WWE has a lot of things going on, and many changes are also being made across the board. Where WWE is unifying the women’s tag team titles, they gave a new look to the RAW Women’s Title during SmackDown this week. Now we know where the WWE Women’s Champion falls in the lineage of WWE Titles.

WWE recently unveiled several new championship titles, including the World Heavyweight Championship, currently held by Seth Rollins on Raw. Asuka got a new title this week as well.

When Seth Rollins captured his title, fans were curious about whether it would carry on the lineage of the former World Heavyweight Championship, which was retired in 2013. Surprisingly, the new title has established an entirely fresh lineage, with Rollins being officially recognized as its inaugural champion.

During the latest episode, WWE resolved the dilemma surrounding the Women’s Championships when Asuka relinquished the Raw Women’s Championship in favor of the newly introduced WWE Women’s Championship.


Given the introduction of the new title, fans speculated about whether it would continue the lineage of the Raw Women’s Championship or initiate a new lineage with Asuka as the first champion. Now, fans have their answer.

According to WWE.com, the championship is listed as the WWE Women’s Championship but maintains the lineage of the Raw Women’s Championship, rather than commencing a new lineage.

Asuka is set to defend the WWE Women’s Championship for the first time in three weeks on SmackDown in London, where she will face the returning Charlotte Flair, who made her comeback on the recent show.

The status of Rhea Ripley’s SmackDown Women’s Championship has yet to be addressed, leaving fans eagerly awaiting further updates.

We will have to see what’s next for Asuka as champion. She has a lot going for her, but only time will tell how long she holds onto that new title. Keep checking back with Ringside News for more.
