History of Championship

The national championships are managed by the Mexico City lucha libre commission, but the city itself prohibited women's wrestling from about 1953 until 1986. Women's wrestling was legal in other parts of Mexico, including Estado de Mexico right outside of Mexico City, but it was unclear if this championship was sanctioned or recognized by the commission. The main troupe of luchadoras was sometimes booked out by EMLL and seemed to be led by Irma Aguilar. There are many missing gaps and possible irregularities in reigns and title changes during this time. Women's matches were infrequently mentioned in magazines and this title was generally not mentioned in lists of current champions and year-end lists of title matches.

Reyna Gallegos' title win in 1987 is the first after women's wrestling was allowed again in Mexico City, so is in effect the first modern championship. The previous championship reigns are sketchy in terms of information, though the champions were generally considered the most important luchadoras in Mexico at the time.

Lola Gonzalez has been credited in some sources as holding the championship in 1988 and defending it against La Marquesa on May 15, in Arena Naucalpan.

Lady Apache held the championship nearly exclusively thru 2002 on, apart for a short run from Tiffany. Apache continued to be champion despite switching between AAA and CMLL (and back, and back) in 2005 and 2006, as the title is still officially controlled by the box y lucha commission. Apache won the CMLL World Women's Championship on Christmas Day, 2006, and held both titles for four months before deciding to give up the lesser national title.

A 14 women cibernetico was held at Arena Mexico on April 27, 2006, with the final two survivors - ruda Princesa Sujei and tecnica Marcela meeting in a title match the next following week.

Princesa Sugehit was the 19th champion, having beat Zeuxis to win the title on Febuary 25th, 2017 in Arena Coliseo

La Metálica was the 20th champion, having beat Princesa Sugehit to win the title on December 29th, 2018 in Arena Coliseo
