John Cena is known throughout the world. Some like him, but most hate him. He is the WWE's current poster boy, and through the years there have been many like him, such as Hulk Hogan in the 80s and Stone Cold Steve Austin in the 90s.
John Cena, as the King of WWE, has accomplished things that some can only wish for. He has won U.S. Titles, Tag Team Titles, World Titles (on nine different occasions), Royal Rumble, and he has headlined multiple Wrestlemanias. He is a Hall of Famer for sure, but when the time comes, he will retire from wrestling and one man will have to take his place.
I am writing the article today because I thought if John Cena is the King of World Wrestling Entertainment, then who will be his successor? Many people might say that John Cena is going to stay in the WWE for at least another five to seven years. Well, I think that Cena will do exactly what a legend of this industry did. His name was The Rock. After a short tenure in WWE, The Rock went to Hollywood, and that is what I believe Cena will do.
It makes perfect sense because the workload would be less, and he would be making more money as a film star. There are many young superstars in the business right now who would kill for the fame and fortune that Cena has. He stars in movies (they might be bad but are still movies) and commercials. What does the future hold for the WWE?
Who the next King will be in the WWE? Here are some superstars who might fill that spot when John Cena finally decides to hang up those boots (or sneakers, whatever he wears). The only rule is that they have to be younger than 35.
