1973 Winner (Joyce Grable)

The PWI Woman of the Year award recognizes the best female professional wrestling personality of the year. Originally known as the PWI Girl Wrestler of the Year, it was rendered defunct in 1976 and its history would be subsumed into the current award when women were again bestowed their own category in 2000. Trish Stratus has won this award a record four times. AJ Lee is the only wrestler to win the award three times consecutively. Mickie James is the only wrestler to have won the award competing for two different organizations.
