John Cena Sued

And I Want Him to Pay Up

John Cena's marriage-ending home remodel just got worse -- 'cause a construction worker claims he was so badly injured on Cena's watch ... it left him unable to work.

The construction worker, Dale Ducharme, is suing the wrestler (but not John's ex) ... claiming he fell off a crappy scaffolding provided by the wrestler back in '10 during the remodel of Cena's Florida home.

Ducharme says the scaffolding was defective or damaged ... and it was the ex-WWE champ's responsibility to make sure the equipment was safe.

Ducharme wants more than $15k to cover the pain, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, yada yada yada.

A rep for Cena had no comment.

Check out the clip below -- it's not an actual re-creation ... but you get the idea.

If it wasn't safe he should not have climbed on it. Probably sues the hammer maker for hitting his own thumb next.

Doesn't quite work that way. The contractor has to have workmans comp insurance. If hes injured on the job it goes through that. john can easily get it thrown out. Or even counter sue and win. If the contractor doesn't have workmans comp etc he can have his license yanked, fines, etc.

What workman requires a homeowner to provide scaffolding for a job he is doing? I have never provided people I hire with the equipment to do their jobs. And $15K is all he wants? This story sounds all kinds of messed up.

Cena woudl probably just give him 15 grand to shut up. It's chump change to Cena, literally, since the worker sounds like a real chump.

Couple of things.... This guys a fraud if he's only asking for 15k. No way in hell would that cover what he's listed. And it says HE fell. How? Did he collapses or was he doing soming unsafe? Also why file now almost 4-yrs later. IS it because John has E network show? 15k is pocket change with this guys net worth. Fraud

This guy is so full of crap. 1. the home owner doesn't supply the scaffolding. The contractor's do. and they are supose to have insurance for things like this. So how can he even remotely sue John Cena for his own stupidity? He's a Fraud, and he'll lose his Butt in court any how.
