WWWA World Singles Championship was a puroresu title controlled by All Japan Women's Pro-Wrestling and sanctioned by World Women's Wrestling Association. It was a flagship title for AJWPW and also considered as the most prestigeous championship in joshi puroresu (often in women's pro-wrestling in general).
It was created after Mildred Burke disputed her one-fall loss to June Byers during a 2-out-of-3-falls match on 1954/8/20 in Atlanta, Georgia for the (NWA) World Championship. Burke started WWWA in California with herself as the champion.
AJWPW closed in 2005/4; however, then-champion Maekawa Kumiko in her retirement match in 2006/3 against the former champion Takahashi Nanae. Takahashi won the title but retired it by returning the belt to the former AJWPW chairman Matsunaga Takashi immediately after the match.
