Encyclopedia > NWA Women's Championship

The NWA Women's Championship is the National Wrestling Alliance's women's singles professional wrestling title. From 1956 to 1983, it was held primarily (and operated) by Lillian Ellison under her ring name The Fabulous Moolah, who first won the title in a tournament in 1956. In 1983, the title was sold by Ellison to the newly independent World Wrestling Federation (now World Wrestling Entertainment), where it became the WWF Women's Championship. The World Wrestling Federation recognized Moolah as the reigning champion, but did not recognize any of the title changes that had occurred since Moolah was first awarded the title. The NWA continued the title without Moolah after hers was renamed the WWF Women's Title. It is still defended in the NWA today.
