Ryback needs to take over for John Cena as the face of WWE.

If anyone could do it, it's Ryback.  Cena just is not the answer for WWE anymore, and in the opinion of many, has not been for a while.  What's also possible is that CM Punk isn't the answer.  Fair or not, CM Punk did preside over the worst ratings for Raw since 1997.

Ratings aren't everything, but fans vote with their remotes.  As good as some of the matches between Punk and Cena were, fans tuned out during Punk's reign.  

And there's another interesting wrinkle:  Even though Raw has bled viewers over the past five years, ratings drop even lower without Cena on the show.  The fans that dislike Cena are all gone by now, but when Cena isn't on the show, his fans tune out. 

All the stats point to one thing: WWE needs to move in a new direction.  Ryback can be that direction, and he should take over for John Cena as the face of the WWE.  Here are four reasons why.
