After the match, Homicide celebrated with Moxley and Kingston before Kingston cut a hometown promo, declaring that NYC is now AEW’s town. He gave a shout-out to his mother in the crowd, and praised Homicide as a mentor.
Kingston and Homicide were previously stable mates in TNA/Impact Wrestling, and have teamed together in ROH, NWA, House of Hardcore, CZW, and numerous indie promotions.
There is no word on if Homicide will be working with AEW in the future, but this was likely a special appearance as he’s been a member of the Violence Unlimited stable in ROH.
