John Cena has wrestled his way out of a lot of sticky situations, but the one with Ford and his GT is proving to be one that he can’t muscle his way out of. According to a report by TMZ, the iconic wrestler now claims that he did nothing wrong.
Towards the end of last year, Ford sued John Cena for selling is $500,000 2017 Ford GT. Why go after the icon? The thinking behind the lawsuit was pretty simple. Ford required interested buyers to fill out an application and then chose the lucky few individuals who would actually be allowed to purchase the machine. The caveat, though, was that the buyers weren’t allowed to sell the vehicle within 24 months of delivery.
Despite claiming that he had no ill will towards Ford’s lawsuit, TMZ now reports that Cena believes he did nothing wrong. The wrestler stated that there was no such restriction on selling the vehicle within two years of ownership in the paperwork he signed when he purchased the vehicle. The outlet cites new court documents that were filed in a district court in Michigan.
Cena states that Ford didn’t put the sale restriction in the final contract. Because of that, he’s asking the judge that’s overseeing the lawsuit to throw the case out.
After hearing about the lawsuit, we came out and stated that it was a bad idea on Ford’s end. Cena’s decision to fight the automaker won’t make things better for the brand.
