It is time for WWE to launch a women’s mid-card championship


The WWE women’s division is stacked. There’s no other way to describe it. Candice LeRae’s surprise appearance on Monday Night Raw further established that across all three brands, this promotion boasts some of the best female performers in the industry. Yet, that depth still lags the overall opportunity available to each woman. With two main roster titles, the NXT women’s title and two pairs of tag team titles, there seems to not be enough space to go around. Therefore, WWE would benefit if the promotion launched a mid-card title for the women’s division.

One of the biggest improvements Triple H has made since taking over creative and talent relations is elevating the mid-card championships. Gunther and Bobby Lashley are two exceptional choices to make the Intercontinental and United States titles look like the big deals they are and in turn, both men come off as viable threats to the main titles. Part of this is also due to Roman Reigns holding both belts, which is a problem all in its own right.

The women’s division is in a different situation. Bianca Belair and Liv Morgan are credible champions for Raw and SmackDown. With names like Bayley and Ronda Rousey opposing them as top challengers, there isn’t much for the rest of the roster to do. The depleted tag team division hasn’t been rebuilt, but even that isn’t enough to keep the entire roster active and on television consistently.

Imagine the top of the main roster women’s division to include names like Belair, Morgan, Rousey, Bayley. Plus, you can’t count out the potential returns of names like Sasha Banks, Naomi, and Becky Lynch. That doesn’t leave a lot of space for others like Doudrop, Nikki ASH, Shotzi Blackheart, Xia Li, and other women that are more than capable. Giving them a mid-card championship helps build the pipeline of top challengers, gives fans fresh characters to embrace, and keeps more of the roster active from week to week.

It would be smart to have the initial push for the women’s mid-card championship go across brands, with women from both SmackDown and Raw chasing after the inaugural champion. Again, using Doudrop as the example, she could compete against Alexa Bliss on Monday, then follow that up with a match against Raquel Rodriguez on Friday.
