SCW Domination Update

By | News | No Comments

SCW has become aware that Emily Desmond, who was scheduled to appear at Domination in a rematch against Paige Lewis for the SCW Alternative Championship, has tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, the match has been postponed indefinitely, until such a time that Emily Desmond has recovered and been cleared to compete.

The card has been appropriately updated and Paige Lewis will instead only be defending the SCW World Heavyweight Championship. Paige Lewis had the following to say when alerted to the situation, “That’s tough, mate. I hope Emily Desmond recovers well and quickly. And when she does, her rematch will be waiting for her. Godspeed, Emily.”

Alright, we’ve gone into the lab, took it all apart, had the mad scientist taste test it, and we’ve got it down. SCW is returning! See the dates below.

Sign up Deadline: 4/12
First Deadline: 4/22
Final Deadline: 4/24

We will also be keeping the dual deadline that we previously used. So, step one, create an account. If you previously had an account, it is still there.

Features Update

By | News | No Comments

Hello,

I wanted to make a publicly visible list of the changes I’ve been making behind the scenes. These are meant to make this site more accessible, add features, and increase usage.

 

  • Member Profiles
    • This is a feature that kind of already existed, but because of how the site was built, it wasn’t accessible. My goal is to continuing working on it, and make our profiles on this site as a sort of mini social media. Note, this is just for fun, and not part of competing here.
  • Multiple Accounts/Account Switching
    • This is a feature I already had included, but never really announced. Personally, I like having separate accounts for my characters. You are NOT required to do so. I’ve also added a feature that allows you to easily switch accounts if you’d like to use it. Again, not a requirement.
  • Formatting
    • This website currently supports plain text, html, native text editors, and BBCode. What this means is, if you can code it, you can post it. If you’d like to see you post before you post it, there is a preview function. This is also a good resource for BBCode editing.
  • Mass Email
    • I’ve added a feature that allows me to email all users at once. I promise, I won’t be abusing this. Messages will come from scwefed@gmail.com. If you also use Gmail, you may get a yellow warning banner, stating that Gmail can’t confirm the message is really from that address. And the reason is because it technically isn’t, it’s from this site. But that’s all some tech mumbo jumbo that you don’t care about, lol. It’s a safe email.
  • Site Security
    • This site used to get a LOT of spam. I mean dozens of comments a week. I had comments hidden, so you all probably didn’t see any of them. This week, I’ve spoken with our host about how to combat this. I’ve changed some settings and that should reduce/eliminate the spam. I’ve also purchased some protection (cue the APA theme music) to help other threats that may exist. I’ve also had our SSL Certificate updated, so that your computer and antivirus don’t tell you the site is unsafe!
  • Projects
    • There are a few things I’m working on currently. While they aren’t ready to unveil, I can tell you about them. To build a excitement. No but really, I do want to tell you about them. First, a ‘Champions’ page has always been in the works. It’s a project I kept starting and not finishing. Sure, I have the google sheets document that shows all of our champions and automatically calculates length, but having something on the site would be nice, too, right? I am also working on having integrated forums. You would not need to sign up for a new site or anything. I know efeds and boards go hand in hand, and have for a long time. But, SCW has almost always been a place to post promos and results and not a lot else. With this site being designed to have promos posted to the main page, as well as cards and results being posted here, there wasn’t a lot of reason to have a separate forum. But, let’s see if the integrated forum project takes off.

So, that’s pretty much it for now. Keep an eye out for more updates and changes.

SCW 2021 Update

By | News | No Comments

Life has been…interesting, the last few years.  I had originally planned to reopen SCW in 2020. But, I started working at a hospital and then the pandemic hit. And it was a major hospital. They have campuses around the world. So, when this thing hit, I had NO extra time, and I knew it would be a disservice to this federation as well as though who came here to write. So I put it off again. Now, I’m working from home and have a whole set up. And, since I’ll be sitting at my desk all day anyway, I can work on writing. That, coupled with renewed interest, I think it’s the perfect time to give this another go.

 

So, we are aiming for mid April. Please keep an eye out for more updates.

Paige Lewis’ Return

By | News | No Comments

Not many details are known about Paige Lewis’ whereabouts in the last few weeks. She departed an American airport on an international flight, and then vanished. Several weeks later, she was seen exiting Jessica Tendonin’s private jet at Heathrow. Many questions still are in the air. Where has she been? Is she mentally fit for action? She’s been limping around. Is she physically ready to compete? Are her and Jessica Tendonin suddenly best friends?

Paige Lewis Missing!

By | News | No Comments

SCW has become aware that SCW World Heavyweight Champion, Paige Lewis, is missing. Government agencies of the United States of America and England are working together to locate her. As of this time, the only information that has been confirmed is that Miss Lewis flew out of Heathrow, arrived at Teterboro, and boarded another flight two hours later. It is unclear on what business Miss Lewis was flying into America for, nor where the second flight took her. As it stands, she has been missing for over a week. SCW is making every effort to help out with the investigation and location of Paige Lewis.

It has been asked what will happen to the SCW World Heavyweight Championship. As of this time, Mr. Walker has confirmed that he will not be stripping her of the championship. More information will be revealed as it becomes available.

Jacina Suspended

By | News | No Comments

After missing her flight to appear at Overdrive 49, SCW wrestler Jacina has been suspended from Active Competition. Mr. Walker has ordered a wellness evaluation before Jacina can return to active status. As of this writing, requests for comment have gone unanswered by Jacina and her representatives.

Past Meets Present

By | News | No Comments

In a shocking turn of events, former SCW Champion, Brian Kennedy has been named the challenger for the SCW World Heavyweight Championship, currently held by Paige Lewis. Lewis and Kennedy are no strangers to each other. Lewis has bested Kennedy twice already in Singles action, taking him down shortly after losing the championship to his associate, Jessica Tendonin, and then a second time after regaining the championship. Kennedy is the first person to have held the original SCW Championship to be named a challenger for the new world title.

 

 

 

Paige Lewis arrived in SCW when the doors reopened, and in short order, she’d picked up the SCW North American Championship. An impressive feat for the hearing impaired rookie, but she then topped that accolade by defeating Drew Stevenson to become the first ever SCW World Heavyweight Champion. Lewis turned back challenges from Priest and Jacina before finally succumbing to Jessica Tendonin after an 8 month reign. Lewis would regain the championship 77 days later, making her the first two time SCW world champion, and making Tendonin the shortest reigning champion, in SCW history. At Spring Meltdown 2018, Lewis recreated her success of the previous years’ event by leaving as the World Heavyweight Champion, defeating Alzy Hawkshaw in the process.

Brian Kennedy arrived in SCW in 2012, and quickly earn himself a shot at then SCW Champion, Neela Shizeguma. Kennedy was unsuccessful in his first attempt, but when granted a rematch, he managed to take Neela down and become the second SCW Champion. His reign was halted, however, by Brian Brewster, nephew of the legendary Lynn “Wildcat” Brewster. After that, Kennedy was unfocused, and failed in his rematch, and then vanished from SCW. He would return at SCW: Reunion, taking on Jordan Post, though the match ended in a draw.

Now, these two will collide for a third time. The tally is 2-0 in Lewis’ favor. Can Brian Kennedy manage to do what only Jessica Tendonin has done, and stop Paige Lewis? Both have a lot of wind under their sails, with Kennedy coming off a victory against Jonathan Mills, and Lewis having battled and defeated Hall of Hendrickson Inductee, Fury. At TLC, these two will determine the future of the SCW World Heavyweight Championship. This battle is sure to be a showstopper. DO NOT MISS IT!

 

Single Site, Go Live

So, a history lesson.

I spoke to Star and Jordan, original owners of SCW, about reopening SCW, in late 2016, early 2017. We talked and agreed to give me full control. I successfully got us going again in February of 2017. At the time, I set a goal, that if we lasted a year without crippling issues, I’d build a fully functioned website for us to compliment our forums.

Late last year, the forum used by SCW was forced to convert to Zetaboards. We did so, and worked around things. For a while, we were getting settled with Zetaboards. I believe it was in 2017 when Zathyus was bought by Tapatalk. Now, I was not aware of this at the time. In May of this year, I became aware that conversions to Tapatalk would be happening, and they would be mandatory, and we would not have the option of when to do it. Conversions began in July.

Again, I became aware of this in May, but a timeline of conversions was not given at the time. The impression I took was that it would be quite some time. I’ve seen two feds I’ve been part of be converted in the last week, and it is not pretty, at all. I, however, have been preparing for this day, though it came sooner than I thought.

Still. SCW is ready for this conversion. Back in May, I knew we were leaving our forum. I laid out three options.

    1. 1. Edit this website to post shows, cards, and promos here.
    1. 2. Use Ben Halkum’s script software.
    1. 3. Buy InvisionPower Board/Community.

I went with the first option, as it was the most cost effective. And so, I feel we are ready. There are still a few loose ends floating about, but the main site, hereafter referred to as ‘the site,’ is ready to be used alone. This means cards, results, and promos will all be posted here. The SCW forums, located forum.scwefed.com, will no longer be used. The only real use it has right now is old shows and moves list. A project I am currently testing is getting the moves lists integrated with the profiles here on the site. After that, I will begin posting old shows. With luck, I’ll go back as far as the beginning.

So, welcome to SCW’s official site, and welcome to the future of our brand.

New Champion!

By | News | No Comments

At Survival, Paige Lewis was felled for her first defeat by none other than the Dragon, Jessica Tendonin. In the process, Lewis would also lose the coveted SCW World Heavyweight Championship. While it was initially believed that Lewis would wait and seek her rematch after the conclusion between Tendonin and Alzy Hawkshaw, at Overdrive 43, Lewis announced that when SCW went through her hometown of London, she would be activating her rematch for SCW World Heavyweight Championship in a bid to reclaim the championship.

The match was set as a Hell in a Cell by Jessica, and it was all planned out. At the O2 Arena, Lewis made her way to the ring, calm as could be. But when the cell came down and the bell sounded, the SCW audience saw a side of Lewis that they had never seen. Indeed, Lewis’ intent was made clear after only a few minutes. The challenger was looking to injure the champion. Jessica got no offense in, and lost the championship in stunning fashion, and was rushed to a local emergency room, where her condition is still being evaluated.

UPDATE: 3/23/18

Paige Lewis, who is set to take on Brian Kennedy for the second time at Overdrive 45, has been fined $10,000 by SCW Owner Terel Walker, for her actions in the match against Jessica Tendonin. The reasoning for the fine is that Lewis’ intention was purely to injure her fellow superstar, which is a violation of company codes. If Tendonin’s medical costs exceeds what the company covers, she may elect to force Lewis to pay the difference. There was also a rumor of stripping Lewis of the championship, but Mr. Walker has vehemently denied that as a fiction. More to come as it becomes available.
