After the conclusion of the main event at ROH 19th Anniversary, we saw the debut of a new faction. Brody King has had issues with RUSH & La Faccion Ingornable, and he’s brought some back up. Tony Deppen, Chris Dickinson & Homicide were his backup of choice, and the faction has been fittingly called Violence Unlimited.
Deppen has been around in Ring of Honor since the Pure Rules tournament, and faced Dragon Lee for the ROH TV Championship at Final Battle 2020. Chris Dickinson was making his debut, but has worked recently with New Japan Pro Wrestling which is ROH adjacent. Homicide is an ROH original, starting on their first show back in 2002, and is a former ROH World Champion. All three men would be great additions to the roster, but despite being in a major faction with Brody King, they remain unsigned at this time.
Tony Deppen, Chris Dickinson & Homicide Are Likely On By Appearance Deals
While they don’t have full time deals with ROH, we should see a lot of Tony Deppen, Chris Dickinson & Homicide in the coming months. ROH isn’t against doing by appearance deals, and this seems to be the case. They seem to be set to join the growing faction war, and Brody King isn’t known to wait patiently. He’s built an army, and they’re going to hop into the fighting.
It’d be hard to not see them start claiming gold from both LFI & The Foundation, and with that could come contracts. Deppen is perfect for the Pure Rules division, while Chris Dickinson is a potential ROH World Champion and one of the hottest names in wrestling today. Meanwhile, Homicide is iconic to Ring of Honor, and the 28 year pro has been able to keep going at a high level in matches with Game Changer Wrestling, ICW and more.
He’s been gone from ROH since 2014, quite the hiatus but he remains a big name for longtime friends. We could easily see him and RUSH go to war over the ROH World Championship, unless that right is reserved for Brody King.
