That's the reason why I think Cena is the only fit; who else would you trust at this point to be the face of the WWE and not fuck it up? I would be comfortable with Punk taking it if he was a better representative of the WWE, but he's not. You are right, Cena doesn't NEED the win; but he is the only one I see worth trusting the WWE Brand in his hands (unless you see someone else with the same amount of charitable character that I don't).
And honestly, I disagree with the outlook of the Rolex for Taker because he was much more than an employee who lasted a long time. He was/is a father figure to a LOT of those guys in the back. That's why I'd rather see him give the nod to the locker room; his "blessing" so to speak. All he ever wanted was to know those that he taught, trained, and guided would be in good hands once he left. And by giving the nod to the Era/Locker room as a whole, it would be him saying that he knows that everything will be okay when he's gone.
