Abandoned: The History of the Two WCW Women's Championships

Throughout history, professional wrestling has seen many championships.

In WWF/E, there are six major titles. Not many know that the company has had a total of at least 19 different titles, 13 of which have been abandoned for one reason or another.

The other two major companies owned by WWE are WCW and ECW, which have at least 15 abandoned and forgotten titles between them.

For as long as it takes, I will be concentrating on those forgotten titles.

Each slide will feature the champion, who they defeated, where and when they won it, the length of their title reign, any special circumstances that happened during their reign, and a bit of commentary.

Belts with a lengthy history will get their own articles and may be broken up into two depending on the length. Titles with a short history may be featured in a standard article, but if they’re really short they’ll be at the end of another title.

For this edition of Abandoned, I present the two women’s titles of WCW.

The first popped up in 1996 and was the WCW Women’s World Heavyweight Championship.

The title was created as a joint venture between World Championship Wrestling and a Japanese women’s wrestling promotion named GAEA Japan.

The title only stuck around for a year and saw only two champions.
