For more than a decade, John Cena has run roughshod over the WWE roster, burying any opponent who dared to cross his path. Now in the twilight of his career, the only reason John Cena isn’t still main-eventing every WWE PPV is that he’s been out-John-Cena’d by the new John Cena, Roman Reigns. Even so, Cena still has the power to bury an up-and-coming Superstar like Baron Corbin when the mood strikes him. So it’s baffling that the Ford Motor Company would think that challenging Cena is a good idea.
Ford’s problems with Cena started back in December, when the company decided to sue Cena for selling his 2017 Ford GT. Apparently, the special $500,000 car was sold by Ford only to owners, chosen explicitly by Ford, who were willing to hold onto the car for two years, presumably so Ford could benefit from the celebrity endorsement of having someone like John Cena own the car. By selling the car for a profit, Ford claimed Cena broke the contract.
However, according to a new report by TMZ, Cena has fired back, claiming that the agreement not to sell the car for two years wasn’t added to the legal contract Cena signed when purchasing the car, and therefore, like logical booking strategies designed to build the next generation of WWE Superstars, Cena was immune from the no-sell clause.
If there’s two things we know about John Cena, it’s that he always sells, but he also always comes out on top in the end. Ford should have done their homework before stepping into the ring with the 16-time champion.
