Panda (Content Creator)
(rebranded from Panda Global on 2020-12-03)

Justin "JWong" Wong (born November 15, 1985) is an American Fighting Games player currently representing Panda as a content creator.

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 competed in many other fighting game franchises such as Mortal Kombat, 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, it can be debated that he is the best American fighting game player of all time.

Justin Wong is known for his footsies-oriented style. In 2010, Justin was picked up by Evil Geniuses and became the first american fighting games player to be sponsored by an esports organization. After this, Justin signed to Echo Fox as part of a "super-team" of players including himself, Tokido, Momochi, Chocoblanka, SonicFox and Scar and stayed with the team until early 2019.

He is also currently ranked as the 24th best Street Fighter V player on the PGRSF 2016-19.
