Design revealed for NJPW's IWGP Women's Championship


We have our first look at the IWGP Women’s Championship.

Tokyo Sports revealed today the design for the championship, which was announced earlier this summer. The design is based on the second IWGP Heavyweight Championship design.

On Tuesday morning, NJPW detailed the upcoming tournament that will crown the first-ever champion. The tournament will begin on the second night of Royal Quest II on October 2 in London with quarterfinal matches. More quarterfinal matches will then follow on Stardom’s October 22 event. Semifinals will follow on Stardom’s Tachikawa card on October 23, with the finals taking place at NJPW and Stardom’s Historic X-over joint show on November 20.

The title will be defended on NJPW shows, with the first title defense taking place at Wrestle Kingdom 17 on January 4. While it may be defended on Stardom shows, it will not rank higher than Stardom’s current top titles, the World of Stardom Championship and the Wonder of Stardom Championship.
