List of WWE Divas Champions

Wikimedia list article

The WWE Divas Championship was a professional wrestling championship made in 2008 by the WWE. The wrestlers with the most reigns as Divas Champion are Eve Torres and AJ Lee with 3 each. The longest reigning champion is Nikki Bella with the aid of her sister Brie Bella, holding the championship for 301 days. There is no longer a Divas championship as the WWE doesn't want the women to be classed as a diva and now calls them WWE Superstars like the men. The WWE Women's Championship replaced the title at WrestleMania 32.

Charlotte, the last Divas Champion.
