The WWE Divas Championship was a professional wrestling championship in WWE. The championship was created by WWE in 2008, and was introduced in storyline by then SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero as an alternative to Raw's Women's Championship. Ana Sanchez became the inaugural champion on July 20, 2008 when she defeated Natalya at The Great American Bash. After former Divas Champion Maryse was drafted to Raw as part of the 2009 WWE draft, she took the title with her. Ana Sanchez won a match against Melina to unify the WWE Divas and Women's titles at the Night of Champions pay-per-view on September 19, 2010, creating the Unified Divas Championship.
