Part-time wrestlers who became world champion?
 
With Rock possibly becoming champion this Sunday, I'm curious as to whether or not a part-timer has won the title before.

Vince was champion once, but I can't call him a part-timer. He's engaged in almost everything that happens with the company.

Hulk Hogan was champion in 2002, but I can't remember if he was part-time or full-time.

{Note - My question only applies to WWF/E. I know David Arquette and Vince Russo won in WCW during its last days.}

We talking WWE Champions who were part time for the company or part time wrestlers in general?

If you're talking part time for the company, you have Antonio Inoki and some of Takers/HHH's reigns have been in years where they were borderline part time.

I'd say when Taker ended CM Punks WHC reign. And HBK originally was a part timer when he returned in '02 and when he won the WHC.

Nothing against the Rock but I hope he does not win. I hope a CM Punk victory is used to cement Punk as a headliner in the WWE.

I'm beginning to think that the Rock shouldn't win it more and more, just put over Punk and elevate him to that next level.

HBK originally only came back for one match at Summerslam 02, but since his back held up he became full time. When he became champion I wouldn't say he was a part timer.

I've been saying that for ages, Punk can take that momentum and status boost to Wrestlemania and then put somebody over by dropping the title to them. Cena makes sense in terms of storyline since their feud from 2011/2012 is still unresolved, but I'm thinking now the last thing we need is Cena in the main event.

I'd say he was because he hadn't been around between Summerslam and Survivor Series. Then after his one month reign he didn't wrestle and disappeared until that promo between him and Y2J when he super kicked him after Jericho said he was broken down. He didn't start wrestling regularly til after his match with Jericho at WM.
