The deeply disturbing rivalry between Trey Miguel and Crazzy Steve will reach its boiling point this Thursday. For the first time ever, the X-Division Title will be defended in the hardcore extreme Monster’s Ball as Trey Miguel puts his title on the line. Ever since Miguel cheated to defeat Black Taurus in the finals of the X-Division Title Tournament, Steve has not let Miguel’s new attitude go unchecked. After defacing the X-Division Title, Miguel was stunned when Steve tagged himself with Miguel’s own logo. With no disqualifications and no count outs, the sadistic side of Steve will unleashed and Miguel’s X-Division Title reign is in jeopardy!
