The LPW Hardcore Championship is a professional e-wrestling championship in the e-federation, Lords of Pain Wrestling (LPW). It is the third-tier of the LPW Insanity brand, previously one of two floating championships. The title is contested under hardcore rules, which means:

  • No Disqualifications: All weapons and interference are legal.
  • Falls Count Anywhere: Pinfalls and submissions do not have to take place in the ring.
  • No Holds Barred: The only job for the referee is to end the match via pinfall or submission.

The title was introduced in 2003 as the Psychotic Wrestling Alliance (PWA) Hardcore Championship. After the PWA forked following a management disagreement, the promotion was renamed Lords of Pain Wrestling (LPW) to reflect the Lords of Pain.net home that had hosted the e-federation, with the title also renamed to reflect the acronym.

The first champion was Bestest, who defeated Independent Pest in 2003. Overall, there have been 15 different champions.
