John Cena sued by Ford Motors
WXYZ out of Detroit reported on Thursday that WWE star John Cena is being sued by Ford Motor Company in the US District Court due to Cena violating an agreement.
The suit says Cena was given a $500,000 custom Ford GT car for at least two years as part of an ambassador agreement with the Ford brand. Ford’s claim is that Cena, after receiving the car, quickly sold it into liquidation to pay for expenses.
When asked for a statement, Ford issued the following.
“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.”
Cena then issued a response to Ford’s statement with the following.
“I completely understand and as stated am willing to work with Ford to make it right. My sincerest apologies.”
More teases of “Broken” Matt Hardy
There have been continued teases of the previous “Broken” Matt Hardy character making its way on WWE television since the initial angle was shot on this past Monday’s episode of RAW following Hardy’s match with Bray Wyatt.
The Twitter account of Hardy’s drone, Vanguard-1, posted the following on Thursday.

Hardy followed with a YouTube video on Thursday night in where he calls out for his gardener, Senor Benjamin.
As noted earlier this week, Anthem – who originally owned all the trademarks to “Broken” Matt Hardy and the Broken Universe – announced that they would be amending contracts and allowing all former and current talent the rights to use their Impact characters outside of the company going forward, thus allowing Hardy the ability to use the “Broken” character in WWE. It would appear Hardy will be using the term “Woken” in WWE.
