Why do you think they won't be as full time? Undertaker is 46 and has pretty much been on and off for a large part of his career. Triple H is 42.
Cena has a good 8 more years, Orton has maybe 10. Both will only become even bigger stars. If you put Dolph or someone against Rock, it just looks like rock and some nobody. You give Orton, Cena, and Punk the rub from Rock, then later on Orton, Cena, and Punk give the rub to Ziggles.
Triple H and Taker haven't been full-time for a few years now. Just because Cena is 34 and Orton is 31 doesn't mean that they will be able to go on for extended time. Remember they have BOTH had extensive surgeries and had to take prolonged periods of time off. Their bodies are not at 100%, and as they go on will continue to take more damage. They have families now...it's not like back in the day with Taker being alone on the road or Triple H always having a partner with him.
You dont need to give a rub from Rock, Triple H, Austin, Jericho, Taker, etc. to get new stars over. WWE needs to STOP relying on veteran/legend talents. Rock/Cena, Jericho/Punk, hell even Hogan/Rock back in the day dont need to happen.
Cena, Orton, Punk...they are top stars. Let your younger talent like Ziggler, Barrett and Rhodes go ver these guys to get them to the next level. Dont give them a MITB. Let them win a RR and defeat a champion at Mania. Why go through veteran talents to give the rub to Cena, then a few years down the line Cena does it for someone else?
Fuck the "passing the torch" bullshit
. Use the stars you have now. The product is mediocre because WWE took too long to push the talent they have.
