A Brief History of Belts

Part Two: Battle of the Sexes

 

In part one we talked about the most recognizable belts in the wrestling profession.

Now, we are going into murkier waters, talking about the Championships that these same companies have for the Women’s division’s.

 

 

WWE Women’s Championship

Here comes some murky waters. The Women’s Championship was, in fact created in 1956, but, wasn’t owned by the then WWWF or WWF/E at the time.

The first winner of this Championship was The Fabulous Moolah…

It was in a state of supposed limbo for almost 30 years and once again revamped in 1984, being won by – you guessed it, The Fabulous Moolah.

WWE, who was at the time called WWF, denied that it had EVER changed hands and The Fabulous Moolah had always been the Champion. This is a high point of debate for many.

That Championship was retired in 2010 when it was merged with the Diva’s Championship title that had been created in 2008.

In 2010, WWE introduced the newly combined Divas Championship title.

It was first won by Michelle McCool and had a total of 17 title holders.
