Trey Miguel Explains Why He Wants To Share The Ring With Jungle Boy

Trey Miguel has lots of respect and admiration for Jungle Boy.

Over the past year, wrestling's forbidden door has opened up, with talents from IMPACT, AEW, NJPW, Ring of Honor, and various independent promotions crossing over frequently. Speaking with Gimme A Hull Yeah!, Trey Miguel explained why Jungle Boy is on the top of his list of people he'd like to face from another company.

"Yeah, Jungle Boy is a great friend of mine and I've only had the pleasure of working with him one time and it was for PWG which is one of my three favorite independent promotions to wrestle for," Trey began by saying. "That place means so much to me and I remember the night that I wrestled Jungle Boy, he had to leave early so that he could go see his father in the hospital that night. I just remember admiring him so much because of everything he was going through and his dedication to still show up to one of the biggest indies with all that pressure on top of wanting to be there for his dad which ended up being some of his last moments, unfortunately. That was one of the most admirable things I think I've ever witnessed in wrestling. I think he deserves all of the bonuses past the people who just show up. But if I could share the ring with anyone all over again through that forbidden door, it would be him first."

The match that Trey was referring to happened on March 1, 2019. Sadly, Jungle Boy's father, Luke Perry, passed away just three days later at the age of 52.

Jungle Boy is currently feuding with The Elite on AEW programming. Miguel, on the other hand, is set to contend for the X Division Championship at Bound For Glory on October 23.
