Mike Johnson of PWInsider is reporting that the NXT Women’s Championship will no longer be called such, but simply just the “NXT Championship” which is what the men’s title is also referred to as.
According to Johnson, this was an “internal decree” by WWE that the title be re-branded without “women” in its name. This is also in light of Becky Lynch’s appearance on WWE Backstage in which she believed that all belts should be presented with more of a wrestling focus rather than a male or female distinction as history’s already been made for both genders. No word as of yet if to this is a plan going across the board for the company, but this appears to be a new move for WWE.
