According to numerous sources, John Cena’s recent injury and lashing out at WWE.com has gotten the WWE brass into thinking about who will be the next “John Cena”.
Age is playing a major factor in singling out a star as Cena is currently 35 and Sheamus is also 35. While many feel Sheamus would be a strong star to build around, they are looking more for a star in his mid-20s than mid-30s.
Right away, people bring up CM Punk’s name but Punk (also in his 30s) doesn’t have the look of the face of a franchise and has also made it perfectly clear that he does not intend to wrestle for 10 more years.
Whomever it ends up being, whether they are under contract right now or not, many believe this will be the last handpicked top guy by Vince McMahon.
