As all us WWE fans know, John Cena has been the staple of the program for quite some time now. Love him or hate him, hes easily the biggest draw in the company and one of the most popular wrestlers of his respective era. Now my question is as follows...
If John Cena were to pack up and leave the company tomorrow for some reason, (reason not important) how would the WWE respond and how would it effect the programming? Who would become the new face of the company?
I personally believe it would have a huge effect but short term. At first the ratings would remain the same because of people tuning in to see WWE post Cena and what direction the company takes. Then ratings would fall a little bit periodically until a new top face/draw is established. Orton would probably be shipped back over to Raw in the meantime to pick up some of the slack.

The thread's title reminded me of that book "Life After God".
Anyway I'm sure if Cena leaves they'd get somebody else and push him heavily and that'll be that.
