5 Superstars who were WWE World Champions in 3 different decades
The Pro Wrestling business is centered around one thing: the top prize, the final goal, that one belt every Superstar wants to get their hands at. Every Pro Wrestling company has its own top belt that the wrestlers in that particular company strive to win. WWE has had the WWE title for decades on end, and a string of legendary Superstars have won the same over the course of the past 70 years or so.
Then, there are a select few who have not only won the top prize, but have done it in separate decades, with some going as far as holding it in three different decades. Let's take a look at 5 of these Superstars.
#5 The Rock
Thanks to the gimmick change from a generic babyface to an obnoxious heel, The Rock's career took a major turn that would soon make him one of the biggest Superstars of all time. The Rock is currently one of the biggest stars in Hollywood.
He won his first WWE title in the 90s, specifically at Survivor Series 1998. The Rock defeated Mankind in a re-enactment of the Montreal incident from a year prior, becoming the WWE Champion.
He won the title on several occasions in the 2000s, with his last reign being in 2002. It didn't last long, and The Rock lost the title to Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam. In 2013, The Rock met CM Punk at Royal Rumble, and defeated him to win the WWE title again, after a gap of 11 years.
He went on to lose the belt to John Cena at WrestleMania 29, in their rematch from the previous WrestleMania. Thus, The Rock managed to bag the title in three separate decades: 90s, 2000s, and 2010s.
