Impact Wrestling (2017-present)

Early beginnings (2017-2018)

Before being officially signed to Impact Wrestling, Miguel competed in a few "tryout" matches. The first being on the August 20, 2017 episode of Impact! , teaming with Jon Bolen where they lost to Ohio Versus Everything (Jake and Dave Crist). The latter being Miguel's trainer and the guy who helped break him into the company. On the September 6, 2018 episode of Impact! , Miguel made his second appearance by teaming with Zachary Wentz and Ace Austin as enhancement talents again against Ohio Versus Everything (Dave Crist, Jake Crist, and Sami Callihan) in a losing effort. [8]

The Rascalz (2018–2020)

A vignette aired promoting the debut of Rascalz on the November 15 episode of Impact!. On the November 29 episode of Impact, Miguel made his official debut alongside Dezmond Xavier and Zachary Wentz as the trio known as The Rascalz, accompanying them ringside when Xavier and Wentz competed in a tag team match against Chris Bey and Mike Sydal. [9] In mid-2019, Trey and the Rascalz began a feud against Moose, which led to all the Rascalz making their pay-per-view debut against Moose and The North in a six-man tag team match at Rebellion, which Rascalz lost. During the match, the ring names of Xavier, Miguel and Wentz were shortened to Dez, Trey and Wentz respectively.

On the November 13, 2019 episode of Impact, Trey became the number one contender for the X Division Championship by pinning Petey Williams in a six-way match, but failed to win the title from Ace Austin at Hard to Kill. [10] At Slammiversary, Trey received his first shot at the vacant Impact World Championship in the main event against Ace Austin, Eddie Edwards, Rich Swann, and the returning Eric Young. However, Eddie Edwards would go on to win the match and become the new Impact World Champion. On November 11, it was revealed that The Rascalz would soon be leaving Impact and had interest from both WWE and All Elite Wrestling. During the November 17 tapings, The Rascalz were given a "send-off" by the Impact locker room. Trey confirmed the following day that he, Dez and Wentz were in fact done appearing on Impact Wrestling.

Singles competition (2021–present)

While Dez and Wentz went on to sign with WWE, Miguel made a surprise return to Impact Wrestling on the January 26, 2021 episode of Impact, teaming with Tommy Dreamer, Rich Swann, and Willie Mack to defeat Chris Bey, Moose, Ken Shamrock, and Sami Callihan. [11] During his return match, Trey's ring name was reverted to Trey Miguel. After many various low level feuds, Miguel began a heated high level feud with Sami Callihan based on Callihan's theory that Miguel couldn't survive without Dez and Wentz. Throughout the deeply personal feud, Miguel would get tormented by Callihan in many ways including being forced to watch his trainee Sam Beale get beat down and be constantly told he "lost his passion". After weeks of back and forth attacks and mind games, the feud is set to culminate at Rebellion in a Last Man Standing match. At the event, Trey defeated Callihan in a match filled with gruesome spots.

Personal life

McBrayer was previously in a relationship with wrestling journalist Alicia Atout.
