The IWA Mid-South Women's Championship was the women's professional wrestling title in the Independent Wrestling Association Mid-South professional wrestling promotion. The title began on May 30, 2004 in a one night tournament titled "Volcano Girls" at the National Guard Armory in Hammond, Indiana co-promoted by IWA Mid-South Wrestling and NWA Midwest Wrestling. Until June 17, 2005, it was a joint championship with the NWA Midwest Women's Championship and was known as the NWA Midwest/IWA Mid-South Women's Championship.[1][2]

3 Ariel 1 January 15, 2005 28 Framingham, Massachusetts Ariel defeated Mercedes Martinez and Hayley Skye in a three-way match at a New England Championship Wrestling event to become the third NWA Midwest/IWA Mid-South Women's Championship.
4 Daizee Haze 1 February 12, 2005 84 Highland, Indiana Daizee Haze defeated Ariel, Cheerleader Melissa, Mickie Knuckles, MsChif and Sara Del Rey in a six-way elimination match, last defeating MsChif, to become the fourth NWA Midwest/IWA Mid-South Women's Champion.[3]
5 MsChif 1 May 7, 2005 35 Streamwood, Illinois Defeated Daizee Haze at an NWA Midwest event promoted by Ed Chuman to become the fifth NWA Midwest/IWA Mid-South Women's Champion.
On June 17, 2005, in Midlothian, Illinois, Ed Chuman, NWA Midwest promoter, declares that a supposed title change on June 11 (an IWA Mid-South event in Philadelphia, PA where Mickie Knuckles defeated MsChif and Allison Danger in a 3-way match to become champion in IWA's eyes) is invalid due to the match not being sanctioned by the NWA. The two titles then split into separate entities as IWA Mid-South promoter Ian Rotten recognized Knuckles as champion with her win over MsChif. Knuckles is thus the first strictly IWA Mid-South Women's Champion, and is where that portion of the title lineage begins.
