As part of an article that she composed for The Players' Tribune, Stephanie McMahon offered the following comments regarding the recently-reactivated WWE Women's Championship, which replaces the now-retired WWE Divas Championship:
"Lita made reference to all of the pioneers who have led the way for this transition, including "The Great" Mae Young, Fabulous Moolah, Wendi Richter, Sensational Sherri, Trish Stratus and recent Hall of Fame inductee Jacqueline. She spoke of her pride in the Divas Division, the evolution of the Women’s Division, and then she revealed the physical symbol of this transition: a brand new WWE Women’s Championship belt with the same aesthetics as the male WWE World Heavyweight Championship belt. This title belt represents the pinnacle of achievement, and that in WWE, it isn’t about gender, race or ethnicity — it is simply about being the best at what you do."
