Justin "JWong" Wong (born November 15, 1985) is an American Fighting Games player.

Information[edit]

He is a nine-time EVO champion, having won Marvel vs. Capcom 2 in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, Street Fighter III: Third Strike 2v2 Teams in 2009 and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 in 2014. Although very briefly, Justin Wong has also left his mark in other fighting game franchises such as Dead or Alive, Mortal Kombat, Guilty Gear, Pokken, Killer Instinct, King of Fighters, Tekken, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, Skullgirls and SoulCalibur. Due to his early dominance and eventual longevity in competitive fighting games, Justin is generally regarded as one of the greatest fighting game players of all time, and often referred to as the best American fighting game player of all time.

Justin Wong is known for his patient and footsies-oriented style, never being bothered by people who tend to call his play "lame". For the most part, he has always trusted defensive prowess over offense, as he usually looks to prey on his opponents’ flaws instead of making them react to what he does. In 2010, Justin was picked up by Evil Geniuses and became the first american fighting games player to be sponsored by an esports organization.
