The Princess of Pro-Wrestling (POP) Championship is a women's professional wrestling championship owned by the Pure-J promotion. The title was created in the JDStar promotion on June 24, 2006, when Fuka defeated Natsuki☆Head in the finals of a tournament to become the inaugural champion.[2] On June 17, 2007, JWP Joshi Puroresu's reigning JWP Junior Champion Arisa Nakajima won the title on JDStar's second to last event.[4] Though the two titles were technically not unified, they were defended together from this point onward.[5] The titles remained together in JWP for nearly a decade before it was announced on February 8, 2017, that the promotion was shutting down. As a result, the two titles would once again be separated with the JWP title remaining with the promotion's production company, while the POP title moved on to Command Bolshoi's follow-up promotion to JWP,[6][7] later named Pure-J.[8][9] Between the transition from JWP to Pure-J, the former JWP roster held events under the name Dream Joshi Puroresu, where the POP title was also defended.[1]

Like most professional wrestling championships, the title is won as a result of a scripted match. There have been twenty-two reigns shared among nineteen different wrestlers. Saori Anou is the current champion in her first reign.[1]

Reigns[edit]

Fuka was the first champion in the title's history.[5] Arisa Nakajima, Rabbit Miu and Rydeen Hagane share the record for most reigns as champion with two.[3] Manami Katsu's only reign holds the record for the longest reign, at 482 days,[3] while Rydeen Hagane's first reign holds the record for the shortest reign at 21 days.[3] Overall, there have been twenty-one reigns shared among eighteen different wrestlers. Yako Fujigasaki is the current champion in her first reign.[10]
