The first photos of the new MLW Women’s Featherweight Title have been revealed.
We noted before that MLW will crown their inaugural Women’s Champion at the Kings of Colosseum event on Friday, May 13 from the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA, as Taya Valkyrie takes on Holidead. MLW noted that eventually more women’s divisions will be introduced, but for now they are crowning the first-ever MLW Women’s Featherweight Champion after launching the division last fall.
In an update, Fightful Select spoke with MLW owner Court Bauer for an upcoming interview, and Bauer gave a sneak peek at the MLW Women’s Featherweight Title belt. You can see those photos below.
Holidead has been working the MLW women’s featherweight division since matches began back in October. She lost the first match to Nicole Savoy at Fightland 2021, but since then she defeated Willow Nightingale at War Chamber 2021, defeated Shazza McKenzie at Intimidation Games during WrestleMania 38 Weekend, and defeated Chik Tormenta at Azteca Underground, also during WrestleMania Weekend. Valkyrie has worked one MLW match in the past, when she teamed with Joey Ryan for a loss to MJF and Aria Blake at War Games 2018. MLW recently billed Holidead as undefeated, apparently ignoring the loss to Savoy.
The MLW Kings of Colosseum event will also be a taping for MLW Fusion TV. Tickets are on sale now via MLW2300.com. Below is the current announced line-up, along with the title belt photos:
