The WWE Women's Championship is a wrestling championship in WWE competed for by women. It was created on April 3, 2016 at WrestleMania 32. It replaces the WWE Divas Championship as the women title in WWE. However, this title does not share the title history of the original Women's Championship.

History[change | change source]

At WrestleMania 32 on April 3, 2016, Lita announced that a new WWE Women's Championship would be created. In the process, the Divas Championship would be retired.[1] Later in the night, the Divas Champion Charlotte beat Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks to win the new Women's Championship.[2]

The title shares its name with the original Women's Championship. However, the new title does not share the same title history as the original.[3] The first Women's Championship was unified with the Divas Championship in 2010. As result, they combined their lineage and history.[4][5]
