The National Backyard Wrestling Alliance (NBYWA) World Hardcore Championship is a backyard wrestling Hardcore Championship as recognized by the National Backyard Wrestling Alliance. It was first awarded on May 28, 2011 to Temple of Doom.


Since introducing NBYWA on January 22, 2009, Skull Jr. has wanted to award one of the federations a Hardcore Championship. Unfortunately a federation was not found for a long time. On December 2, 2010, a federation called Extremely Shitty Backyard Wrestling joined NBYWA and Skull thought that their ultra-violent hardcore style was perfect to represent NBYWA's hardcore division. After accepting the invitation to hold the title, ESBW was awarded the right to hold the NBYWA World Hardcore Championship on December 10. After ESBW held a vote to see who the contenders should be, it was determined by the fans that the match would be Temple of Doom and Ian Knoxx. On May 28, 2011, at ESBW's first event of the season, Doom defeated Knoxx to become the first champion. The title wasn't defended again until October 22, when ESBW held their "Tournament of Carnage". Ian Knoxx won the tournament and the championship by defeating Doom. However, on October 25, NBYWA learned of ESBW's intention to re-name the title the "ESBW Hardcore Championship". The belt was immediately removed from the federation and given to Total Hardcore Wrestling, with the intention of it being unified with their Hardcore Championship. It was later learned that ESBW decided to drop out of NBYWA on October 13. NBYWA didn't learn of this until later, and decided to still recognize Ian's reign as Hardcore Champion. They also apologized for any offense that might have been caused. ESBW eventually re-joined NBYWA on February 9, 2012, and were given the vacant title back as a result. On February 26, Temple of Doom revealed ESBW didn't really re-join the NBYWA. Skull messaged him saying Ian claimed they wanted back in and apologized for the misconception. ESBW was removed from the NBYWA's federation list the same day. On March 21, a deal was reached with Higher Passion Wrestling which gave them the title.
