WWE Concerned About John Cena: Five Superstars Who Can Replace Him
December 6, 2016 - WWE
WWE is reportedly endangered about John Cena’s destiny with a company.
According to a Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer (h/t WrestlingInc), there is inner worry about “how most Cena will be around” subsequent year:
Officials are reportedly endangered about how most Cena will be around in 2017 as he continues to accept outward offers for other projects.
What’s mocking is that a basement of Cena’s ancestral argument with The Rock was his oath to never leave a WWE for Hollywood. Just a few years later, however, Cena has done utterly a name for himself as an actor, and a offers seem to be pouring in. He recently landed a vital film role, will be hosting this week’s part of Saturday Night Live and is currently on hiatus to film a second deteriorate of a existence show American Grit.
In other words, Cena has one feet out of a WWE door, and a other one is streamer that way, too.
With Cena now operative as a part-time captivate and a captivate of an behaving career pulling him toward Hollywood, his WWE career could be entrance to an finish earlier than many expected. If that’s a case, WWE improved start building adult other stars in an bid to “replace” him as a face of a company.
Who competence that be? Let’s take a demeanour during 5 superstars who could step adult to turn a face of WWE as Cena starts to step away.
The good thing about Finn Balor is that he’s good famous from his time in NXT yet still adequate of a vacant line-up among infrequent fans that he can win them over.
Balor is identical to Cena in that he’s a well-rounded and healthy babyface, yet their gimmicks are impossibly different. Balor’s impression is one that is over in a vital approach with WWE fans since of a uniqueness, and total with his elite turn abilities in a ring, he is a “big match” performer with a intensity to be a tip babyface whenever he gets back.
There is also an easy story to tell with Balor as he’s set to lapse shortly from a career-threatening injury, that is a good setup for an epic babyface lapse that would see Balor recover his mark as Raw’s No. 1 babyface and potentially a tip altogether star in a company.
AJ Styles, both in storyline and actuality, is attempting to reinstate Cena as a face of SmackDown and a whole WWE.
It’s no tip that he now refers to himself as “The Face That Runs a Place” and “The Champ Who Runs a Camp,” and both nicknames are equivocal shoots as Styles’ recognition continues to ascend to unmatched levels notwithstanding a fact that he’s requisitioned as a heel. Go behind and watch Survivor Series, Backlash, No Mercy or any new part of SmackDown, and you’ll see that there might not now be a star in a association who rivals Styles in terms of generating a greeting from a crowd.
Styles’ long-term destiny is as a categorical eventuality size babyface, and even yet he’s roughly 40 years old, he’s display positively 0 signs of negligence down and is behaving during a aloft turn than any other WWE star.
