Ford Motor Company has filed a lawsuit against American professional wrestler John Cena in the U.S. District Court of Michigan. The company claims Cena violated his contract when he sold his custom-made 2017 Ford GT supercar.

In the lawsuit, Ford says Cena was obligated to maintain ownership of the vehicle for two years but turned around and "flipped" for a large profit shortly after getting the car. The lawsuit reads, "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."

The lawsuit also included Cena's reply when informed that he violated the contract, "I completely understand and as stated am willing to work with Ford to make it right. My sincerest apologies." The company also claims Cena sold the supercar to liquidate it for cash needed for expenses.
John Cena started his professional wrestling career in 1999 with Ultimate Pro Wrestling before signing a developmental contract with the World Wrestling Federation. Cena has also had a career in acting starring in feature films such as The Marine in 2006 and Trainwreck in 2015.
