John Cena

Why His Marriage Fell Apart

It's becoming apparent why John Cena's marriage to his high school sweetheart fell apart -- the house they were remodeling was sending them to the poor house and the courthouse.

We've already told you -- Cena has blamed the divorce on the remodel, claiming it caused unbearable strife between him and his wife. 

We just found documents showing how bad the situation was ... one of the contractors filed a lien on the house for $110,000, claiming the Cena's didn't pay him for his work.

FUN FACT -- Remodels are one of the main triggers that cause marriages to fail.

The poor house, really TMZ? Last year alone Cena made over $20 million. We’re only six months into this year and between the normal pay he gets for working for the WWE and the movie he did this year and DVDs and merchandise sales plus the whole thing that he did with Post Cereals he may have already raked in another $20 million. But I get that remodeling their house ended their marriage but I doubt it had anything to do with money. And as far as John not paying the $110,000 to the contractor, let’s face it there are contractors that say they are the best in world at what they do and they are. And there are contractors that claim they are the best but they end up doing an extremely horrible job.

Here is another problem that might cause a problem with marrying a WWE Superstar like Cena . The man works 360... days a year .When he is not in the ring he is traveling , making personal appearances, attending charity events and who can forget those female fans not all of them are teens .

The only reason his Marriage ended is because he did not want to take time out of being the main attraction on WWE and spend time with his wife.He needs to take the Responsibility for his Failed Marriage.

These remodeling low lives rip people off to the last degree, they run you off the road in their fancy SUV's and sneer you out of the way in the towns where they buy McMansions. I am sick of contractors, mechanics, and all of those labor type people. They are crooked and wolves in sheep's clothing.


Labor rates are $75/hr. and up. Do they think they are MD's? I guess so then. But they don't even do honest work. I would rather sell my car then give them any more moeny.

Let me get this straight, Mr. Muscle Fake Wrestling Tough Guy is blaming wife because he's a woos and is AFRAID of her. He should have said, "Bitch, this is how much we have. Make it work"

I always find it disturbing when people blame events for their divorce. An event may test you. If your marriage doesn't survive, you end up divorcing because your relationship wasn't strong enough (amongst other flaws). The house didn't walk to the courthouse and file, you did.

This is what really cause Cena to split with his wife The Big Show was in bed with his wife and when he wanted to make love to her she Said "Call John Cena the real BIG SHOW" then she told her husband she is sick and tired of seeing his pathetic little show and he got mad and told John Cena wife.

For more than 4 months people around him knows she cheated on him. Forget about the money, he make a lot of money every year.
