History

Compared to the men's belts, the Women's Championship is traditionally considered to be one of the minor belts, due to the various roles women have had in modern wrestling storylines.


Because of the relative depth of the women's roster compared to the men's roster, little attention is paid to championship responsibilities compared to the men's titles: whereas virtually all of WWE's men's titles are to be defended once every 30 days or vacated in case of an injury, neither has been strictly enforced for the Women's championship. An example of this would be when Trish Stratus took a 4 month leave to recover from a herniated disc in her lower back and returned still wearing the Women's Title. Patricia Anne Stratigias[6][10] (born December 18, 1975, IPA: ), better known by her stage name Trish Stratus, is a former fitness model, retired professional wrestler and television personality from Canada. ... A spinal disc herniation, incorrectly called a slipped disc, is a medical condition affecting the spine, in which a tear in the outer, fibrous ring (annulus fibrosus) of an intervertebral disc allows the soft, central portion (nucleus pulposus) to bulge out. ...


The Women's Championship was first won by The Fabulous Moolah on September 18, 1956 after she defeated Judy Grable in a tournament final.[2] At the time, it was recognized as the NWA World Women's Championship. In 1983, Moolah, who at the time owned the rights to the Women's Championship and the Women's Tag Team Championship, sold the rights to Vince McMahon when the WWF withdrew from the NWA. It was thus recognized exclusively as the WWF Women's Championship. Because of this, WWE holds the viewpoint that The Fabulous Moolah held her title for almost 30 years, despite evidence that the Women's Championship changed hands during this span.

In the mid/late 1980s, the title would be won by Moolah twice more, along with other notable Champions such as Wendi Richter, Leilani Kai, Velvet McIntyre, Sensational Sherri and Rockin' Robin. Robin left the company in 1990 and was stripped of the title. The belt remained deactivated until 1993 when Alundra Blayze won it in a six-woman tournament. After winning it twice more, Blayze went to World Championship Wrestling, where she proceeded to dump the title in a trash can on WCW Monday Nitro in 1995.[3] Wendy Savinovich is a professional wrestler famous under the name of Wendi Richter. ...

The title was not seen again until it was reactivated in September 1998 during the feuds between Jacqueline Moore, Sable, and Luna Vachon.[3] The first woman to win the title after its reactivation was Jacqueline. As this was right in the middle of the "Attitude Era", the title was defended in non-wrestling match-ups, including evening gown matches, swimming pool matches, and bra and panties matches. Harvey Wippleman, in disguise as Hervina, became the only male to win the Women's Championship, later stating he could defeat any woman as to why he was the Women's Champion. “Jacquelyn” redirects here. ...

The Women's title was vacated again by Chyna on November of 2001. Trish Stratus then won the vacant and her first championship at Survivor Series.


At the onset of the WWE Brand Extension in 2002, the Women's Championship could be defended on both RAW and SmackDown!, as was the case with its male counterpart, the WWE Undisputed Championship. Eventually, the Women's Championship was made a RAW exclusive title. However, the title has been challenged for on rare occasions by SmackDown! competitors since that time.
