Homicide Wants Closure As A Performer Before Heading Behind The Scenes

Homicide made a surprise return to ROH at 19th Anniversary, linking up with Brody King, Chris Dickinson, and Tony Deppen as Violence Unlimited.

Homicide is a former ROH Champion and one of the most celebrated ROH stars in company history but hadn't wrestled for the promotion since 2014.

Speaking on ROH Strong, Homicide discussed his return and how he didn't think he would be back after leaving in 2014.

"I was very surprised. It was a lot of emotional things going through my head like, 'is this for real?' I got a phone call and they told me to come to the venue. They gave me the blueprint and I thought it was a regular day. Go to work, get paid, leave. In the end, that's when I realized, 'Wow, I'm really back. I can't believe it.' It really hit me after. To this day, I'm a little surprised by this great comeback. When I left ROH, I thought I was never coming back. Nothing bad political or business, I just did everything. Now that I'm older, I see myself doing more stuff with the company and making it bigger. I'm blessed to be part of this group and a new era. A lot of fans never saw my work and I raised some hell. You think Steve Austin raised hell in the WWF, I raised hell," he said.

Homicide was set to return at ROH Past vs. Present in March 2020 to face Brody King but the event got canceled due to the pandemic. Homicide said he trained hard for that match and was ready for it.

When asked about his future in ROH, Homicide said he wants closure as a performer before transitioning into a different role.

"I wanna be like the Million Dollar Man. I wanna make a lot of money. Behind the scenes, absolutely. I think I've done everything as a performer. It's in my blood. I need a closer and that's going behind the scenes, becoming a manager or a coach. What I want to do right now is perform and have my closure as a performer. After that, go behind the scenes and make people better," he said.

He noted he wanted to give people confidence to make them believe they are the best in the world.
