In a post-WrestleMania 39 era, following the recent Draft, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has been making intriguing changes to its championship landscape. Notably, Seth "Freakin" Rollins emerged victorious in the Night of Champions tournament finals, securing the new WWE World Heavyweight Championship by defeating AJ Styles.
Last Friday, during the June 2nd episode of Smackdown, WWE decided to alleviate Roman Reigns from the burden of carrying two belts. Consequently, they unveiled a brand-new, golden title, the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, exclusively for Reigns.
Introducing New Women's Championship
Building on this momentum, tonight's June 9th edition of Smackdown promises to be an eventful affair, as the company has announced the introduction of a new Women's Championship. The deserving recipient of this honor is Asuka, the current holder of the Raw Women's Title.
Fans eagerly anticipate Asuka's reaction to this prestigious accolade and are particularly excited to witness the unveiling of the championship's new design. The WWE Universe awaits tonight's Smackdown episode on FOX at 8/7 C, holding their breath in anticipation.
Reflecting on the recent draft, which transpired over a month ago, the Raw Women's Title transitioned to Smackdown alongside Bianca Belair. At the same time, the Smackdown Women's Title made its way to Raw, now held by Rhea Ripley.
This swap left fans perplexed, questioning the logic behind such a decision. However, it seems that WWE had a master plan in mind, deviating from the traditional title swap approach and instead potentially opting to rename the championships.
Asuka's victory over Bianca Belair at Night of Champions ended Belair's impressive 419-day reign as the Raw Women's Champion. On June 2nd, Xero News reported that WWE intended to align the Women's Titles with their male counterparts.
Further information from Fightful Select reveals ongoing discussions within the company about streamlining the two WWE Women's Titles, aiming to simplify their designs and presentation. While the exact appearance of these titles remains unknown, fans eagerly await tonight's Smackdown to catch a glimpse of their new look.
Tune in tonight to witness Asuka's WWE Women's Championship Presentation on Smackdown and discover the exciting developments that await the WWE Universe.
