John Cena and Randy Orton are arguably the two biggest stars in WWE, but could the company be relying on them too heavily?

Between them so far this year, Cena and Orton have main evented every pay-per-view except Extreme Rules, where Daniel Bryan took on Kane for his world title.

Not only that, but Cena was out of action this time last year and Orton and Bryan were pushed into the spotlight whilst the former was rushed back to health so he could return and gain another title.

Cena haters

There are many Cena haters out there because of the way the WWE treat him and allow him title shots and wins against people when he doesn't deserve them.

Many think the 15-time world champion has just five moves and also think that he has been pushed to the top of WWE because of his successful rap and movie career.

Whilst this is partially true, Cena could have left WWE a long time ago and enjoyed a successful movie career just like The Rock. Instead, he decided to stay and has since won further world titles and become a household name.

Orton - getting stale?

Orton, on the other hand, is thought by some to only be where he is because of his father and grandfather before him. He was the youngest ever world champion over a decade ago and it seems WWE never pushed him enough with this. His time in Evolution allowed him to develop and become a better performer and superstar but recently all this has become stale.

WWE have put Cena v Orton for the WWE title as the main event of so many different pay-per-views that the Universe has become bored of it. The two between them are the face of WWE and now newbie Roman Reigns looks to be a threat to this.

Much like Cena and Orton, Reigns has arrived and he has made his presence known, right now he has already got the better of Randy but is yet to face Cena.

But the good thing about Roman coming through the ranks and finally stepping up to the main event scene is that he is there to cover for Cena or Orton if either of them are injured, much like how Bryan stepped in for Cena last year.

Either way, WWE do rely too strongly on Cena and Orton to deliver the goods. Both have already held the WWE world heavyweight championship in the year it has been active, but it could be time for new blood to come onto the title scene and be the real face of WWE for the future.
