Trey Miguel Wants To Defend IMPACT X-Division Title Against The Best Indy Talent

Trey Miguel has big plans for his IMPACT X-Division Title reign

After capturing the X-Division Championship for the second time, Trey Miguel has big plans for his reign, revealing on the Battleground podcast that he wants to defend the gold against the best independent wrestling talent. 

"The shop is always open for business, but there is not someone I want coming into my store to buy something. Anyone can get it though. If I think about it, I look at it like this, we had a tournament filled with the best of the X-Division, the best of the X-Division won the tournament, so why go back and give an opportunity to people who couldn't get the job done?" Miguel said.

"What I would like to do is take it back like a decade and do something like when I was a fan of IMPACT. Every week, they would have faces from the independents or people who weren't signed or were signed to different companies or frequented other companies, and have them do weekly open challenges for the X-Division Championship. That's how I got familiar with a lot of people that I'm a fan of and now share the locker room with. That's something that is super cool because it's always a surprise. It gives you a reason to want to tune in. You might find your favourite indy wrestler or favourite AAA wrestler or CRASH wrestler or a face from PWG or REVOLVER, any of those places. You don't know what's going to happen and I like having that sense of, 'who is this guy, what can he do?' and it constantly changing the way the match goes every single week."

Miguel became a two-time X-Division Champion at Over Drive on November 18, defeating Black Taurus in the tournament final to win the vacant belt. He commented on his title win here.
