Punk and Bryan can draw huge so may be they could but they won't, because WWE will turn them heel and face, so they won't for me. They won't push them as a "forever face" like they do with Cena.
Jeff Hardy is a guy that was very popular when he battle Orton and Edge and Punk for the title. I read that he beat Cena at selling merchandise, so if he was still in the WWE and well booked, it could work.
In conclusion, for me, I would say that the guy who will replace Cena, is not yet in the WWE, event not in NXT.
