BLAST FROM THE PAST 2019

- The 2019 Blast From the Past Tournament is the seventh consecutive year where 16 teams will participate
- The record for most Bombshell debuts is 9, which happened in 2014 and matched in 2016. The record for most Superstars debuts is 12, which happened in 2014 and 2015. 22 newcomers will make their Blast From the Past debuts, including 13 Superstars and 9 Bombshells. 16 newcomers (11 Superstars and 5 Bombshells) made their BFTP debuts in last year's tournament: Courtney Pierce, Fenris, Quinton Cross, Otaki, Caleb Storms, Nick Steen, Devin Tyler, O'Malley, Chris Crippler, Alana Allure, Wyatt Peterson, Brittany Williams, Konrad Raab, Jon Dough, Kira Phoenix and Equinox. Of this group, only Fenris, Storms, Tyler and Dough are still with the company. Tyler is part of the SCU brand. In 2019, only Otaki, Caleb Storms and Brittany Williams return for their second appearances. Roxi Johnson, Amy Santino, Amanda Cortez and Keira Fisher-Johnson also return from last year.
- Including this year, 143 Superstars and Bombshells have competed in the Blast From the Past Tournament in its history, including 82 Superstars and 61 Bombshells
- With Alicia Lukas winning the World Bombshell Championship at Blaze of Glory, she becomes the first World Bombshell Champion in three years to take part in the tournament. The 2015 and 2016 Tournaments are the only years the Bombshell Champion (Delia Darling in 2015, Samantha Marlowe in 2016) competed in the tournament.
- This is the third time that the Bombshell Roulette Champion will not compete in the Blast From the Past Tournament and the first time since 2016. The Bombshell Roulette Champion has appeared in 2013 (Alex Morrison), 2015 (Mercedes Vargas) 2017 (Jessie Salco) and 2018 (Sam Marlowe). Sam Marlowe is the current champion in 2019.
- The 2015 Blast From the Past was the first time stables competed in a tournament and more than one (The Mean Girls, The Player's Club, Team Super Sprinkles Unicorn Lovers United)
- For the second consecutive tournament, the Roulette Champion will not compete. Last year ended a three-year run from 2015 to 2017 (Alex Kaelin, 2015; Steve Ramone, 2016, 2017).
- This is the seventh consecutive year a current champion will be in the Blast From the Past since 2013. The most current champions to participate in one tournament is three, set in 2013 (Amanda Cortez and Laura Jackson, World Bombshell Tag Team Champions; Alexis Morrison, Bombshell Roulette Champion) and matched in 2015 (Delia Darling, World Bombshell Champion; Mercedes Vargas, Bombshell Roulette Champion; Joanne Canelli, Bombshell Internet Champion) and 2016 (Mercedes Vargas, Bombshell Internet Champion; Sam Marlowe, World Bombshell Champion; Kate Steele, Bombshell Roulette Champion). Only twice at least one current champion was in a tournament, first in 2014 (Emma Rose, World Bombshell Tag Team Champion) and again in 2018 (Sam Marlowe, Bombshell Roulette Champion).
- 10 of the 16 Bombshells in this year tournament are current or former champions in SCW while 8 of the 16 Superstars are former champions, either in SCW or SCU. The most former Bombshell and Superstar champions in one tournament are 12 and 9, respectively.
- SCW Hall of Famer Goth has the most championships on the men side with seven (tied with Rage for the most ever by a male wrestler in history and the third most all-time behind fellow Hall of Famers Mercedes Vargas' 11 and Amy Santino's 8 championships). During his career, Goth won the World Heavyweight Championship twice, the Roulette Championship three times and the Internet and World Tag Team Championships one time each. Joshua Acquin has two titles being a two-time World Tag Team Champion. Jake Raab (Honor Champion), Stewart Mason (SCU Underground Champion on two occasions), Blade Alexander (World Heavyweight Champion), Caleb Storms (Roulette Champion) and Andrew Garcia and Jamie Staggs (both World Tag Team Champions) all have one title each.
- Amy Santino has the most championships on the women's side with 8 followed by Jessie Salco with 7 (the second and third-most by titles won by a female wrestler only behind Mercedes Vargas with 11). Roxi Johnson has six championships, the fourth female wrestler (and one of only six) to reach that milestone after Vixen, Vargas and Santino (Jessie Salco and Samantha Marlowe would join the list in 2017 and 2018, respectively). Vargas reached the milestone the fastest, beating Vixen by one month (19 months/595 days to 20 months/637 days) followed by Santino (31 months/945 days) then Johnson (39 months/1190 days). Johnson is a two-time World Bombshell Champion, the first two-time Bombshell Internet Champion (Amy Santino is the other), and a World Bombshell Tag Team and Bombshell Roulette Champion, which she won in her final match at Violent Conduct in September 2016. Johnson was the youngest Bombshell to ever be inducted into the Hall of Fame until Crystal Zdunich tied that record in 2018. Keira Fisher-Johnson is a former Bombshell Roulette and World Bombshell Tag Team Champion with Roxi Johnson as Team Hero. They shattered The Fallen's previous 168-day first reign (which stood for over two years) to become the singles longest World Bombshell Tag Team Champions with a 231-day reign from October 2015 to June 2016.

FACES IN THE CROWD

- Jessie Salco is the only Bombshell to appear in every edition of the BFTP since the inaugural 2013 tournament. Joining the 2019 field will mark her seventh overall and consecutive appearance. She's advanced past the first round just twice, in 2015 and 2017, reaching the last four in 2017, her best performance to date.
- This is the first time neither Mercedes Vargas or Samantha Marlowe will compete in the tournament. For Vargas, this ends her four-year consecutive streak from 2015-2018 and from 2016-2018 for Marlowe.
- Amy Santino and Amanda Cortez will both make their overall sixth tournament appearances in seven years and their third and fifth consecutive appearances respectively. Santino had been in every tournament save for the 2016 event while Cortez appeared in 2013 and from 2015-2018. Santino was part of the last four in 2018, her best performance to date and has advanced past the first round three times, including in back-to-back years: in 2014, 2017 and 2018. Cortez reached the final in 2016.
- Roxi Johnson appears in her second consecutive BFTP since 2018 and sixth in seven years, including four years consecutively from 2013-2016. She did not participate in the 2017 tournament. Last year, the Grand Slam Champion and Hall of Famer was knocked out of the first round for the third time (2013, 2015, 2018). Her best performance was reaching the final with Gabriel in 2013. Johnson is 53-36 in 89 career matches, including 40-24 on Climax Control. The 53 wins are second-most by a female wrestler only behind Mercedes Vargas who passed Johnson's record which had stood since 2016 until Vargas earned her 54th win at CC 224 on 16 December 2018. The 40 wins are also the second-most, again only behind Vargas with 41. She passed Johnson's record which had stood since 2016 until Vargas earned her 41st win last month at CC 227 on 3 February. This will be Johnson's 90th career match in SCW becoming the fourth female wrestler to reach this milestone after Jessie Salco (CC 167, 18 December 2016) and fellow Hall of Famers Mercedes Vargas (CC 175, 2 April 2017) and Amy Santino (CC 181, 4 June 2017). Vargas is the fastest of the three beating out Salco by seven months (3 years, 10 months/46 months to 4 years, 5 months, 3 days/53 months). Santino needed 4 years, 6 months/54 months. Johnson reached this milestone at 6 years, 2 months/68 months.
- Like Roxi Johnson, this is also Keira Fisher-Johnson's second consecutive BFTP appearance and third in four years, having only missed the 2017 tournament. She's 21-17 in 38 career matches and two more will make her one of only 13 female wrestlers in SCW history to reach 40 career matches Keira Fisher-Johnson made it past the first round in both of her previous appearances in 2016 and 2018, with her best performance reaching the last four with Equinox in last year's tournament before being eliminated by eventual tournament winners Fenris and Courtney Pierce.
