Will Craddock: Your Comic Book Hero, the Welsh Wrecking Ball, Will Craddock is a world-traveled, multi-time SHTCW:a champion. Craddock moved from the small village of Pontypridd, Wales to Cardiff, Wales, then finally to Liverpool in England and spent his formative years fighting tooth and nail in back alleys. At only 16, the undersized Craddock broke into wrestling and gravitated towards the the "deathmatch" style to set himself apart from many of the catch-as-catch-can wrestlers and powerhouses on the UK independent scene. At the young age of 22, Craddock moved to Japan to take on the Japanese deathmatch scene, but very quickly adjusted his style as he was booked more and more—partially due to nagging neck problems that eventually required surgery, partially due to wear-at-tear, and mostly to due with simply gravitating towards a more traditional "strong style." By 25, Craddock transitioned to living part-time in Japan and part-time in North America, and transitioned to a strong-style inspired offense in the ring; utilizing stiff kicks and elbows that he'd learned in Liverpool and honed in Osaka. By 2017, he made SHTCW:a his home full-time, and helped establish SHTCW:a's upper card.

The leader of the Crush 'em Committee, and the majority stakes-holder in SHTCW:a, Oswald is a recent addition to the SHTCW:a roster. Oswald was tired of seeing the "wrong" people at the top of the SHTCW:a card and has taken it upon himself to right those wrongs.

No Name: Literally nothing is known about No Name. Not even his(?) name. No Name is a very recent addition to SHTCW:a, only appearing at one show, and seeming to be affiliated with CeC. No Name has spelled out clearly, though, that he is a "mercenary for hire—CeC just happens to pay the best at the moment."

Kemper Tierney: A former fan-favourite turned-not-so-fan-favourite, Kemper Tierney, Ms. GLAMROCK herself, went on a massive losing streak in her first few outings with SHTCW:a. Everything culminated at SHTCW:a's season one finale, when Tierney suffered a humiliating loss to El Gringo Fantastico. After the match, Fantastico hit her with his Rotten Piledriver and she snapped, locking in the Sickle Hold and refusing to let go. Whilst many fans cheered her on, she was eventually kicked out of the arena and suspended for several months before re-appearing with not only a new 'tude, but a new look and new moveset to go with it. The SHTCW:a faithful are torn on Kemper, but undoubtedly, with this new attitude, she is one of the most dangerous members of the SHTCW:a.

Red Dragon: Based off of the Welsh red dragon, Red Dragon was, for several years, a-rather-obvious Will Craddock donning a mask every so often before the gimmick was retired in a mask vs. hair match against Nikki Knux. Knux hesitated to lock in an arm submission after working Red Dragon's arm for much of the match, knowing who was under the mask, but eventually, Red Dragon demanded the move be locked in after he could no longer fight back. The match was called, and Red Dragon's identity revealed.
