One of the big changes the WWE Universe have wanted to see is a new championship being created for the women, which means scrapping the ugly-looking Diva’s Championship currently held by Charlotte.
This really kicked off once more when Charlotte, Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch moved up in the middle of the so-called Diva’s Revolution, and you can decide for yourselves whether that movement succeeded or failed.
IMPORTANT WOMEN’S MATCHES
Nevertheless, we’re seeing three of the four horsewomen compete in a triple threat match at WrestleMania for the Diva’s Championship. The night before that, Bayley defends her NXT Women’s Championship against Asuka at NXT TakeOver: Dallas.

It’s obvious that a Women’s Championship sounds more important and prestigious than a Diva’s Championship, and even Charlotte called for a return to the Women’s division in an interview recently.
She discussed her belief that we’re now in the next era of women’s wrestling as they’re getting more importance, storylines and TV time than ever before and that the WWE should consider representing women’s wrestling with a new Women’s Championship.
RETURN OF THE WOMEN’S DIVISION
It looks like the current champion could be getting her wish, as WrestlingNews.co are reporting that the WWE have already decided to drop the term “Diva” when they are referring to the female talent and that going forward, they’re looking to rebrand the entire division.
The start of the rebranding begins with a new championship, not only that, but it’s also rumoured that the WWE has already created a new WWE Women’s Championship belt and it’s said to be strikingly similar to the current WWE World Heavyweight Championship title held by Triple H.
The major differences to note – if the rumours are true – is that it will be smaller than the men’s championship title and the leather strap will be white rather than the traditional black.
It’s a good decision by the WWE not to go for another ridiculous decision – such as the butterfly we have had to see for the best part of eight years – as it shows consistency and fairness amongst the male and female stars and adds more importance to it also.
At the moment, there’s no strong confirmation because WrestleMania hasn’t even happened yet and we have no idea which woman will walk out the new champion, perhaps the outcome of The Undertaker and Shane McMahon match could have an effect of what’s to come.
The current expectation is that the official announcement will be made on the post-WrestleMania episode of Monday Night Raw. If that’s the case, then it marks a huge step forward for the WWE, and with the potential arrival of Bayley, things could be getting very interesting in the women’s division.
