and guts, he can actually go.' Anytime he and Low Ki went at it. He's a jack of all trades. It sounds like I'm kissing his ass, he's my best friend and saved my life. If you know, you know. If you don't, keep it moving," he said.
Homicide remains active on the Independent scene, making appearances for GCW and H20 Wrestling in 2021.
