6 Absurd Wrestling Championships You Won’t Believe Existed

2. WCW Women’s Cruiserweight Championship

WCW was a promotion that always struggled in terms of keeping their women’s division relevant.

In truth, WCW couldn’t even keep fans interested in the regular version of the WCW Women’s Championship, which only lasted about a year in the promotion. Why they felt that there was some sort of demand for a Women’s Cruiserweight Championship is quite baffling.

The title was created as a sort of joint venture between WCW and GAEA Japan and was intended to be defended in both promotions. The three title holders included Toshie Uematsu, Yoshi Tamura, and Sugar Sato. While Uematsu and Tamura had respectable careers in Japan, they were not names that most North American wrestling fans would recognize.

The first champion was crowned on 7 April 1997, and the title was vacated in September of the very same year, while being held by an obscure wrestler named Sugar Sato.

Creating a secondary title for a division that no one cares about in the first place is never a recipe for success.
