WWE wrestler John Cena has a new kind of opponent: Ford Motor Co.

The man who made the catchphrase “You can’t see me!” famous will soon see Ford and its lawyers in court after selling a custom-made GT supercar. Documents filed in the U.S. District Court in Michigan accuse him of selling his $500K vehicle in violation of a contractual two-year waiting period.

“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,” Ford’s representatives said, TMZ reported Thursday.

Court papers in defense of Mr. Cena say he sold the 2017 car — and other property — to pay bills.

Two celebrities who also own the rare car (the company plans to make 1,000 for preapproved customers) include Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander and NASCAR driver Joey Logano, Fox News reported.
