Former TNA Wrestling star Homicide was recently interviewed by World Wrestling Insanity here are some highlights.
On his TNA departure:
“Hogan and Bischoff have got a different vision. They don’t come to TNA to destroy TNA. They came in to have a different vision. And if I’m not part of their vision, I’m out. I’m not gonna stay and I’m not gonna say job out but basically losing money and losing my fan base and things I can do good. I’m very confident I can be a major star. I’m not gonna be the next Triple H, John Cena, but I always say I will be the next Terry Funk. Meaning that when I die, people are going to remember my name.”
On the wisdom of TNA debuting a character with such a similar sounding name as Suicide:
“I think the name was stupid. Homicide. Suicide. Look at that. They match. Then people joking around saying, ‘Oh team them up and call them Genocide’ It’s stupid. I don’t know who came up with that name. I don’t know if it was Midway. I don’t know if it was TNA. I don’t know. As a wrestler, character, I liked it. It’s original. It’s different. I wish the character Suicide got a bigger push. I don’t know what happened. If it’s on delay, but to me – the name is dumb. It’s the same. It’s the same.”
On what it would mean to wrestle for the WWE and his Homicide character:
“My goal is to wrestle at Madison Square Garden. If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen. But the only ones who wrestle MSG are the ones who go to WWE. As for the name ‘Homicide’, I would love to bring that name over there but I’d rather keep it where it is, in the Indys and in the Tri-State area. I would have no problem with going to WWE and having them give me a ridiculous name like ‘Brute Force’ or something like that. It doesn’t matter. If they tell they want to keep ‘Homicide’, that would be cool. That would be cool. But I’d rather have Homicide stay in the Indys and stay at the Tri-State area because look at the Dudleys, man. They went to WWE, Vince McMahon bought their name, and now they’re Team 3D. Now I love the name Team 3D because they got the best finisher in the world and no one ever kicked out of it. So, me going to WWE with the name change might be a little bit of an issue, but, hey man, I can’t argue. I’d rather leave the name in the Tri-State area and the Indys.”
