After two pay-per-views and seven shows into 2019, we've reach the first quarter mark of the year in SCW. Let’s take a look at the state of the current champions in order of longevity.

Fenris (current reign: 245+ days) has the longest title reign of anyone on the SCW roster now over 230 days. The SCW world champ stays active, is in high profile matches on TV and PPV and he has one of the most dominant runs in recent memory not seen since the likes of J2H from 2016-2017. He practically can do no wrong here. It should be interesting to see who will finally cool off Fenris's reign in the near future. Names like Austin James Mercer (who gets another crack at the champ this weekend), Alex Jones and Senor Vinnie have the talent to do just that.

Team Eggplant (current reign: 126+ days) has been one of the most impressive tandems since their debuts on the roster. While they were some eyebrows raised about Lachlan Kane and Sierra Williams getting a match against the-then champions Kain and Mercedes Vargas right off the bat instead of getting their feet wet in a few matches, those concerns have been quieted by their lengthy reign. In singles, Kane and Williams did start out on undefeated streaks for a couple of weeks before being handed their first losses on the roster so maybe they are getting used to the tough competition SCW is known for. Still, it's hard to ignore their unbeaten run in tag, now 5-0, and solid marks on their own, with records of 6-3 and 6-1 respectively. Who will be the next team to step up to Team Eggplant is anyone's guess. While Kain and Mercedes Vargas never got their rematch after losing the titles, that's now a moot point since the former left the company and Vargas is back in singles competition and rewriting the record books. Amy Santino is single and looking since Wyatt Peterson had his farewell match at High Stakes ending the Country Punkins. Same could be said for the Odd Couple as Casey Williams had his retirement match at Inception and Dani Weston, seemingly on hiatus after falling short in reclaiming the World Bombshell Championship at Blaze of Glory, isn't too far from the women's world title picture.

SCW lists four mixed tag teams on their official website, but even then that's not cutting it. Save for the odd match or two, London Underground are busy with interests outside of the company, though seeing Charlotte Elliot in SCU lately was encouraging so maybe it's not matter of if but when the band gets back together. Outside of that, there's just Heavy Metal Mania and Gamers Inc. One stable is used to help establish talent, the other has struggled since joining the roster. The Hellraisers could be an option but Jessie Salco is still chasing world title dreams not to mention, but I'll mention, she's stuck with the title ban given to her by Mark Ward (It's been seven months since Ward handed down the title ban at CC 208 on 10 July 2018) and Joshua Acquin finally won a match in seemingly forever (realistically almost ten months now).

Unless a pairing could be found through lethal lottery or an established team walks through the door, it could be awhile before Team Eggplant finally lose the mixed tag straps, and even then Kane and Lukas will eventually want to move on to singles careers. Kane is in singles action this weekend against Ben Jordan.

Sam Marlowe (current reign: 126+ days) is doing everything she possibly can to drum up interest as Bombshell Roulette Champion and her title, but as she has voiced in recent weeks it's hard to do that when everyone in the women's division is flocking to the world title picture.
This isn’t a new problem, of course. There's a long history of putting the focus on one title at the expense of another.

Marlowe has issued an open challenge but the names are slow to come. That she's got to four defenses during her reign is an achievement. She's already beaten Jessie Salco, Pandora Barrett, Amy Santino and Trinity Jones in turn. We'll see what happens during the SCW overseas tour but there's little reason to hope for the company's secondary women's singles championship to get the attention it deserves instead of being a consolation prize for Marlowe after what should have been a big moment in upsetting Evie Jordan at High Stakes to claim her record-tying third reign. Marlowe is currently on an eight-match winning streak and she is well within striking distance of breaking the singles defenses record, which she currently tied with Mercedes Vargas at five. Most thought that the individual records set by Vargas with the Bombshell Roulette Championship would untouchable after her near-six month reign ended in March 2015. It took 17 months before Kate Steele would claim the singles record in August 2016 with an 182-day reign. It took four years until Sam Marlowe claimed the records for longest combined days as champion in late November. It took three years until Marlowe topped the record for most combined defenses. It's only a matter of time before she topples the singles defenses too - one to tie, two to claim - the only record still standing four years later.

John St. Cross (current reign: 21+ days) is champion once again though your miles may vary on the unusual events that led to it. Cross has yet to be pinned or submitted and while that may be a good thing, it's only a matter of time before that changes as undefeated streaks are no longer the feats they once were. In the past eight months alone Charlotte Elliot (7/22/18), Ty West (8/2/18), Jake Raab (10/7/18), Apple Coren (11/11/18), Sierra Williams (12/16/18), Austin James Mercer (12/16/18), Lachlan Kane (12/23/18), Mackenzie Page (12/23/18), Cat Riley (1/13/19) and Pandora Barrett (1/27/19) have all suffered their first losses in SCW, either being pinned in tag, multi-person or in singles, and that's just the people who at least won their first two matches or finally saw an undefeated streak end. Fenris and Alex Jones are the only ones still standing. Tony Thorne and Daniel J Morgan and Osborne of London Underground too though you might question their legitimacy with how rare they wrestle in singles matches (Morgan) or barely at all (Thorne). West could muster only one defense during his first reign though wether that's due to the competition or not being ready for a singles run remains to be seen. That said, the title has seen better days in its seven-plus year history. After Kristopher Ryans' 168-day first run from May to October 2017, it took nine months and six different title reigns before another champion reached 100 days when Ben Jordan did that in 2018. Of all the titles in SCW past and present, the Roulette Championship (and its Bombshell counterpart) have seen the most title changes as over 32 men have claimed it in their career.

Alicia Lukas (current reign: 21+ days) is the crown jewel of the women's division as she reclaimed the title she never should have lost in the first place. Crystal Zdunich's plans of capturing her fourth World Bombshell Championship ended for naught as karma played a hand in spoiling her golden opportunity reminiscent of Into the Void III three years ago when she cost Sam Marlowe the title against Mercedes Vargas only to see her plan to capture the title backfire when Marlowe pinned Zdunich to capture her second championship in Tokyo in what was also her world title opportunity after winning the Blast From the Past Tournament in 2016. With Weston and Crystal Zdunich out of the title picture, it remains to be seen who gets their shot. Lukas, who is also in the Blast From the Past Tournament, will have no shortage of challengers, but Seleana Zdunich has first dibs for now. While she gets a second chance to make a first impression, is Lukas good enough for a lengthy reign? The title has already changed hands three times in four weeks in 2019.
