Homicide Looking For "Closure As A Performer" With Final ROH Run

The former ROH World Champion returned at 19th Anniversary

After seven years away, Homicide returned to Ring Of Honor at the 19th Anniversary Show and formed Violence Unlimited with Chris Dickinson, Brody King and Tony Deppen. 

Following his return, Homicide was the guest on the ROH Strong podcast and he admitted he was surprised ROH brought him back. 

"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 realised, '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," Homicide said. 

"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."

Homicide then reflected on what he wants to achieve during his final run with the company and he noted he's after "closure as a performer."

"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," the former ROH World Champion ended.
