Vince’s Final Face Of WWE, WWE & Mexican Stars, Onhno Inured

– WWE is once again looking to sign Mexican wrestlers. With Sin Cara’s career getting off to a very rocky start, Rey Mysterio’s recent issues and even Alberto Del Rio stating that he does not plan to be wrestling in a few years, the company scouting a young, charismatic, English-speaking high-flying Mexican star.

– With John Cena recently turning 35 years old, there has been talk that Vince McMahon is already on the hunt for his next “John Cena.”

Over the past 30 years, Vince McMahon has hand-picked Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Steve Austin, The Rock, Triple H and now John Cena as the top babyface in the company.

At 66 years old, Vince McMahon is still the king of WWE with a hand in virtually every aspect of the company, but he will be delegating more responsibilities to Triple H and Stephanie as time goes on. It’s been said that the next top baby face to carry the torch in WWE could be Vince’s final hand-picked face of WWE.

– FCW star Kassius Ohno, the former Chris Hero, is reportedly out of action due to a cervical sprain that happened at the April 26th FCW tapings in a match against his former partner Antonio Cesaro.

Ohno did a twisting dive to the outside of the ring onto a group of wrestlers but came up short and landed on the top of his head. He finished the match but was then taken to the  hospital for x-rays.

    Really Vince just checks the pulse of the crowd and then he pushes the guy to the moon.


    I wonder who will be the next face of wwe. I got to admit I am interested to see how triple h does with more resposibilties.
    I love the idea of wwe looking for more mexican wrestlers. Hopefully they’ll be smart and take their time when they do bring them in. I also hope they look for japanese wrestlers as well.

  • bayarea08

    I always thought that The Undertaker was in that list =/

    • GodsLoyalSon

      He was more like lightning caught in a bottle because they didn’t expect for him to be this successful back then


    How much you wanna bet he makes a big push on Zack Ryder because there is no one i can really think of unless they go steal a big name from TNA who is younger and that is sort of hard because there all wwe rejects and there not young either the only face i could see would be Matt Morgan or AJ Styles but both are in there thirties.

    • Elgwyn

      There are other options aside from Ryder. But IMO, Zack isn’t that bad. I find his wrestling OK, but in the event that he’s one of the few chosen to be the next face of WWE, his goody character should go and he still needs to work on his wrestling skills and add some muscles.


    You know whats crazy Brock is two years younger than John Cena.

    • gabe

      They are both born in 1977.

      • IKeepsit100

        yes but lesnar younger by 1 year(few months)

        • morph_3

          Cena – born April 23 1977
          Lesnar – born July 12 1977
          They are only a few months apart in age.

          • IKeepsit100

            LOL one of us got it backwards but i was pretty sure lesnar is younger and born in april

    • Jbabyface218

      UR WRONG cena is 35 brock is 34

  • MadWolf

    the new faces of the WWE Seth Rollins, Kassius Ohno, Antonio Cesaro, Dean Ambrose, richie steamboat and Ryback

    • Kjhaltz

      Richie Steamboat is an option he is 24 years old. He would need to tone out more. Seth Rollins is 25 and has nice matches. Just don’t know if either can kill it on the mic for live WWE audiences.

      The others listed are push 30’s so when Cena is gone guessing in the 40’s some will be mid 30’s or near 40 too. So they’ll be near hanging it up too.

      • Zachary

        If the crowd can get behind Jeff Hardy they can get behind Seth Rollins, he has that look for the girls to get behind and obviously the talent for the guys to get behind.

  • Andrew Campbell

    I can’t wait for the next “face of the WWE” to come along. A year into Cena’s run as the face of the company, he was already starting to become stale as hell.

    The thing is that there is no one on the current roster that stands out as a potential future face of the company IMO. Whoever it is, I hope it’s not another Cena/Hogan-type tailored exclusively towards kids.

    • pwnez

      It’s going to become the same thing with whoever the new face will be. Just watch, after a year or so people will grow tired and bored of him. It’s just the way things are when someone is at the top for a long period of time.

    • Kyle Cotton

      I personally think it will either be sheamus, ryback, or someone who isn’t in the company. I would say Miz because I think he could be one hell of a babyface but they way they are treating him thats no gonna happen.

  • Brian Clark

    Cody Rhodes or Doplh Ziggler I would like to see as the new face. But just think all this stuff that John Cena has done, Brock Lesnar was supposed to do. A lot of things in WWE could have changed.

    • cappa37

      Cody Rhodes is the next face. He’s got the look, the pedigree, the connections in the back and pretty good in the ring. I can see him in a big match at WM29

      • Brian Clark

        Right, him and Ziggler should be where Cena and Orton are at in three years.

  • SOBI

    DOLPH ZIGGLER FTF(for the face)

  • pwnez

    I honestly think right now Daniel Bryan is/could be a candidate to be the next face of the WWE. I’m not sure if Vince is looking for someone who is bigger but if that’s the case I hope it’s not Ryback or Zeke. Hell, maybe Cody Rhodes can be that guy.

    It sucks though, after awhile we’ll most likely grow tired of whoever the new face is. That tends to happen when someone is at the top for a long period of time.

    • cappa37

      It could be Ryback. Apparently Vince was very high on him when he first debuted in Nexus. Too early to judge him though. Gotta give him a chance to break out of Goldberg’s shadow and show what he can do. He might have something.

      • IKeepsit100

        Ryback?? dude hasen’t even talked on the mic yet LOL…atleast not since his last appearance as skip. If he sounds like skip(NO GOOD)

  • BrahmaBullRKO

    I’d love to say that it will be Bryan, Rhodes, or even Barrett, but there isn’t anyone I can really see carrying the company on their shoulders. I can see them being top guys, but not THE top guys. I could be wrong, though.

  • Jamie

    CM Punk is already it.

  • indywrestler22

    Santino Marella (&yes I am joking.Love Santino though.)

  • Rodrigo Ceballos

    If anyone deserves being the Face of the WWE besides CM Punk and Bryan It has to be the Miz He’s absolutely great with media appereances He is awesome on the mic He’s markeatbale and catchy catch phrases

    • SES4life

      I’m with ya, when Miz first won MITB I was skeptical about how he’d do in the top title position, but when he won the WWE Championship and started doing some of his promos I realized he has what it takes to pull it off

      • shashy626

        Fully agreed, plus he has plenty of time to develop his wrestling ability

    • Jmc60

      I would go with Miz to hes gotta great personality great with media cuts a amazing promo and needs work on his ring skills though

    • TotalNonstopAddict

      I agree he should be a main eventer and one of the guys to carry WWE but he;s much better suited to being a heel.

  • Nightmare

    Hello age of Punk.

  • brad

    I say either punk or barre maybe Seamus or even a new guy ryback wouldn’t be bad.

  • wwetnadudez

    Like others, I don’t mind seeing the Miz, but honeslty I’d love for it to be Dolph Ziggler.

  • Bushwald Sexyface

    Dolph Ziggler

  • mjwai

    I don’t see Vince picking a new face for 5 to 8 year specially with Cena’s divorce. My picks are Trent Berrett or Cody Rhodes both are young and haven’t really been missed used. Dolph Ziggler, Sheamus, Miz and Ryback are 30 or older and I think Dolph has been misused as well as Jack Swagger, Zack Ryder or Wade Barret.

    • morrisonfanone

      Too bad Rnady Orton isn’t a little younger.

  • morph_3

    Most of the guys on the roster are past 30 including McGillicutty, DiBiase, Brodus, Punk, Bryant, Darren Young, The Miz, Ryback, etc.
    I suspect that if Vince wants a younger wrestler than that person may not even be in the WWE right now.

  • morrisonfanone

    Oh, good luck with that, Vince. Because clearly Evan Bourne is the next John Cena.

  • WheresMyPyro???

    Didnt he pick drew McIntyre?

  • Satishwarne708

    I hope Vinni mac picks Tyler Black!Rollins or whatever they call him now!

  • John

    I could easily see Cody Rhodes being the next top face and Drew McIntyre being the next tope heel. Both are really young(both 26 I believe) and they have the look and skill for it. Vince is supposedly high on Drew it’s just a matter of time before he gets a gimmick that works for him. I say maybe recycle Triple H’s old gimmick of a snobby blue blood or something. Either way I like both of these two and hopefully they work at it and get the shot I thikn they deserve.

  • bowdster

    now cena out of action they can get back to pushing cm punk as new face, and get rid of the stupid spinning belt,
    Also pg wrestlin is crap, anyone else feel like wrestlin took a massive step backwards to the 80’s (maybe done intentionally so that they could have a re-birth a la 90’s?)
    I think cm punk and ziggler are the future for now, both need to get in the gym to start working out, cant see cmpunk beating the likes of brock (if it were to happen) it just does not look credible,
    also cmpunk needs a better finisher, the ‘go to sleep’ just looks messy
