WWE replaces Women’s title with the diva belt

Sep 22, 2010 - by Steve Gerweck

The WWE Women’s title has been retired and WWE will be using the title of
Unified Divas title from now on as evident from RAW on Monday. The change
will mark the end of the Women’s title which was introduced in 1956 and
which was first won by The Fabulous Moolah. Layla is being billed as the
last champion to hold that title which she won in May of this year in a
match against Beth Phoenix. Phoenix, who is currently injured, said on
Twitter that it saddens her that the title is being retired. “I am so
grateful to have had the honor of holding it,” she wrote. Another former
Women’s champion, Mickie James, shared the same sentiment. “The retirement
of the Women’s Championship breaks my heart,” she wrote. “The nostalgia and
the legacy built off the backs of every woman who paved the way for women
like me…Who gave it credibility, honor, prestige and truth!” Trish Stratus
holds the record for the most wins, with a total of seven and 828 combined
days as champion. Moolah ranks first with a combined 10,778 days as champion
winning it on four different occasions. Mickie James ranks third when it
comes to different title runs, with five wins (thanks to Colin Vassallo)
