Think about this. Cena could get hurt before Wrestle Mania. The WWE needs a backup plan. What better way to do this than push a fan favorite or create a new fan favorite. CM Punk is hot at the moment. I honestly see CM Punk and The Rock having better promos. I don't think the WWE would choose Randy Orton, but then again you know Vince loves his non-drawing Orton. I think even Vince maybe smart enough to realize that Orton vs The Rock is not good.
