R4GE Custom Championship the second-most important title in Pro Wrestling R4GE.
The Custom title idea was brought to Pro Wrestling R4GE by Mitchell Jones, who at the time was a member of R4GE Staff; Jones had seen the idea used in other promotions. Essentially the Custom championship allows the champion to pick whatever type of gimmick or rules the belt will be defended under during his/her reign.
The first Custom champion was decided via a Battle Royal on TNT on July 22, 2004. The final two men left in the ring at the end of the Battle Royal were KiD and Ivan Petrov with KiD gaining the victory and crowning his championship the 'R4GE C4GE' title, with the belt being defended in modified Cage matches.
KiD was defeated for the championship by Eddie T who named it the Xtreme Championship (anything goes rules) in honour of KCW stable Team Xtreme of which Eddie T and KiD were members. Eddie T vacated the belt following his winning the R4GE World Heavyweight title at Ground Zero on 24 September 2004.
The next person to hold the title was Shane Williams who held the title until R4GE's closure in November and defended it under the '30 Seconds Rule' where the challenger had to defeat the champion in 30 seconds to win the belt.
The next person to hold the belt was Jamboree who won the belt on April 20, 2006 on an episode TNT after winning a Battle Royal. Jamboree held the belt for 126 days which makes his reign the longest Custom title reign in R4GE history. Jamboree defened the belt under Primal Fear Roulette rules where someone usually Jamboree or Firestorm would spin the Primal Fear wheel which contained a list of phobias and whichever phobia was selected by spinning the wheel would dictate the stipulation of the match.
Kokane defeated Jamboree for the championship in August 2006 and defended the belt under 'Except No Imitations' rules - where a wrestler could only win by doing his/her finishing move. Kokane was defeated by Angelica Dominque who defended the belt under 'Cage Match' rules. Angelica would drop the belt to Chris West who made it the R4GE Hardcore championship. West held the belt for a mere 14 days (the shortest title reign in R4GE history) as he was defeated by Gabrielle Montgomery who upon winning the belt created the Stairway of Angels match a variation on the ladder match. Montgomery kept the belt until Breaking Point where she was defeated in a four-way match by The Avenger.
Eddie T (The Avenger) on the March 29th TNT vacated the R4GE Custom title when he was disqualifed for using a close fist (which was against the Pure Rules stipulations he had chosen to use) in a match against former champion Gabrielle Montgomery. The belt is now vacant.
