He's a professional wrestler - a term that disturbs me. I know there is a genuine sport of wrestling.
But professional wrestlers seem to be the ones made famous for playacting and overacting whether it be in the WWE in America or back in Wallasey Town Hall on ITV on a Saturday afternoon in the 1970s - I'm thinking Big Daddy and Giant Haystacks.
Anyway, I digress somewhat.
John Cena is also a car nut with an extensive collection. Here he is with his 2006 Ford GT...
...and here he is talking about it...
I think he makes a very good motoring presenter - I was quite impressed.
However, towards the end of that video, he hints that he will also be the owner of a 2017 Ford GT.
And that is why I have now heard of him.
The thing is, anyone purchasing a 2017 Ford GT must sign a contract saying the buyer won’t resell the car for at least 24 months.
roadandtrack.com are reporting this. "This" being that he HAS allegedly resold his car and Ford are now taking him to Court.
According to the lawsuit, “Mr. Cena has unfairly made a large profit from the unauthorized resale flip of the vehicle, and Ford has suffered additional damages and losses, including, but not limited to, loss of brand value, ambassador activity, and customer goodwill due to the improper sale,”
It is claimed that Ford reached out to Cena and confirmed that he had sold the car to liquidate cash to pay for other expenses.
If that is true then maybe he has some debt issues - in which case he should have maybe looked at offloading some other vehicles from his extensive collection, or tried to sell the car back to Ford who would have had no problems selling it again.
If that is not true, then he is very greedy.
In either case, the only flips he should be involved in are those inside the wrestling ring.
