POP (Princess Of Pro Wrestling) Title
The POP Title, or Princess Of Pro Wrestling Title, was a singles title in the now-defunct JDstar promotion. It was created in June 2006. In June 2007 it became unified with the JWP Jr. Title and remains so to this day. Since June 2007 the title is defended simultaneously with the JWP Jr. Title and anyone who is JWP Jr. Champion is also recognized as POP Champion. In October 2009 the title was officially unified/combined with the JWP Jr. Championship, before the belts were still 2 separate titles even though they were held by the same wrestler.
To this date there have been 11 POP Champions. They are listed below in order of reign along with which reign it was (some won it multiple times) and length of reign. Successful defense data prior to mid-2009 is currently not available.
