The AEW Women's World Championship is a women's professional wrestling world championship created and promoted by the American promotion All Elite Wrestling (AEW). It was officially announced on June 18, 2019.

History

On January 1, 2019, the professional wrestling promotion All Elite Wrestling (AEW) was founded. It was not until June, however, that AEW President and CEO Tony Khan announced future plans for both a women's championship and a women's tag team championship. It was then announced by AEW Chief Brand Officer Brandi Rhodes that the AEW Women's World Championship belt would be unveiled on August 31 at All Out, and that the inaugural champion would be crowned on October 2 during the inaugural broadcast of AEW's weekly television show, later revealed as Dynamite. Both participants for the inaugural championship match were determined at All Out. The first competitor was determined by the women's Casino Battle Royale during the Buy In pre-show, which was won by Nyla Rose. Later that night on the main show, Riho became her opponent by defeating Hikaru Shida. On the premiere episode of Dynamite, Riho defeated Rose to become the inaugural champion.
