Bayley Comments On A Potential WWE Mid-Card Women’s Championship

At present, WWE has more active championships for its female Superstars than ever before. Alongside the Raw, SmackDown, and NXT Women’s Championships, there are also Women’s Tag Team Championships for Raw and SmackDown, and for NXT; a total of five active women’s titles, six if you factor in the intergender 24/7 Championship.

The one thing that many feel is missing, however, is a women’s mid-card championship. Though Chyna is a former Intercontinental Champion, and Madusa, Daffney, and Jacqueline held the Cruiserweight Championship, they were male-oriented championships held by female performers.

Given the current depth of the women’s roster in WWE and the fact that they often focus on the same few names when it comes to the women’s singles championships, a mid-card women’s championship may now be overdue.

“Someone Has To Stand Up For It” – Bayley

Discussing the possibility of WWE introducing further women’s championships in a new interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Riju Dasgupta, Bayley noted that when the company has added titles for its female Superstars in the past, it only came after a lengthy period of fighting for the right:

“I mean, it wouldn’t hurt [to have a mid-card women’s championship]. It would be nice to have another title but I think it’s just gonna take time. You know, when we wanted those women’s tag team titles, it took a long time and it took someone actually fighting for them. So if that’s what we want, someone has to stand up for it and really fight for it and prove that it’s going to be a benefit to the division.”

Bayley has held all of the championships on offer for women in WWE, bar the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships. Her title history made her the first women’s Triple Crown and Grand Slam Champion in WWE.
