Earlier today, it was announced that JTG would face Trey Miguel at the GCW October event, For The Culture. For those unfamiliar, this event by Game Changer Wrestling will bring wrestlers of color together in one grand showcase. In addition to popular independent names and stars on the rise, legends in the industry will be present. Further details on how For The Culture can be viewed will be detailed below.
Most wrestling fans best know JTG for his time in World Wrestling Entertainment, where he worked on and off from the mid-2000s to 2014. With his late friend, Shad Gaspard, they formed Cryme Tyme, a mischievous, deal-making duo. Though the group failed to win gold in WWE, they succeeded in attaining popularity during their time together. This team would go on to work for various promotions, including VIP Wrestling in Texas, becoming the promotion’s longest-reigning Tag Team Champions.
The final match Cryme Tyme wrestled was this past January. The following May, Gaspard tragically passed away. JTG made his return to the independent scene, as a singles competitor, in August. At Violence X Suffering‘s No Justice, No Peace event, JTG battled Brian Cage in the opening match. JTG’s singles endeavors will continue at For The Culture. On this night, he will face an independent star that has been steadily making a name for himself.
I can’t think of a witty caption for this. But it’s finna go crazy.

Known as “The Fresh Prince of Mid-Air,” Trey Miguel’s game is high-flying offense. He boasts an incredible moveset, capable of wowing audiences around the world. Across various promotions, he’s held different titles, including the Rockstar Pro Wrestling Championship, which he won twice. He has also proven himself as a tag team wrestler, able to win the Rockstar Pro Trios Championship as well. Simply put, Miguel is a versatile aerial star.
Recently, Miguel has been making a name for himself in IMPACT Wrestling, where he’s been involved in the World Championship scene. He won a number one contendership tournament in May. This allowed him to challenge for the IMPACT World Championship, held by Eddie Edwards, later that summer. For those that would like a crash course in Miguel’s wrestling style, it’s recommended that you tune into IMPACT. His style may very well wow you as well.
