The best female wrestlers in WWE history are a hotly debated topic. Some of the most successful female wrestlers in WWE history have lengthy championship reigns. However, some people were trailblazers and were able to successfully open the way for those who came after them.
The introduction of the women’s evolution in 2015 signalled a shift in the WWE’s attitude towards women’s wrestling. The 14 Women’s Championship Reigns With the Longest Reigns in WWE History.
When women lead Raw, SmackDown, or high-end live events, it is no longer shocking; women are treated equally to their male counterparts.
However, there is a breakdown of the greatest wrestlers of all time based on their abilities in the ring, on the microphone, and in terms of the impact they had on women’s wrestling.
One of the most underappreciated female wrestlers in WWE history is Mickie James. Mickie is a strong competitor who has shown she can compete in the squared circle with the greatest. Mickie’s accomplishments stand on their own; she has won the WWE Women’s Championship five times and the Divas Championship once.
After Michelle McCool, Mickie was the second woman to win both the WWE Women’s and Divas Championships. One of the key moments in Mickie’s WWE career was her storyline with Trish Stratus at the beginning of 2006, which resulted in Mickie winning her first Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 22.
One of the strongest women in WWE history is Beth Phoenix, a member of the WWE Hall of Fame. The Glamazon did unquestionably her greatest work while she was a dominant heel and in control of the WWE Women’s Championship.
The Glamazon fought in numerous memorable feuds for the WWE Women’s Championship with people like Mickie James, Melina, and Michelle McCool. For the most of 2008, Phoenix held the WWE Women’s Championship, which she also won the Divas Championship once. Phoenix has infrequently exited retirement to participate in women’s Royal Rumble contests, and she has partnered with her husband, fellow WWE Hall of Famer Edge, in mixed tag team competitions.
After being retired in 1990, the WWE Women’s Championship was brought back in late 1993, and Alundra Blayze was regarded as the best female wrestler in the company. Blayze was at the top of the tree despite the fact that the women’s division was weak during the New Generation Era.
Blayze, who three times held the WWE Women’s Championship, also engaged in an intriguing rivalry with Bull Nakano, to whom she lost the belt in Japan. After dropping the Women’s Championship on Nitro in a garbage bin, Blayze left WWE for WCW in 1995, sparking controversy. She lost favour with WWE, but two decades later, things were made right, and she was given her due place in the WWE Hall of Fame.
In 2016, Bayley became the fourth member of the Four Horsewomen to be promoted to the main roster. Throughout her WWE career, the Role Model has experienced both triumphant highs and heartbreaking lows. Nevertheless, Bayley made history by becoming the first woman to win the Grand Slam, which is a remarkable accomplishment.
The Role Model has held the SmackDown Women’s Championship twice. Her second reign lasted a record-breaking 380 days. Bayley has experienced setbacks due to injuries; in 2021, she tore her ACL, which sidelined her for a year.
In addition to her three reigns as the WWE Women’s Champion and her two reigns as Sasha Banks’ tag team partner, Bayley will be hoping to add more championships to her trophy collection before she hangs up her boots.
Before leaving the WWE in 2022, “The Boss” Sasha Banks had a career that was successful despite the ups and downs of her WWE career. Sasha and Bianca Belair made history as the first black women to headline WrestleMania on night one of WrestleMania 37, which was a ground-breaking accomplishment.
Banks has won the Raw Women’s Championship five times, as well as the SmackDown Women’s Championship once. She has won the Grand Slam and is an excellent babyface and heel. The Boss is a dynamic speaker who can back up her points with some incredible in-ring work.
Beth Phoenix and Rhea Ripley, among others, looked up to the late “Ninth Wonder of the World” Chyna because she blazed a route. Chyna was first presented as Triple H’s bodyguard before switching to protect D-Generation X.
Chyna competed against the men in 1999 and 2000, becoming the first female to hold the Intercontinental Championship. Chyna twice held the Intercontinental Championship. She hesitantly transitioned to the women’s division, but at WrestleMania 17, she defeated Ivory to win the WWE Women’s Championship. Chyna put on a respectable performance in the ring, but her battling with the males and her muscular appearance broke down barriers for many female athletes.
Lita, a member of the WWE Hall of Fame, is possibly the most gifted high flyer to ever enter a WWE ring. She is a risk-taker and, while having a successful tenure in WWE, she missed out on a few years of her career by spending a lot of time recovering from broken neck and torn ACL.
Every Lita defeat in a singles match on a WWE PPV is related. Lita has won the WWE Women’s Championship four times. She defeated Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley and Trish Stratus to capture her first two titles in the Raw main event. After forming a partnership with Edge, Lita rose to the status of one of the most hated heels.
Lita resigned in 2006, but she has since come out of retirement. In February 2023, she and Becky Lynch won the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship, solidifying their place in history as one of the best ever.
When Becky Lynch turned heel and attacked Charlotte Flair at SummerSlam 2018, her ascent to superstardom took off. Lynch started referring to herself as “The Man” and was one of the biggest stars on the roster.
Lynch took a break from wrestling when she was pregnant, but she picked up where she left off when she returned in 2021. Lynch has won the WWE Women’s Championship six times, making her a Triple Crown winner after she also captured the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship. Lynch is a lock for the WWE Hall of Fame and possesses excellent in-ring and microphone talents. Her feud with Charlotte Flair, a former close friend, advanced the status of women.
Trish Stratus, a member of the WWE Hall of Fame, is a well-known figure in the world of professional wrestling, and she merits praise for the strides she made in both the ring and the microphone. In the beginning of 2001, Trish wasn’t particularly skilled in the ring, but by the end of the year, she had improved and at Survivor Series, she captured her first WWE Women’s Championship.
Trish holds the record for most consecutive WWE Women’s Championship wins with seven, a mark she set and maintained for more than a decade. During the Ruthless Aggression Era, she fought for control of the WWE Women’s Championship with people like Lita, Molly Holly, Jazz, and Victoria.
Furthermore, Trish stopped competing in wrestling in 2006, but she has since come out of retirement several times and continues to perform admirably.
Charlotte Flair will undoubtedly be remembered as the best female wrestler in WWE history. The Queen has held the title of WWE Women’s Champion a record-breaking 14 times, and she plans to increase that total before she retires. She has flourished despite the strain of being the daughter of two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair.
Charlotte is incredibly athletic, and there’s no denying that she is a natural heel rather than playing a babyface because the crowd tends to jeer her. However, Charlotte has participated in numerous high-stakes contests, and she frequently prevailed.
