As seen tonight on Raw, WWE has officially retired the 50+ year old Women’s Championship. Going forward, the Divas Championship will be the sole belt for the women’s division and is currently being referred to as the Unified Divas Championship.
If the recent re-naming of the Unified Tag Team Championship to simply the WWE Tag Team Championships is anything to go by, WWE will likely drop ‘Unified’ from the name at some point.
It seemed likely that the Women’s Championship would be dropped, as many have noted WWE has created a lot of merchandise using the Divas Championship logo. Still, it’s a sad day to see such a historic belt retired.
