In their breakdown of the John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar match from last night's PPV, WWE.com proclaimed that there is no new face of the WWE, noting the following…
As the world witnessed, there was clearly nothing "running down his leg" like Lesnar teased. Rather, it was adrenaline running through Cena's bruised body. In the sold-out scene of Chicago's Allstate Arena, the resilient Cena felled the "wrecking machine" and took the first step toward rebuilding.
While the world waits to learn the fate of John Cena, who alluded to possibly "going away for a while" in the aftermath of the brawl on pay-per-view, the WWE Universe takes solace in knowing there will be no "new face of WWE."
On the contrary, in the fallout of Extreme Rules 2012, the face of WWE still features a tightly formed salute below the brim of a bright green hat. For now.
