John Cena's recent injuries and divorce have reportedly gotten people talking backstage regarding who will be the next top guy to take the torch according to F4Wonline.com.
Age plays a factor in the picking. Cena is currently 35 and interestingly Sheamus is also 35. Sheamus is someone who gets brought up as a top guy but many feel the next guy should be in his mid-20s right now.
CM Punk is a heel and also doesn't have the look WWE wants. Sheamus has the look, is liked by the right people—but there is concern over his age as well as his character being the right fit.
Whoever it ends up being, reports suggest many believe this will be the last hand picked star by Vince McMahon.
