List Of Wwe Women's Champions

The WWE Women's Championship is a women's professional wrestling world championship created and promoted by the American professional wrestling promotion WWE, defended on the SmackDown brand.

It was introduced on April 3, 2016, at WrestleMania 32 to replace the WWE Divas Championship and has a unique title history separate from the original WWE Women's Championship. Following the reintroduction of the brand split in July 2016, the title became exclusive to Raw and was renamed as the Raw Women's Championship after SummerSlam in August 2016 when SmackDown created the SmackDown Women's Championship as a counterpart title. As a result of the 2023 WWE Draft, the championships switched brands. In June 2023, the Raw Women's Championship reverted to its original name of WWE Women's Championship while the SmackDown Women's Championship became the Women's World Championship.

The championship is generally contested in professional wrestling matches, in which participants execute scripted finishes rather than contend in direct competition. Bayley is the current champion in her second reign. She defeated Iyo Sky during night two of WrestleMania XL on April 7, 2024, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

As of June 21, 2024, there have been 28 reigns between 12 champions. The first champion was Charlotte, who won the title at WrestleMania 32. She also has the most reigns with six. The champion with the single longest reign is Bianca Belair with a reign of 420 days while the record for longest combined reign is held by Becky Lynch at 560 days. Two women in history have held the championship for a continuous reign of one year (365 days) or more: Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair.
