Backstage Talk About WWE Grooming Top New Guy
 
http://www.lordsofpain.net/news/wwe/...n_Sheamus.html

Quote:

- With 35 year old John Cena currently dealing with back, elbow, hip and neck issues, there has been a lot of talk for months about who is the next top guy for WWE. With Vince McMahon's days likely numbered, some believe that the next top guy after Cena will be Vince's last ever hand-picked top guy.

While Cena won't be replaced as the top guy until his body breaks down or until the public tires of him, there is a feeling that you have to think about the future now as Vince has never gone with anyone older than 40 as his top guy because people think he cuts bait early and then moves on.

Vince has told both the traveling and non-traveling writing staff, as well as the RAW and SmackDown crews, that they are now to put emphasis on storylines and angles for Sheamus. The idea is that CM Punk is a heel and won't be that top guy. Plus in their minds of what "the guy" is supposed to look like, Punk doesn't fit. Triple H is also backing Sheamus because he's big enough, dedicated enough and loyal enough. At the same time, many people feel Sheamus wouldn't be right as the face of the company because of his character. Another downside to Sheamus is he's almost 35 and if they are looking at grooming the next guy for Cena's spot, they should be looking at someone who is 25 or so.

Titus O'Neil, Santino, Brodus or Tensai? :rolleyes:

Pretty sad that we can't even name ONE. D.Bry is too small for it as fucked as it sounds. An Irish overrated Wrestler with horrible mic skills? Oh yeah, please Vince.

In Ryback, Cesaro and Sandow I trust.

Edit: How old are Ziggles and Cody?

So this article is basically saying they might push Sheamus as the next top guy, buuuuuuut they also might not. Alright then.

I had hopes that Alex Riley would get the big push, given up on that now, I know he's not the best worker but he's young and he'll get better, and he just looks like a guy Vince would want as the face of his company when Cena goes, Vince could make some big money from him, if he used him right.

Right now the best pick for a new face would be Ryback, looks like they are really going to try and get him over as a big time face.
