I picked up the comp for this project, and after watching it, Homicide rose up my rankings. I was amazed how he'd go from being a scary ass heel you thought might legit kill the babyface to the most popular babyface on the roster. He could do it all, and I expect he'll be in my top 5 or just outside.

It's on the Notorious 187 comp a few posters mentioned. It was on clearance a few weeks ago and is a helluva dvd. Think it's on the Danielson World Champ comp too.

Homicide's title win is something that'll never be replicated on the indies again. Only WWE and NJPW know how to pull that shit off now, with Zayn's chase in NXT as the best example.

Thank God for this thread as he is a complete blind spot for me in ROH and I probably would not have ranked him in accordance with how much he produced.

I went into this project expecting to have Homicide in my top 10, and thought he might sneak into my top 5. But while setting tiers, I kinda realized that, the lowest I could place him is 4, and I've since popped him up over Punk for 3. Just such a vital figure in there best run (which I tend to shorten to just 2004 to 2006), and he was a damned good hand for that entire time. So I'm probably the high vote on Homicide, and I'm cool with that.

He was a bit of a blindspot for me as my peak ROH watching came right after he left the first time. I did see much of the 2006 run which is one of the best of anyone in ROH and between COD, the Cabana feud and everything leading to the title win, he made my top ten. His returns probably did more damage to his reputation than if he had stayed away and it's really a shame that he never became a bigger star like Joe, Bryan and Punk.

If you accept that the stretch peak of ROH was 2003-2008, Homicide was the most important roster member in two of those years (2003 and 2006). It's hard to fathom now, but during that time period, Cide was undeniably a bigger presence than Punk and Danielson.
