With John Cena and Sheamus both recovering from injury, there is suddenly available real estate on WWE's mountaintop.
Cena's torn triceps and Sheamus' torn labrum will have them out of action for several months. Their absence changes the WWE landscape in a significant way. Two of the top babyfaces won't be around to take on the company’s vilest villains.
It's as if the Justice League has to spend half a year without Superman and The Flash.
Cena gave fans an update via Twitter.
Sheamus did the same.
While those men heal, the door swings wide open for both established stars and up-and-coming talent to perch themselves on top. Who will dominate the world title picture, main event pay-per-views and prevent Vince McMahon's company from tanking?
With choices both obvious and surprising, here are the seven Superstars who will step up with Cena and Sheamus sidelined.
