UWF Street King Championship Tournament – Semi-Final Round
Eddie Kingston vs. Homicide

Kingston attacks Homicide from behind and throws him to the floor. Homicide gets control with punches and throws Kingston into the guardrails. Back in the ring he gets in some shots before tossing Kingston right back out. Kingston moves to avoid a dive, but Homicide still catches him with a Swanton off the apron. They trade chops until Homicide pokes Kingston in the eyes. In the ring Homicide delivers two running knees in the corner. He gets two with a super Frankensteiner. He chokes Kingston on the ropes. Kingston reverses an Irish whip and catches Homicide with a couple knees to the stomach. He drops Homicide with a gourd buster. After some choking he throws chops in the corner. Homicide whips Kingston across the ring and follows in with a clothesline. Kingston responds with a gutbuster. He puts on a waistlock. Homicide turns it into a kimura. Kingston gets his foot on the ropes. He whips Homicide chest first into the turnbuckles. He puts on a bodyscissors. Homicide makes it to the ropes. He jams Kingston’s leg against the rope. Kingston follows Homicide to the floor. Homicide slams a guardrail onto him. Back in the ring they trade chops. Homicide absorbs Kingston’s chops and throws a headbutt. After some forearms, Kingston knocks him down with a boot. Homicide drop toe holds him into the corner. He lands a suplex and goes to the top rope. He nails a diving headbutt for two. He also gets two with a Rude Awakening. Kingston avoids an Ace Crusher with a Saito suplex. He hits the Backfist to the Future for two. He hits the Sliding D for two. Kingston goes to the second rope. Homicide brings him down with the Hamachan Cutter. He follows up with the Cop Killer for the pin at 10:55. This was better than I expected honestly. It had some psychology issues, like Kingston getting a guardrail thrown at him then easily getting back into the ring seconds later, and both of Kingston’s big finishers being kicked out of back to back was pretty annoying, but given the nature of UWF it’s not worth getting hung up on those issues. The wrestling was solid for the most part and they built to a satisfying finish. **½
