Throughout its illustrious history, WWE has witnessed the rise of countless charismatic and awe-inspiring superstars who have left an indelible mark on the industry. One such name that stands out among them is John Cena.
He is loved by millions of fans worldwide, thanks to his unwavering determination, passion for wrestling, and his down to earth personality.
Being the face of the company for over a decade, Cena’s impact on the industry cannot be overstated. However, as Cena gradually transitions into a part-time role, the WWE Universe finds itself eagerly searching for the next superstar capable of carrying the torch. Here are the 3 WWE superstars who can become the next John Cena.
1. Is Austin Theory the new John Cena?
Austin Theory has been mentioned as a potential successor to John Cena’s legacy. The parallels between these two superstars are undeniably striking. Just like Cena, Austin Theory is a natural heel and has experienced a substantial early push in his career, much like Cena received during his early days in WWE.
The baton is already passed by The Cenation leader after he lost to Austin Theory at WrestleMania 39. So it’s just the matter of time when we will see The Prodigy capturing numerous championship and headlining marquee events.
2. Can Drew McIntyre become the new John Cena?
Drew McIntyre has all the necessary ingredients to become WWE’s next big thing, much like Cena. His ability to deliver powerful promos and connecting with the crowd on an emotional level mirrors Cena’s strengths. However, despite his immense potential, he consistently finds himself in the midcard due to various factors.
To carry the torch forward and potentially evolve into the next Cena, Drew McIntyre should be given his fair chance to prove himself with some more championship reigns.
3. Cody Rhodes
Cody Rhodes has been a different beast ever since he returned to WWE. The glimpses of Cena’s greatness can be observed in The American Nightmare when he is delivering promos and his storytelling inside the squared circle.
If he continues to deliver performances at this extraordinary level, there is no doubt that Rhodes will replicate the aura Cena had in WWE.
