Additionally, the WWF also recognized Moolah as having been champion ever since first winning the title from Judy Grable in 1956 and disregarded other reigns or title losses that occurred during the title's existence in the NWA.
Thus, The Fabulous Moolah's reign was considered to have lasted 27 years by the promotion.
Rockin' Robin was the last WWF Women's Champion in the late 1980s.
When the WWF phased out its female-talent roster in 1990, Sensational Sherri remained with the company, joining Sapphire (who then departed from the company in mid 1990) and Miss Elizabeth focusing on managing male wrestlers.
Miss Elizabeth took a leave of absence in 1990, but returned in 1991 and was a key player in Randy Savage's retirement match with The Ultimate Warrior at Wrestle Mania VII; Elizabeth left the company for good in 1992; shortly after her departure, Savage and Elizabeth divorced in real life.
At Wrestle Mania IX, Luna Vachon debuted and initially aligned herself with Shawn Michaels.
Miss Elizabeth's first major angle was during Savage's feud with George "The Animal" Steele in 1986.
