WWE's Women's division is currently stronger than it has ever been during The Company's current PG era.

The females who perform on the main roster are finally being praised for their wrestling capabilities, and the WWE Universe look set to see a women's match worthy of the WrestleMania card when Charlotte defends her Divas Championship against Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch on Sunday night.

BUTTERFLY FLY AWAY

Given that last year's Divas Revolution was considered a failure, these three divas have managed to fight back and prove why they are some of the best female prospects in WWE today.

Vince McMahon is reported to have stated that he rates Sasha Banks higher than many male superstars on the roster, which proves just how far the women have come.

Despite this, the women of WWE's main roster are still referred to as Divas because of the hideous pink butterfly belt.

The days of womens wrestlers in WWE being Divas are well and truly over and it seems like the perfect time to reinstate the Womens Championship.

CHARLOTTE'S CHALLENGE

The current WWE Divas Champion Charlotte echos these thoughts and stated in a recent interview with Alfred Konuwa that she thinks its time for a change.

She said: "I think changing it to Women’s Championship would be great. It’s 2016 now. We’ve had the Divas Championship for how long now? And I just think NXT is the Women’s Championship, I find no reason why the main roster couldn’t change it.

"The term Divas is special to WWE, and the fact that, for instance myself, I wouldn’t look at myself as your typical Diva. Strong, athletic—strong is the new skinny, however you want to look at it—being able to have all these attributes as an athlete and be called a Diva I think it’s great but I would like the name Women’s Championship.”

With the NXT Women's Championship now thought to be more prestigious and sought after than The Divas Championship, it could be the perfect time for a change within the Women's Division.

The Women's Championship has such a storied history that many women within WWE would feel honoured to be aforded the opportunity to compete for it and it would signal the end of WWE's run of Divas style women's wrestlers.

This is something fans have been fighting for almost since the Divas Championship was debuted in 2008, but their actions have fell upon deaf ears, is now any different?
