The WWE Raw Women's Championship is a women's professional wrestling championship created and promoted by the American professional wrestling promotion WWE on the Raw brand. It is one of two women's championships for WWE's main roster, along with the SmackDown Women's Championship on the SmackDown brand. The current champion is Alexa Bliss, who is in her second reign.

Introduced as the WWE Women's Championship on April 3, 2016 at WrestleMania 32, it replaced the Divas Championship and has a unique title history, separate from WWE's original Women's Championship and the Divas Championship. Charlotte Flair, then known simply as Charlotte, was the inaugural champion. As a result of the 2016 draft, the championship became exclusive to Raw with a subsequent rename and SmackDown created the SmackDown Women's Championship as a counterpart title. It is the only WWE women's championship to have been featured in the headlining match of a pay-per-view event, which was Hell in a Cell 2016.

Title historyEdit

As of November 20, 2018, overall there have been 11 reigns between 4 champions. Charlotte Flair, then known simply as Charlotte, was the inaugural champion. She is also tied with Sasha Banks for the most reigns at four. Nia Jax's reign is the longest at 126 days. Banks' third reign is the shortest at 20 days. Jax is the oldest champion, winning her only championship at the age of 33, while Banks is the youngest when she first won the title at 24 years old.

Alexa Bliss is the current champion in her second reign. She won the title by defeating previous champion Nia Jax along with Bayley and Sasha Banks in a fatal four-way at TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs on October 22, 2017.
