When it comes to representing the brand, WWE always has a franchise player to do so. For the better part of the Attitude Era, The Rock has been the face of the company. Once he chose to depart, McMahons passed the baton to John Cena. He carried the brand for over 15 years before transitioning into the role of a part-timer. With his Hollywood stint continuing, now the torch has been handed over to none other than Roman Reigns.
