The Xtreme Wrestling Alliance (XWA) Pure Championship is a technical wrestling championship defended in Xtreme Wrestling Alliance under a specific set of "Pure Rules". It is one of two secondary titles on the show, along with the Xtreme Title and regarded as one of XWA's main attractions.
- Three rope breaks, Each wrestler has three rope breaks to stop submission holds and pinfalls during the match. After a wrestler exhausts his rope breaks, submission and pin attempts under the ropes are considered legal.
- No closed-fist punches, meaning that no closed-fist punches to the face are allowed in a Pure match, only open-handed slaps or chops to the face are allowed. Punches to other parts of the body (save for low-blows) are permitted. .
- Ring out 20 count, meaning that a wrestler is subject to a twenty count by the referee if the wrestler goes to the floor. There will always be a referee in the ring and one out of the ring. This is to make sure there are no cheap ref bumps and to ensure no cheating (weapons use, low blows, etc) is possible.
- Champion loses title if DQ'ed, meaning that The Pure Championship belt will change hands in the event of a disqualification on the part of the champion. In the event of the challenger incurring a disqualification the current champion will retain his title.
The XWA Pure Championship was brought into the XWA as a contrasting title to the "hardcore" Xtreme Title. The first ever Pure Wrestling Champion was then-XWA wrestler James Harrier who was also the leader of then-XWA stable, Zenith. The title was defended under Pure rules, and participants were usually highly technical grapplers. After XWA went out of business in 2007, all the titles were vacated until the revival that took place later that year. However, the Xtreme and Pure titles were not re-activated.
