The SCW, or South Carolina Wrestling, is the newest and most innovative independent wrestling promotion in the state of South Carolina. Formerly known as the SCBYWA, or the South Carolina BackYard Wrestling Alliance. Coming from a backyard background, the promotion is known for a different approach to the indy circuit than any other within the state. They hold 12+ events a year around South Carolina. They sanction 4 championship titles of their own as well.



In February 2008, Sean Van would create the SCBYWA. It's original intent was to create web based interaction between backyard wrestlers in South Carolina, and it did that successfully for almost 2 years. It was so successful in fact that wrestlers from other feds began to show up at other feds' events. There was enough cross promoting to decide to hold a state-wide super show. It was at this point that SCBYWA WrestleFest and the SCBYWA Heavyweight Championship were born. Fest, as its been called, featured a live band, fireworks, and a great card featuring yarders from Charleston to Spartanburg, SC and everywhere in between. WrestleFest went so well that other events began to be planned as well as other championships. At SCBYWA Blaze of Glory, the next super show, the SCBYWA Tag Team Championship and SCBYWA Internet Championship came to be. As the super shows traveled the state and the roster grew, the SCBYWA name grew as well. YouTube views were skyrocketing, starting from 300 views to over 2,000 views. Rad Hazard would extend an invitation to the SCBYWA to join the Global Backyard Wrestling Nation, that invite would be accepted. In joining the GBYWN, the SCBYWA Heavyweight Championship would then be unified with the GBYWN Mid South Atlantic Heavyweight Championship. This took the title from a state-wide title to a championship over 4 states. Also, the GBYWN World Hardcore Championship became the property of the SCBYWA. More huge events would come to be, such as, SCBYWA Chaos Theory and even WrestleFest II. A turning point came soon after when the South Carolina Athletic Commission would attempt to shut the alliance down, calling backyard wrestling "Illegal Fight Clubs." Fines and jail time were the punishment for wrestling without a license in the state of South Carolina. Sean Van made the decision to transition into independent wrestling and procure the licensing. Since the "SCAC" shut down yarding, a name change was in the works. The SCBYWA would now be known as SCW (South Carolina Wrestling) as of January 2011. Sean announced that one more SCBYWA yard show will take place before the years end entitled SCBYWA Backyard Finale. Before that show could take place, December 1, 2010, cease and desist papers served by the SCAC to Sean Van. The SCBYWA is now the legal independent promotion SCW, all lineage and history carried over to this promotion. Now, SCW is a leading force in independent wrestling in the state of South Carolina. Running out of 2 different venues, having a large fan base, selling merchandise, running a training school, and offering family friendly shows AND mature shows have skyrocketed this promotion.
