Trey Miguel comments on his heel turn.
Throughout his run with IMPACT, Miguel has been a babyface, and he has become a fan-favorite star. He is a two-time IMPACT Wrestling X-Division Champion. In both 2021 and 2022, he emerged victorious in a tournament to win the title. He kicked off his second reign at IMPACT Over Drive by defeating Black Taurus to win the gold. To clinch the victory, he turned heel by spraying his opponent, Black Taurus, in the face with some spray paint.
In an interview with Bill Pritchard of WrestleZone, Miguel discussed his heel turn. He noted that he has "pandered to people" for the past few years, but now he's ready to have fun at other people's expense. Miguel stated that he's going to do his own thing, and he just wants to have fun, regardless of what others feel about it.
"It’s been my favorite thing scrolling through online and seeing these reactions and seeing [people decide] if [I] am a heel or just a Rascal. I cheated to win. You know what I mean? I cheated to win. How do I explain that? I sprayed a man in the face with a thing of spray paint. Not only is that illegal to do in wrestling, but that’s toxic. My man probably had to go wash… he might be blind, I don’t give a damn. For the past three years I sat in this locker room and dressed myself like an asshole and went out there and pandered to people and all of this boring bull. I watched the comment section go from 39 comments to 22 comments to 8 comments, like no one really gave like two… I’m not gonna go into cursing on here or anything. That’s not fun to watch. I’m just ready to have fun at anyone’s expense. I’m just gonna do my own damn thing right now and if people wanna feel a certain type of way about it, that’s up to them. If they wanna like it, then that’s up to them too. I’m done caring about that kinda stuff. I just wanna have fun at my job and you know what was fun? Spraying Black Taurus in the face with some spray paint," Miguel said.
