Being the person to retire Undertaker is a big deal. You don’t want to give someone the spot and then they leave the company like CM Punk. 10 years before, when Shawn Michaels retired Ric Flair, WWE already knew HBK was a lifer with the promotion. Cena would have been a safer bet and he’s good at handling heat from live crowds. The timing of the proposal could have played a role.
