Personally, the "top talent" that went back and forth with Vince recently, I think it was Cena. Say what you will about his character (and lord knows I've said this countless times online, and in this thread probably) but he LOVES the wrestling business. I mean come on, he knows his character is stale and creative hasn't really given him (or anyone else really) anything great to work with in (years) a long time. Sure he personally has said he doesn't want to be a heel because of the kids (which he truly gives a damn about, so don't knock him for that please!) but I'm sure over the years now he's come to creative and said "Hey, let's do this with my character, it's just a tweak but I think it'll go over great with the crowds" and they've just said "NO NEED MORE TSHIRT SALES FIRST".
If it wasn't Cena, my guess is it was either Punk (since he has the balls to talk right up in Vince's grill and all) or Big Show. Possibly Sheamus. But I don't know if he'd take the chance personally to do that at this point in his career.
