Homicide Reveals Why He Thinks WWE Never Signed Him

Homicide thinks he knows why WWE never signed him

During the 2000s indie wrestling boom, Homicide established himself as one of the most in-demand and well respected wrestlers on the circuit, with the ‘Notorious 187’ going on to influence countless pro wrestlers.

A former ROH World Champion, and mainstay of TNA’s tag division, Homicide never laced up his boots in a WWE ring despite having dreams of wrestling for the company at Madison Square Garden. During an interview with Bill Apter for SportsKeeda Wrestling, Homicide speculated that his name may have been a stumbling block in getting a WWE tryout:

"I really don't know why, but it could be the name Homicide. It’s too graphic maybe, but I tell people I got no problem changing my name," revealed Homicide.

Indeed, Homicide has even changed the name of his finisher to be more palatable to mainstream audiences, with ‘Da Cop Killa’ rebranded ‘Da Gringo Killa’ during his time in TNA.

Whilst WWE may seemingly be off the table, Homicide has made appearances for AEW, with the Indie Wrestling Hall of Famer assisting protege Eddie Kingston and Jon Moxley at Grand Slam 2021.
