The next pay-per-view (PPV) on the SCW calendar is the Inception event set to take place on Sun., 13 Jan, 2019 from Gold Coast Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is SCW’s 12th visit to this venue since 2013, first visit in 2019 and second time hosting Inception following the previous event in 2017 on 22 January. (The first Inception event on 11 January 2015 happened at National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, England, UK.) Overall, this will be the eighth supercard held at the Gold Coast. Including the second Inception event, other past supercards include Blaze of Glory II, Into the Void III, Violent Conduct IV, Full Circle and Into the Void VI.

This year's event features 12 matches, one-third are championship matches. The 12 matches are four less than the 2017 event had with 16 and two less than the 2015 event with 14. Including next Sunday, 42 matches overall have happened in the pay-per-view's history.

We're less than two weeks from showtime. The teams of Ben and Evie Jordan and Jon Dough and Amy Santino are the last mixed tag teams standing and the finals of the Mixed Tag Team Series next Sunday will determine who challenges Team Eggplant for the World Mixed Tag Team Championship later on in the show; Lachlan Kane and Sierra Williams will need to be confident after suffering their first losses in SCW as they look to retain their first championships in SCW awaiting two dangerous teams in Ben and Evie Jordan and Jon Dough and Amy Santino wanting their gold; We'll find out who reigns supreme as the final Honor champions in four title unification matches with the SCW singles titles; Alex Jones makes his SCW debut in tag team action; Cat Riley will look to keep her eight-month undefeated streak perfect as she goes one-on-one with Crystal Zdunich; The "Freight Train of Pain" Casey Williams wrestles his final match against Hall of Famer Gabriel in his first match in over three years; the Golden Briefcase Ladder match returns as six Superstars and six Bombshells square off with the goal of climbing the rungs and claiming the prized briefcase where inside is a guaranteed contract to challenge any champion of their respective gender anytime and anywhere up to the following year; and Seleana Zdunich takes on the returning Delia Darling in Darling's first singles match in more than four years.


44 unique performers competed on the main card at Inception last year. Of the that group, only eight return this year: Amy Santino, Evie Baang, Sam Marlowe, Jessie Salco, Joshua Acquin, Mercedes Vargas, Kate Steele, Gabriel and Crystal Zdunich. Santino, Salco, Acquin, Vargas and Zdunich all make their overall third appearances at Inception, the only active wrestlers to appear at all three events. Vargas is the only one who has never loss at the event. She's 2-0 at the supercard, winning both of her previous appearances. Santino and Acquin are both 1-1 while Salco and Zdunich are both 0-2. Other competitors returning to Inception after absences of one or more shows include Jon Dough (0-1), Delia Darling (1-0), and Blasted Monk (1-0) who all return to Inception after their last appearances in 2015.


CC 221- CC 225
25 November-23 December 2018

CC 221
• Jessie Salco competed in her 90th career match on Climax Control, becoming the first Bombshell to reach this milestone. She was defeated by Apple Coren by submission
• Amy Santino competed in her 50th career singles match, joining Mercedes Vargas (58) and Jessie Salco (50) as the only women in SCW history to reach this milestone. The Hall of Famer unsuccessfully challenged Dani Weston for the World Bombshell Championship in the main event, having been defeated by pinfall

CC 222
• Caleb Storms competed in his 25th career match. He was defeated in a triple threat match won by Austin James Mercer pinning Casey Williams
• Kate Steele competed in her 40th career match, becoming the sixth active Bombshell (Jessie Salco, Mercedes Vargas, Amy Santino, Crystal Hilton, Sam Marlowe) to reach this mark and the 12th in history. She was defeated by Cat Riley for the third time and the second time in singles by submission

CC 223
• Joshua Acquin competed in his 80th career match, becoming the eighth wrestler in SCW history to reach this mark and only the third man to do so after Despayre (93) and Casey Williams (105). Acquin was defeated by Travis Levitt by pinfall.

CC 224
• With her triple threat match win over Sierra Williams and Ella Singleton, Mercedes Vargas earned her 54th career win to become the winningest Bombshell in SCW history. The Hall of Famer surpassed the previous record of 53 wins set by Roxi Johnson in September 2016, which had stood for more than two years. Vargas' win also tied her with Johnson for most career wins by a Bombshell on Climax Control with 40. Vargas' next win on Climax Control will give her the record. The first Climax Control of 2019 happens on 27 January at CC 226.


Who has wrestled on the most consecutive pay-per-views as of November 2018?

38 unique performers competed in a match on the main card of High Stakes. Only six has an active streak of 10+ events. The record holder for most consecutive pay-per-view appearances as of 19 March 2017 is held by Despayre with 36 (between 2011 and 2016), which also is the record by a male wrestler. In the Bombshells Division, the record belongs to Mercedes Vargas. She surpassed Roxi Johnson with her 26th consecutive appearance at Blaze of Glory VI in 2016. With Inception III extending her record to 35 consecutive pay-per-view appearances (which is the longest active streak both in SCW and the Bombshells Division), Vargas can tie the record at the next SCW supercard of 2019 on 10 March and break the record at the third event on 5 May. Despayre, Vargas, Jessie Salco and Amy Marshall are the only wrestlers in SCW history to appear in 30 or more career pay-per-view matches

WOLFSLAIR (Alex Jones and Austin James Mercer) vs GAMERS INC (Jack Stewart and Jimmy Andrews)


This is Jones' SCW, pay-per-view, and Inception debut, the first time Jones and Mercer are teaming up in SCW, and the first-ever meeting between all competitors. Mercer is coming off his first defeat in SCW after losing the Honor Championship to Jake Raab in a triple threat that also included Casey Williams who Raab pinned at CC 224. This comes just two shows after Mercer fended off Williams and Caleb Storms at CC 222. Gamers, Inc. lost to Jon Dough and Amy Santino at CC 225, which eliminated them from the Mixed Tag Team Series. After tag losses to London Underground and Ben and Evie Jordan, Gamers Inc, represented by Jack Stewart and Beverly Milsap, defeated Jerry Cann and Kandy Kaine, eliminating them from the Mixed Tag Team Series to earned their first victory in two months since defeating Metal Maniacs to win their SCW and pay-per-view debut at Violent Conduct back on 16 September. Gamers, Inc. are 2-3 ahead of their sixth match and second on pay-per-view.

Jones is an alum of Honor Wrestling and had two separate runs in the company, with his first lasting just under three months from 20 July to 19 October 2016, and his second from 20 August 2017 until Honor's last event at Zero Hour on 13 October 2018. He was Honor Champion during his first run in 2016 before the company briefly closed. Upon returning in late August 2017, Jones won the Honor Championship two months later at Honor Wrestling's WrestleBowl II pay-per-view on 15 October 2017 in a ladder match that unified the old and new versions of the title to become the undisputed champion and held the title for a record-breaking 202 days and five defenses, making him the longest reigning and most defending Honor Wrestling Honor Champion in history. Jones' 202-day singles reign is tied with Mercedes Vargas (who won the Honor Women's Championship also at WrestleBowl II) for the second-longest combined reign in Honor after Alicia Lukas' 380-day Legacy Championship reign and both his singles reign and defenses still stand as the record three months since his reign ended. Mickey Carroll lost the title in his first defense to Austin James Mercer after 190 days/6-plus months at High Stakes VIII on 11 November 2018 and Mercer lost the championship also in his first defense to Jake Raab at CC 224 after 35 days/5 weeks for the third-shortest reign in the title's history. Jones competed in nearly 30 matches in during his Honor tenure, only losing six times for a 23-6-0 record for the third best win-loss record and win percentage (.792) in the company (behind Mercedes Vargas at 24-5-1 (.816) and Alicia Lukas' 26-5-0 (.838) mark). He is one of only three wrestlers in history to reach 20-plus wins (again alongside Lukas and Vargas). Jones left the promotion with a 4-2 pay-per-view record, a perfect 8-0 in tag matches and the second-best singles record at 15-5 (Lukas was best at 13-1-1 while Vargas rounded out the trio with a 10-2-0 record.). Mercer, also a Honor alum and the final Mayhem Survival match winner, will compete in just his fourth SCW match. As mentioned, he won his SCW and pay-per-view debut at High Stakes ending Mickey Carroll's reign and won a non-title triple threat against Caleb Storms and Casey Williams at CC 222 on 9 December before losing his first match in SCW two weeks later at CC 224 in another triple threat, this time with the title on the line as Raab pinned Williams.



This is the third consecutive match at Inception for Santino after 2015 and 2017. Should she advance, she will also be in her third title match in a row following her win last year over Veronica Taylor to win her second Bombshell Roulette Championship and her and Jessie Salco's losing the World Bombshell Tag Team Championship in a fatal four-way that also included The Fallen, the Freakettes and the team of Crystal Hilton and Jade Cortez. Dough lost his Inception debut in 2015 in a six-man tag with Steve Ramone and Connor Murphy as the New Xtremes lost to J2H, Gianni Di Luca and Mr. JN Ringo of Power Play. Evie Jordan teamed up with Odette Stevens to spoil the in-ring return of The Fallen in 2017.

This will be the third time Santino and Dough are teaming up, having defeated the team of Jerry Cann and Kandy Kaine (CC 223, 9 December 2018) and Gamers Inc (CC 225, 23 December) during the Mixed Tag Team Series and the fourth time Evie and Ben will team up winning in each of their previous three matches. The Jordans qualified for the Mixed Tag Team Series playoffs with wins over Gamers Inc (CC 222, 2 December 2018) and London Underground (CC 224, 16 December). Santino is 7-10 overall in mixed tag while Evie's is 10-1. Evie's next win will have her join Mercedes Vargas (2015), Amy Santino (2017), Jessie Salco (2017), Crystal Zdunich (2018) and Sam Marlowe (2018) as only active woman on the roster and the ninth in history to reach 30 wins in a career. Mikah, Raynin and Misty are other notable names who reached this milestone. Ahead of her 37th career match, the Bombshell Triple Crown winner and former Bombshell Roulette and World Champion is 29-6-1, including 12-2 in 2018, where her only losses were to Courtney Pierce and Fenris in the BFTP final at Into the Void VIII back on 27 May (also her first career loss in tag) and to Sam Marlowe at High Stakes VIII on 11 November, where she lost the Bombshell Roulette Championship in a Roulette Rules Ladder match, which ended Evie's 112-day reign. Ben Jordan only lost twice in twelve matches last year to finish 8-2-2 and won his fourth SCW championship (to go along with three World Tag Team Championship reigns) and first-ever singles championship when he captured the Roulette Championship at Summer XXXtreme on his way to a 112-day reign.

Santino is 47-74-2 ahead of her 124th career match, tied with Mercedes Vargas for the second-most career matches in SCW, only behind Jessie Salco, who competes in her 130th at the supercard. This will be Santino's overall 36th career pay-per-view (14-21) where she has lost in each of her previous two (last PPV win happened at Summer XXXtreme on 22 July 2018), also title matches in unsuccessful challenges for the Bombshell Roulette (lost to champion Evie Baang by pinfall in a Roulette Rules Fans Bring the Weapons match at Violent Conduct V, 16 September) and World Bombshell championships (lost to champion Danielle Weston in a triple threat that also included Apple Coren who Weston pinned). Santino appears in her 16th consecutive match at pay-per-view, the fourth-longest active pay-per-view streak in SCW behind Crystal Zdunich (18 straight including the supercard), Jessie Salco (29 straight including the supercard) and career-leader Mercedes Vargas, 35 straight including the supercard).



This is Marlowe's second match at Inception. She lost her 2017 debut to Chelsea Payne in a First Blood match. Salco appears in her third match at Inception and third consecutive title match, having lost in both of her previous title matches in 2015 (losing the World Bombshell Tag Team Championship with Amy Santino in a fatal four-way) and 2017 (unsuccessfully challenging for the World Bombshell Championship also in a fatal four-way where she also was pinned in the match).

Including their pair of tag victories as partners in 2015 at CC 135 and CC 153 on 3 January and 10 July respectively, this will be the tenth meeting but eighth as opponents for Marlowe and Salco. With her win in their most recent meeting at CC 223 on 9 December, Marlowe extended her undefeated streak against Salco to 5-0-2 (W-L-D). She's 3-0 against Salco in singles (CC 125 on 13 September 2015, CC 185 on 23 July 2017, and most recently at CC 202 on 29 April 2018), and 1-0 in triple threats (Marlowe ended Salco's second Bombshell Roulette Championship reign at Summer XXXtreme on 9 July 2017). The only no decisions were the Chamber of Fate match for the World Bombshell Championship at Summer XXXtreme on 31 July 2016 that saw the pair make the final three with eventual winner and then-champion Crystal Hilton, who lastly eliminated Marlowe by technical submission, and a triple threat at CC 167 on 18 December 2016 that saw Mikah pin Salco. Salco suffered her third loss in a row since her most recent win at High Stakes on 11 November 2018. She had since lost to Apple Coren by submission (CC 221, 25 November), Sam Marlowe and Danielle Weston in a main-event tag with Alicia Lukas when Salco was pinned by Weston (CC 223, 9 December), and Pandora Barrett by pinfall (CC 225, 23 December). The reigning Honor Legacy Champion will be 183 days into her title reign ahead of her fifth defense against Sam Marlowe at Inception on 13 January 2019. Salco is 37-90-2 for her career and Sunday marks her 129th career match (most matches ever in SCW history, ahead of Mercedes Vargas and Amy Santino), 53rd career singles (18-33-1), and 38th career pay-per-view (most ever in SCW history, surpassing Despayre's 37 from 2011 - 2016 and one night only match at Full Circle in February 2018 and ahead of Amy Santino by one and Mercedes Vargas by three contests in the Bombshells Division), including 29 consecutive pay-per-view events since Chaos in Cape Town in May 2014 (Second-longest active streak behind Mercedes Vargas' 35)



This is the first meeting between Zdunich and Darling, Zdunich's debut match at Inception and Darling's second appearance but first since 2015 when she successfully defended the World Bombshell Championship against Necra Octavian Kane in her fourth defense. Zdunich (6-11) competes in her second match since being reinstated by Mark Ward after Zdunich slapped Christian Underwood, who fired her. She is coming off a handicap win against Iron Maiden and Twisted Sister of the Metal Maniacs at CC 224 on 16 December. Zdunich is 1-3 on pay-per-view and 5-7 in 13 career singles matches, including 1-2 in pay-per-view singles. Her most recent singles on pay-per-view was a disqualification loss to Cat Riley at High Stakes VIII back on 11 November when Kate Steele interfered and attacked Riley. Zdunich's other loss was to Mercedes Vargas (Into the Void). She defeated Trinity Jones (Violent Conduct).

This is Darling's first match since her one-night only appearance at CC 200 on 17 December 2017 where she was on the losing side of a eight-woman elimination tag team match. Her last singles match came in May 2015 in a pinfall win over Amanda Cortez at CC 115 on 24 May. Darling wrestled as a full-time star with SCW for 18 months from her CC 75 debut on 23 February 2014 until she was released from the company in August 2015 following Summer XXXtreme III on 23 August after she and Mercedes Vargas unsuccessfully challenged The Fallen (Raynin and Gothika) to reclaim the World Bombshell Tag Team Titles. Following her release, Darling turned to acting and professional football, which she still maintains. A former World Bombshell Champion and World Bombshell Tag Team Champion with Vargas, Darling was most memorable for being a part of the Mean Girls, becoming the defacto leader all throughout its second stint from January 2014 - May 2015. Mean Girls reached its highest success when the tag team turned stable walked out with every female championship in the company at Violent Conduct II in September 2014, becoming the only female group in history to walk out with every sanctioned title in SCW (capturing the Bombshell, Roulette and Tag Team titles). Darling, Vargas, Liz Smalls and Veronica Taylor dominated the Bombshells division for the rest of 2014 and the first quarter of 2015 (though Smalls left shortly after her reign with Taylor; Amanda Cortez joined the group in December 2014 and became Taylor's partner after her reign with Joanne Canelli ended and they won the titles in February 2015). In 26 career matches, Darling is 17-7-1-1. Ahead of her 11th career singles match, Darling is 7-1-1-1 (W-L-D-NC). That lone defeat happened at Blaze of Glory IV on 8 March 2015 as Amy Santino (then known as Amy Marshall) not only handed Darling the first loss of her SCW career to end her 378-day undefeated streak, which is today the seventh-longest singles unpinned streak and fifth longest overall in SCW history, but also ended Darling's 175-day World Bombshell Championship reign, the fourth-longest singles and combined reign in the title's seven-year history. Only Mikah (266, 210) and Crystal Zdunich (217, 1st reign) held it longer. Mikah, Zdunich, and Misty's three reigns combined for 574, 287, and 224 days respectively.



This is the second-ever Superstars Golden Briefcase Ladder match. Jon Dough won the inaugural match at Summer XXXtreme V on 9 July 2017 and successfully cashed in the briefcase 9 months later at CC 203 on 29 April 2018 to win the then-vacant Roulette Championship during a six-man ladder match for the title.

This is the Inception debut for Caleb Storms and Vinnie, the SCW and Inception debuts for Cross, Levitt and McGoo, and the third consecutive appearance at Inception for Acquin following 2015 and 2017. In 2015, he participated in an seven-man Ultimate X gauntlet match to crown the first Internet Champion won by Bruce Evans and defeated Jeffrey Blight by pinfall in 2017. For Cross, Levitt and McGoo this is their first meetings against Storms and Vinnie, Cross's first meeting against Acquin, and Cross and Levitt's first with McGoo. Storms, Vinnie, Levitt and McGoo all own wins over Acquin at CC 207, CC 217 (Vinnie's debut), CC 223 (Levitt's debut) and CC 225 (McGoo's debut) respectively. Vinnie owns a singles victory over Storms (CC 219). Cross shared the ring with Levitt and World Mixed Tag Team Champion Lachlan Kane in a triple threat at CC 225 on 23 December that Cross won by pinning Kane, handing him his first SCW loss in his fourth match and Levitt's in his second match.



This is the Inception debut for West, the second appearance at Inception for Monk after defeating Lord Raab in 2015 and the second meeting between West and Monk since High Stakes VIII where both won their respective championships in the eight-man Warrior's Brawl, which also included then-champion Ben Jordan, whose Roulette reign ended at 112 days, and Shinjiro Yamamoto, whose second Legacy reign end at 28 days. Monk went on to pin Yamamoto during the match to win his third Honor championship (to go along with two Honor Hardcore Tag Team title reigns) while West won the match and his first SCW championship, lastly eliminating Casey Williams by submission. Both men will be 63 days as champion by Inception and also defend their titles for the second time, with Monk defeating Kadar Hasheem at CC 222 on 2 December to retain the Legacy and West successfully defending the Roulette Championship two weeks later against Jon Dough at CC 224 on 16 December. West has won three in a row and is 11-7 in SCW ahead of his 19th match, sixth on pay-per-view where's he's 2-3 in his previous five, 14th singles with an 8-5 record, and seventh title match, having won two straight after dropping his first four. Monk is 1-1 ahead of his third match, following High Stakes and CC 222.



This is only the second-ever Bombshells Golden Briefcase Ladder match in SCW history. Mikah won the inaugural match at Blaze of Glory V in April 2016 but vacated the briefcase two months after winning it at the 150th Climax Control on 19 June that same year.

This is the first meeting between Lewis, Barrett, Jones, Steele and Coren. Vargas holds a combined 17-8-2 record against Lewis (6-1-2), Barrett (0-1), Jones (1-0) and Steele (10-6, 3-3 in SCW) in her career, with Sunday being her first time facing Lewis, Barrett and Coren in SCW. This is the SCW pay-per-view and Inception debut for Lewis, Barrett, and Coren and the Inception debut for Jones. Steele unsuccessfully challenged then-Bombshell Internet Champion Polly Playtime in her Inception debut in 2017 while Vargas defeated Traci Patterson in 2015 to retain the Bombshell Roulette Championship in a Roulette Rules Last Bombshell Standing match and Celeste North in 2017 in a lumberjill match.

Lewis lost her SCW debut in the co-main of CC 225 during a tag match with Crystal Zdunich against the undefeated Cat Riley and Bombshell Roulette Champion Sam Marlowe, who submitted Lewis to win for her team; Barrett improved to 2-0 following her singles win over Honor Legacy Champion Jessie Salco the same night in a non-title and Vargas passed Hall of Famer Roxi Johnson (53) for most career wins by a Bombshell in SCW history for win No. 54 when she handed Sierra Williams her first SCW loss in a triple threat that also included Ella Singleton at CC 224 on 16 December. Jones' most recent match happened at CC 221 on 25 November, where she lost to Seleana Zdunich for the second time in 2018 following her in-ring return at Violent Conduct V on 16 September. Coren defeated Jessie Salco also at CC 221. Steele lost a mixed tag team match with Todd Williams against London Underground during the Mixed Tag Team Series at CC 223 on 9 December.

Vargas is 14-20 at pay-per-view ahead of her 35th career match, which also extends her record for consecutive pay-per-view appearances since June 2013 (the longest active streak in SCW and the Bombshells division). She is one supercard away and two from breaking Despayre's record of 36 straight from November 2011 to March 2017. The next two pay-per-view events are on 10 March and 5 May 2019. The SCW Hall of Famer can keep adding to the record books by also becoming the all-time winningest Bombshell on pay-per-view with a win coupled with a loss by Amy Santino. Vargas is 0-2 in multi-person matches, including the Chamber of Fate match at Summer XXXtreme in 2016 and the Miss SCW Reverse Steel Cage Battle Royal at Full Circle in 2018. She is 4-2 in the first match of a new year and 5-1 in the first pay-per-view match of a new year, including five years consecutively from her debut in June 2013 to 2017. She is 2-1 in pay-per-views in the month of January and 5-6 overall. Inception is one of two pay-per-views where Vargas is unbeaten (My Bloody Valentine is the other, also 2-0)

Jones is 0-3 at pay-per-view ahead of her fourth career pay-per-view and Inception will be her third multi-person match and second career ladder match. She was unsuccessful in winning a ladder match in the second-ever Queen for a Day match at High Stakes in 2017. "The Dragon" was unsuccessful at High Stakes again in 2018 when she and Winter were pinned by Brittany Williams and Honor Champion Alicia Lukas respectively in a fatal four-way for the title. The championship stayed with Lukas because a title cannot change hands as a result of a draw. Inception marks Steele's eighth match overall since her in-ring return on 12 August at CC 212, defeating Amy Santino by submission. However, it's her only win to date, having lost in each of her previous six.
Including the aforementioned mixed tag team loss with Todd Williams against Daniel J Morgan and Charlotte Elliot of London Underground during the Mixed Tag Team Series (CC 223 on 9 December), "The Siren" has also lost to Cat Riley three times (in singles at Violent Conduct V on 16 September, in tag with Jessie Salco against Riley and Mercedes Vargas two weeks later in the main event of CC 216 on 30 September, and again in singles at CC 222 on 2 December), unsuccessfully challenged Dani Weston for the World Bombshell Championship (CC 218 on 14 October) and a singles loss to Crystal Zdunich (High Stakes, 11 November). Steele is 8-6 in pay-per-view matches, having lost her past three, and 1-5 all-time in multi-person matches. This will be her 42nd career match in SCW where she is 17-23-1.



This is Riley's Inception debut and third overall for Zdunich who competes in her first non-championship match. In 2015, she teamed up with Jade Cortez in a fatal four-way for the World Bombshell Tag Team Championship against champions Metal and Punk Connection (Jessie Salco and Amy Marshall), eventual winners The Fallen (Raynin and Gothika) and The Freakettes (Felony Fontana and Rock Rose) when Raynin pinned Fontana to win the title; then lost the World Bombshell Championship in 2017 in a fatal four-way against Melody Grace, Mikah and Jessie Salco when Grace pinned Salco to win her first and only world title in SCW and ended Zdunich's eight-month plus first reign at 217 days, the second-longest singles reign in history.

This is the second meeting in three weeks between Zdunich and Riley. Zdunich is coming off a tag team loss with Mercedes Lewis against Riley and Sam Marlowe at the go-home show to Inception at CC 225 on 23 December when Marlowe submitted Lewis, spoiling her debut. Riley is undefeated in SCW with a 11-0 record, including 3-0 on PPV. Nine of those wins have been in singles where's she's also unbeaten. "The Cardiac" has yet to be pinned or submitted for well over 8 months since her in-ring debut at CC 203 on 29 April. Zdunich, the latest inductee to the SCW Hall of Fame alongside fellow Bombshell Mercedes Vargas and Simon Jones, is 34-35-2 ahead of her 72nd career match, 24th on pay-per-view, where's she's 12-10-1, and 18th consecutive pay-per-view match since My Bloody Valentine II in February 2016 (third-longest streak behind Mercedes Vargas' 35 straight and Jessie Salco's 29 straight). Zdunich is 21-18-1 in singles competition. Her most recent singles pay-per-view was at High Stakes on 11 November 2018, defeating Kate Steele by submission.



Kane and Williams both suffered their first losses in SCW in their fourth matches. In back-to-back weeks, Mercedes Vargas submitted Williams at CC 224 while Travis Levitt pinned Kane the following week at the go-home show. This is their Inception debuts and second pay-per-view match, third time teaming up and their first defense of the World Mixed Tag Team Championship since defeating previous champions Kain and Mercedes Vargas at High Stakes VIII on 11 November when Kane pinned Kain for the second time in three weeks. Team Eggplant will become the new longest reigning singles champions surpassing Kain and Vargas' 56-day second reign on 7 January, six days before the supercard.



This is the Inception debut for Williams. Gabriel makes his second consecutive appearance after 2017 where he successfully retained the World Heavyweight Championship against Sean Jackson and Drake Green in a triple threat

Gabriel's last match happened at CC 117 on 7 June 2015 when he lost the World Heavyweight Championship to Sean Jackson who cashed in his King of the Hill briefcase to end Gabriel's second reign at 147 days moments after Gabriel defended the title against Kain which ended in a loss by disqualification due to Jackson's interference. In 2015, the former two-time World Heavyweight and one-time World Tag Team Champion became the fifth SCW Hall of Famer to be inducted and the third man to do so. Gabriel won a gauntlet match to become the first-ever World Heavyweight Champion in 2011 and captured the title for the second time three years later in 2014. His tag title reign with Despayre lasted for a groundbreaking 231 days, which still stands as the singles longest tag reign seven years since their reign ended in December 2012. He also is a three-time SCW Award Winner, having won the 2012 Couple of the Year with Odette Stevens (then known as Odette Ryder) and Tag Team of the Year with Despayre and the 2014 Most Hated of the Year.

This is Williams' third and final farewell match, the sixth meeting between Williams and Gabriel and first in six years and their first-ever one-on-one encounter. Williams has never beaten in Gabriel in any of their previous five matches, all tag matches. They have shared the ring three times at pay-per-view events. This will be their fourth such match, having also met at High Stakes in 2011 and London Brawling and Violent Conduct in 2012. Their most recent meetings both happened in 2013 at CC 47 (7 April) and CC 52 (2 June) in six-man tag matches. Ahead of his 106th career match, "The Freight Train of Pain" is seeking his first win since defeating Anthrax at CC 216 on 30 September. He's dropped his final four matches to end 2018 with a 7-10-1 record, though he was tied for the second-most matches wrestled (18), wrestled in double-digit matches for the fifth time in eight years and matched his career-high win total from 2012 when he went 7-15. His previous best was 5 (5-15 in 2016). Williams is 6-24 on pay-per-view, though he has won in each of his past two singles pay-per-view matches with a 3-9 mark. He's 18-37-1 in singles in his career. Williams is 30-74-1 for his career. His previous farewell matches were a victory against Max Burke at Full Circle in January 2018 and a lost to Simon Jones at My Bloody Valentine in February 2014 in a Contendership versus Career match.

CLASH OF CHAMPIONS UNIFICATION MATCH: FENRIS (SCW World Heavyweight Champion) © vs JAKE RAAB (Honor Champion) ©


This is Fenris's Inception debut, Raab's SCW pay-per-view and Inception debut and the second meeting between Fenris and Raab since their most recent meeting at CC 222 on 2 December, a Fenris main event tag team win with Ty West against Raab and Senor Vinnie that saw Raab pinned by West. Fenris is 7-0 in title matches. In 16 career matches he is 15-0-1 in SCW and 10-0 in singles, including 4-0 on pay-per-view. In the final weeks of December, Fenris passed Gabriel (147 days) and Nick Jones (154 days) to move into a tie with Kristopher Ryans for the second-longest singles reign at what will be 175 days at the supercard. This will be Fenris' seventh defense as World Heavyweight Champion since winning the vacant title at Summer XXXtreme on 22 July. In addition to his two successful defenses against Vinnie at High Stakes and CC 225, Fenris has successfully retained against Dimitri by pinfall at CC 213 (19 August), Casey Williams by pinfall at CC 215 (2 September), Kristopher Ryans by pinfall at Violent Conduct V (16 September) and Joshua Acquin by submission in a Lion's Den match at CC 219 (21 October). Raab ended a two-match slide to improve to 4-3 following his Honor Championship title victory at CC 224 on 16 December by pinning Casey Williams in a triple threat that also included then-champion Austin James Mercer in his first defense, ending Mercer's reign at 35 days/5 weeks, the third-shortest reign ever for a title holder in the title's history and his first loss in his third SCW match. This is Raab's sixth singles match in seven matches, including in his first five SCW matches alone. He's won 3 of 5 (3-2), with wins over Joshua Aquin (CC 214, 26 August), Dmitri (Violent Conduct V, 16 September) and Casey Williams (CC 219, 21 October) paired with losses to Todd Williams (CC 217, 7 October) and Lachlan Kane (CC 221, 25 November).



This is the Inception debut for both competitors.

This will be Weston's fourth defense with the World Bombshell Championship since winning the title from Mikah at Violent Conduct V on 16 September, ending her third reign at 98 days. Weston has successfully defended the title against Kate Steele by pinfall at CC 217 (7 October 2018), Apple Coren and Amy Santino in a triple threat by pinfall on Coren at High Stakes VIII (11 November 2018) and Amy Santino by pinfall at CC 221 (25 November 2018). Weston became the seventh Bombshell to have a 100-day reign with the title on Christmas Day. She joins Misty, Roxi Johnson, Gothika, Delia Darling, Mikah (the only woman to accomplish this twice) and Crystal Hilton. She will be 119 days in by the supercard, having already surpassed Hall of Famers Misty and Roxi Johnson's 112-day first reigns for the sixth-longest singles reign of all-time and surpassed Samantha Marlowe's 105 combined two reigns for seventh-longest combined reign. For Lukas, this will be her fourth defense of the Honor Championship since ending previous champion Mercedes Vargas' six-plus month title reign at 202 days at Honor Wrestling's Turmoil pay-per-view on 5 May 2018 in a triple threat, though Vargas was not pinned in the decision. Lukas' first two defenses happened in Honor Wrestling, having defeated Winter (4-2 in a 30-Minute Ironwoman Steel Cage match at Supernova on 14 July 2018) and Delia Darling (by pinfall at Zero Hour on 13 October). She retained at High Stakes on 11 November in a fatal four-way that saw both Lukas and Brittany Williams win, pinning Winter and Trinity Jones simultaneously, though Lukas' reign was kept intact because a title cannot change hands in the event of a draw. Lukas has since surpassed Vargas' 202-day title reign on 23 November. She begins the eighth month of her reign on 5 January 2019 and will be 253 days as champion by the supercard. Lukas is 9-0-1 (W-L-D) in title matches (including seven defenses while Honor Legacy Champion during a 380-day reign from 1 May 2017 to 16 May 2018). She is one from tying and two from breaking Vargas' defenses record (5), which remains the most by a champion and still stands going on almost nine months. After 0-5 start, Weston has reeled off nine straight wins (9-5), four straight title wins after dropping her first two (4-2), and six straight in singles after dropping her first three singles contest (6-3) ahead of her tenth singles match. Weston is 2-1 on pay-per-view


As of High Stakes VIII on 11 November, there has been 18 title changes in 2018. The record for most title changes in a single year is 36 set in 201. Including next Sunday, 13 title matches have taken place at Inception. In all, five title changes have happened at Inception with at least three title changes in 2015.
