Not to mention Irish. There ain't no way Vince is pushing a non American as the face of the WWE. He's way too crazy on that support the troops stuff. And even if he did, Sheamus is not charismatic enough to pull it off.
Anyway, we don't know, they aren't in the business. Besides, Cena's probably never going to retire at his pace. He just doesn't know what the fuck the word "break" means.
I think it's that Vince doesn't know what the phrase "break from Cena" means anymore. Cena would probably take a break if it was possible. Though, then again, he lives and breathes the business more than pretty much anyone.
I really wouldn't want Sheamus as the face. I dislike the Irish accent, the over use of the word "fella" and his random blabbering. If Cena retires at 40, I expect Orton to be the transitional top dog till they build someone up. No one knows who'll be next they may not be on TV or hired yet.
Someone could randomly just burst out at anytime really. Like Cena when he accepted Angle's challenge who said whilst watching it "this guy is the new face and gonna be huge"? For me he had the second coming of Maven all over him. Proved me wrong.
If Cena retired today, Ryback would be the first immediate beneficiary. His winning streak makes him a kayfabe legitimate title contender. Could be pretty good. I liked seeing Punk a little intimidated by him on Monday.
but he is so awful in every aspect it's what really worries me about the product right now, how a guy like ryback can be pushed to the moon when he lacks everything that makes a star a top face of the company, at least goldberg had some charisma and personality if we to the inmediate comparison
for everyone saying Ryback, he is nearing 30 if not there already. by the time Cena isn't up to carrying the load anymore, Ryback will be 38...
Just a guess.
That's why you don't see Punk being pushed to the moon at the expense of Cena. Phil is like 32. Why put your future in a guy who is only 4 years younger than your current mega star?
WWF went to Ultimate Warrior, then Bret Hart, then Shawn Michaels, then Steve Austin, then The Rock, then Brock Lesnar, etc. and it worked because they were getting guys who were mid to lat 20's and still had (or so they thought) alot of life left.
