WWE Takes Huge Step Forward In Gender-Equality With Women’s Championship

Published

on

WWE Hall of Famer Lita introduced the all-new WWE Women’s Championship at WrestleMania.

The lineage of female champions dates back to September 1965, when legendary WWE Hall of Famer The Fabulous Moolah began an astounding 28-year run with the title. Her successor, fellow WWE Hall of Famer Wendi Richter, defended the championship at the inaugural WrestleMania with pop star Cyndi Lauper in her corner in an event that melded the worlds of rock ‘n’ roll and sports-entertainment. Legendary women like Trish Stratus, Alundra Blayze, Lita and Jacqueline followed in those footsteps, proudly carrying the title en route to WWE Hall of Fame enshrinement themselves.

The championship has now undergone an incredible evolution. Modeled after the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, the WWE Women’s Title contains 283 stones positioned on a striking, white leather strap and a sleek, metallic recreation of WWE’s logo, which was constructed with assistance from Orange County Choppers of “American Chopper” fame.
