Backstage Origins Of Homicide AEW Grand Slam Appearance

Eddie Kingston has revealed how Homicide’s appearance at AEW Rampage: Grand Slam came about.

During the September 24 episode, ‘The King of New York’ Homicide interfered in the Kingston & Jon Moxley vs Minoru Suzuki & Lance Archer Lights Out tag match.

Speaking with The New York Post, Kingston revealed that it was Moxley’s idea to feature Homicide in the bout. Opening up about the Arthur Ashe Stadium show, Kingston said:

“It was very surreal because I never thought it would happen. Having Homicide, someone I look up to and someone I still look up to for advice every day. Having him there, seeing the smile on his face just gave me this warm funny feeling in my chest which I wasn’t used to. And then also looking at Jonny and Jon singing ‘New York, New York’ with us. I had a big smile on my face. And then getting the love from the fans. Like I told you before, I’m working on it. Accepting love is very hard. Giving out love is easy.

“It was Mox’s idea because Homicide came to visit and hang out and see me. Then we were like, we got to get him on.

“He just came in to say hello and Mox was like I’m gonna go talk to Tony, we have to do something. We surprised (Homicide) and it meant a lot to him. He’s not a real emotional dude, He was very grateful.”

At Full Gear tonight, Kingston will go one-on-one with CM Punk. The former WWE Champion is currently undefeated in AEW.
