The third show of this cycle leading up to Blaze of Glory takes place this weekend when Climax Control returns to Cox Pavilion, the home floor of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Runnin' Rebels, for the first time in 2019, the first time in two years and fourth time overall. All three previous shows happened on Climax Control, with the most recent at CC 168 in 2 January 2017. The venue hosted the second-ever show in SCW history at CC 23 October 2011. Climax Control also visited the venue in 2016 at CC 154 on 17 July.

At CC 168, in his in-ring debut, Xander Bishop defeated Alex Rush by pinfall; Aphrodite defeated Twisted Sister by disqualification due to Sister's excessive violence to win her debut; Jessie Salco and Amy Santino (then Marshall) defeated the Justice League, Belinda Warwick and Zuri Chastain, when Marshall pinned Warwick; Jeremiah Hardin defeated Dax Beckett by submission; then-World Bombshell Tag Team Champion Song defeated Sam Marlowe by submission; the Unholy Alliance, Dimitri and James Tuscini, versus then-World Tag Team Champions Jet City, Kris and Jason Halc, went to a draw via double countout; and Ryan Keys defeated Steve Ramone for the Roulette Championship in the main event in a Roulette Rules No Disqualification match, ending Ramone's second reign at 43 days.

Jessie Salco, Amy Santino, Dax Beckett and Sam Marlowe are the only surviving members from those trips that had matches (Kate Steele was scheduled for a match with Alexis Edwards but it never took place). Of the 18 wrestlers who made the previous trip to Cox Pavilion, Salco, Santino and Beckett will be action this weekend, and Steele gets a match this time. Advertised for CC 228 this weekend: both the men and women's SCU Combat Championships will be on the line as Dax Beckett and Shannon Middlebrooks prepare for their respective fourth defenses against Eric Weaver and former Hardcore Tag Team Champion Tatsu Ikeda; Trinity Jones looks to carry momentum following her win over Mercedes Lewis when she faces Pandora Barrett, who hopes to avoid a third straight loss after a 2-0 start; Newcomer Hitamashi had a successful debut against Kadar Hasheem but now faces former Honor Champion Jake Raab, hoping to avoid another setback after his title loss at Inception and a world title contender's eliminator against Austin James Mercer; Char Kwan makes her singles debut against Hall of Famer Amy Santino; Travis Levitt and Alex Jones meet for the first time ever; the Zdunich's are on opposite sides in a grudge match, with Seleana teaming up with Kate Steele and Crystal teaming with Jessie Salco; and Ty West wants back the Roulette Championship as he takes on new champion St. John Cross in the main event. Here's the eight-match card in full:

SPECIAL REFEREE: Former MMA Champion/SCW World Heavyweight Champion Fenris


This is Middlebrooks' fourth defense since defeating Dahlia Rotten at High Stakes VIII on 11 November 2018 to become inaugural champion, the Climax Control and singles debut for both Middlebrooks and Ikeda and their second meeting but first singles match. They previously met during a six-woman tag match at Underground 9 on 31 December 2018 where Middlebrooks and her New Foundation stablemates Shelby Holt and Ivory Sullivan were defeated by Tatsu Ikeda, her Kawaii Dragons teammate Winter Elemental and Denise Andrews in a Kendo Stick match in an unsuccessful challenge for the Dragons' Hardcore Tag Titles.

This will be Middlebrooks' fourth singles match. All three of those matches happened in SCU, winning all three. Middlebrooks' most recent match was her third successful defense as Combat Champion as she defeated Chanelle Martinez-Blade in a Sin City Street Fight on the Ladies Night edition of Underground at Underground 11 on 23 January. In addition to her successful defense against Martinez-Blade, Middlebrooks has also successfully defended the Combat Championship against Denise Andrews on two occasions, by forfeit at Underground 8 on 24 December and again at the aforementioned Inception pay-per-view on 13 January. Ikeda was part of a six-woman battle royal also at Underground 11, though failed to win as she was eliminated second by Kandy Kaine. The match also featured Stephanie Sullivan, Valentina, eventual winner Daniela V. Rodgers and Denise Andrews, who Rodgers elininated last to win. The loss ended Ikeda's undefeated streak in SCU, now 7-1.

Middlebrooks made her SCW debut during High Stakes where she defeated Melissa Ruin and Denise Andrews on the pre-show and main card respectively to become the first-ever Women's Combat Champion. She made her SCU debut at Underground 5 three weeks later on 5 December 2018 in a triple threat match against Queen of Apathy and Denise Andrews. Apathy pinned Andrews for the win. Middlebrooks is 2-3 in SCU.

Ikeda has yet to have a singles match in SCU, but she did have a 7-3 singles record in Honor Wrestling. Dahlia Rotten defeated her twice (on the 31 January and 22 August 2018 episodes of Honor Wrestling's Wednesday Night Showdown) and Mercedes Vargas once (in her first successful defense of the Honor Championship at the company's Fallout pay-per-view on 18 December 2017). The former and longest reigning Hardcore Tag Team Champion with Winter Elemental has been with SCU since the first-ever episode on 24 October 2018.



Including one time as tag partners, this is the third meeting but second singles match between Beckett and Weaver, Weaver's Climax Control and singles debut, Beckett's fourth defense of the Combat Championship, and a return title match from Inception on 13 January, where Beckett defeated Weaver by knockout to successfully retain the title in his third defense, his most recent match. Weaver is coming off a mixed tag win with Cindy Warren against Jerry Cann and Kandy Kaine at Underground 12 on 30 January for his first win ever in SCU. Weaver competes in only his third match in SCW, though lost in both of his appearances at the pre-shows at High Stakes (a mixed tag team loss with Cindy Warren to Blade Nation, John and Chanelle Martinez-Blade) and agsin at Inception (the aforementioned unsuccessful challenge for the Combat Championship). In SCU, Weaver is 1-3-1-1. In SCU, Beckett is 2-3-1 and is on a four-match winless streak after a 2-0 start but is 2-0 in SCW having won at High Stakes and Inception. Including his defense against Weaver at Inception, Beckett has defeated Dorian Brown in an MMA match by first round submission at Underground 3 (21 November 2018) and went to a draw with fellow Bad Boys member Tim Staggs when neither man was able to continue at Underground 8 (25 December 2018). Entering CC28, Beckett has held the Combat Championship for 91 days. If he retains Sunday, he will become the first Combat Champion to reach 100 days on 19 February.



This is Barrett's overall fifth match and fourth singles match and the second meeting but first singles match between Barrett and Jones. They shared the ring during the Bombshells Golden Briefcase Ladder match at Inception on 13 January, ultimately won by Kate Steele. At CC 226, Barrett lost her second match in a row and suffered her first singles loss in SCW as she unsuccessfully challenged Samantha Marlowe for the Bombshell Roulette Championship in a Roulette Rules Submissions Count Anywhere match while Trinity Jones submitted Mercedes Lewis to end a five-match slide overall and a three-match slide both on Climax Control (4-7-1) and in singles (3-7-1) that lasted four-month for her first win since she defeated Parand Ara at CC 216 on 30 September. Barrett is 2-2 in SCW and 2-1 in singles, having defeated Parand Ara (CC 223 on 9 December 2018 in Barrett's debut) and Jessie Salco (CC 225 on 23 December) prior to her loss to Marlowe. Jones is 4-11-1 ahead of her 17th career match.



This is the first meeting between Hitamashi and Raab, the overall second match and singles match for Hitamashi, Raab's overall tenth match in SCW and his eigth career singles match. Hitamashi won his SCW, Climax Control, and singles debut over Kadar Hasheem two weeks ago at at CC 226. Raab lost to Austin James Mercer by pinfall in a number one contender's match for the World Heavyweight Championship the same night. Raab is 4-5 in SCW and 3-4 in singles.



This is Kwan's singles debut and the first-ever singles match between these Bombshells. Kwan, one fourth of the Gamers, Inc. stable alongside Jack Stewart, Jimmy Andrews and Beverly Milsap, wrestles her fourth match here. All three of her previous matches have been in tag with Andrews, having won in her debut at Violent Conduct in 16 September and lost at CC 222 (2 December) and CC 225 (24 December) in 2018. With Mercedes Vargas idle this weekend, Santino moves ahead of her fellow Hall of Famer to claim the second most matches wrestled in SCW. This will be the 126th career match for the Punk Princess, 90th match on Climax Control, becoming the third wrestler in history after Jessie Salco and Vargas (who wrestled her 90th match last week in a singles win over Apple Coren), to reach this milestone and tying Vargas for second-most, and 52nd career singles match. This is the 16th time Santino wrestles on Climax Control in back-to-back weeks and the first time wrestling three successive shows since CC 211-213 from 5-18 August 2018, and the first time wrestling in back-to-back singles matches since wrestling seven straight in 2018 at Summer XXXtreme VI, CC 211-213, CC 215, Violent Conduct and CC 217.


This is the first meeting between Levitt and Jones, Levitt's overall fourth match and second career singles matches in SCW since his debut win over Joshua Acquin at CC 223 on 9 December and Jones' singles debut and overall second match in SCW. Levitt, 1-3, is coming off his third straight loss, most recently a Unified Roulette Championship match two weeks ago at CC 226 where St. John Cross defeated previous champion Ty West and Levitt in a Roulette Rules Triple Threat Ironman match in West's second defense ending his reign at 77 days. Levitt also lost a previous triple threat at CC 225 which Cross also won by pinning World Mixed Tag Team Champion Lachlan Kane, handing Kane his first loss in SCW and also failed to win the Golden Briefcase Ladder match, ultimately won by Senor Vinnie. Jones successfully won his SCW, pay-per-view and tag debut as he and Austin James Mercer defeated Jimmy Andrews and Jack Stewart of Gamers, Inc at Inception III on 13 January.



This is Seleana Zdunich's second-ever career tag match in SCW, her second consecutive match against Salco in three weeks and overall third meeting and the first time Seleana and Steele and Crystal and Salco are teaming up. The latter have met as opponents in their previous nine matches.

Seleana is 8-11 in SCW and earned her fourth straight win after defeating Jessie Salco at CC 226 by pinfall. The Cat has won her past three on Climax Control to improve to 6-8. This will be her fourth match since being reinstated by Mark Ward after Zdunich was fired by Christian Underwood in retaliation for slapping him. Steele defeated five other Bombshells to win the Golden Briefcase Ladder match at Inception on 13 January, which included Crystal's enforcer Mercedes Lewis, Pandora Barrett, Mercedes Vargas, Trinity Jones and Apple Coren. The Siren is 18-23-1 in what will be her 43rd career match Sunday. Steele is 9-17 on Climax Control. Salco is 37-92-2 ahead of her 132nd career match and has lost five straight since her last win over Ella Singleton at High Stakes VIII back on 11 November 2018. She's 24-67-2 on Climax Control. Crystal Zdunich defeated Cat Riley at Inception, handing The Cat her first loss in SCW in her 13th career match and snapped her undefeated streak at 259 days/8 months, 15 days. Crystal ccompetes in her 73rd career match Sunday with a 35-35-2 record.

Seleana's only other tag was with Crystal at CC 220 on 28 October 2018, where they lost to Dani Weston and Cat Riley, with Riley pinning Zdunich and her other match as Crystal's opponent was during the Ultimate X Over the Pool match at Summer XXXtreme on 22 July which Crystal won to become number one contender to and face Mikah the same night for the World Bombshell Championship, though was unsuccessful. Including one time as tag partners, this is Steele's fourth meeting with Crystal but third as opponents, and Salco's fifth meeting with Steele, including one time as tag partners, but fourth time as opponents. Crystal is 7-5-1 in tag matches; Steele is 4-6 and has lost in each of her last three in tag, with her last tag win at Summer XXXtreme V in 2016 in a tag win with Devona and Jessie Salco against Delia Darling, Mercedes Vargas and Veronica Taylor with Devona pinning Taylor; Ahead of her 40th career tag match, Salco is 18-30-1, having lost her last six (last tag win: 19 November 2017 at CC 196 with Amy Santino versus Melanie Gabrielle and Athena Gabrielle of the Angel Clan).



This will be Cross' first defense, second main event, both overall and consecutively, second career singles match, West's fourth main event, and a return match from CC 226 on 27 January where Cross ended West's title reign in his second defense at 77 days in a Roulette Rules Triple Threat Ironman match, also including Travis Levitt to win his first title match and SCW championship Additionally, West's three-match win streak ended. Entering CC 228, Cross is 3-1 in SCW and all of his wins have come on Climax Control, where he is undefeated. He defeated Anthrax to win his SCW and singles debut at CC 223 on 9 December. West is 12-8 in SCW and 9-5 on Climax Control, having previously won his last two before the title loss. This will be his fourth career main event after CC 222, CC 225 and the aforementioned CC 226. He is 2-1 in main events.
