WWE is finally bringing back the women’s division in the company. According to the latest WWE rumors, the “Divas” brand will be dropped after WrestleMania 32 and replaced by the women’s division.
Brad Davis of SEScoops reports that WWE will be making the official announcement on the Raw after WrestleMania 32 in Dallas. The first Monday Night Raw after WrestleMania has always been very entertaining because of the crowd and this announcement will get a massive reaction.
The report also mentioned that there will be a new WWE Women’s Championship belt. It is reportedly similar to the WWE World Heavyweight championship but smaller and has white leather straps.
The design will probably better than the current WWE Divas title that has a purple color and butterfly design. Charlotte will be defending her championship against Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch in a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania 32.
It will be the last “Divas” match if ever these WWE rumors are true. All these three women came from NXT and fans should expect a show-stealing match from them. The winner will be the face of the WWE Women’s division as it ushers a new era.

Many female wrestlers in the main roster have wanted to change the name of title and division including current Divas champion Charlotte. “I think changing it to Women’s Championship would be great. It’s 2016 now,” Charlotte said via Wrestling Inc.
“I wouldn’t look at myself as your typical Diva. Strong, athletic—strong is the new skinny, however, you want to look at it—being able to have all these attributes as an athlete and be called a Diva I think it’s great but I would like the name Women’s Championship,” she added.
However, it should be noted that the WWE still has a show called “Total Divas” starring most of the women on the roster. It’s currently in its fifth season and has its own followers. It will be very interesting to see how WWE addresses it once the new era Women’s wrestling happens.
