In this instance its probably because the WWE needs to have some people who didn't walk out on HHH (I believe they'll build towards Survivor Series with this match) so obviously they would have the top faces siding with him.
Usually because the crowd's going to do something heelish, or act negatively to a top face. Orton and Cena couldn't be seen doing anything like that. And Punk's the sort of person who would be there, so it sounds like your just going off this week's antics. In which case, because everyone got booed, and Cena and Orton can't be booed!
Orton is usually a 'loner' anyway so his character probably shouldn't give a fuck. As for Punk/Cena/Sheamus/Ryan, they're probably trying to play them off as the guys that want Trips to stay. I'd have put Kofi/Bourne in that category over Ryan but I guess because Kofi/Bourne got jumped by Miz/Truth at HIAC, it makes sense.
They are trying to portray Cena, Orton and Punk as the three main stars of the company by not being apart of this. Plus as Brye said, Orton is a loner who doesn't "play well" with others. So that plays into his character. Punk isn't really the type to make up his mind based on other people's feelings, and Cena is just.......Cena.
I think they are the top picks for who's teaming with The Rock at Survivor Series, or challenging for one of the Heavyweight Titles at Survivor Series/Vengeance. They don't want those names to be booed...
Well everyone keeps sayin that the WWE didn't want those guys booed for walking out on Trips, but after reading a few days ago that the WWE didn't want the fans booing HHH, perhaps they feared that the fans would cheer those guys for walking out, especially CM Punk, because of all his recent problems with management in the storylines.
Maybe they didn't want the fans agreeing with the revolt against HHH, so the kept the popular ones out of it.
