John Cena has made a career out of snatching victory from the jaws of defeat in WWE, but his personal life is not going to look quite as shiny as his WWE record, as he and his wife of nearly three years are reportedly headed for divorce.
According to the Miami Herald, Cena has filed for divorce from his wife, Liz Huberdeau. The two were married in July 2009. The report also says that Huberdeau has gone to the same lawyer who handled Linda Hogan's divorce from Hulk Hogan.
The soon-to-be-ex-Mrs. Cena has armed herself with powerful Miami attorney Raymond Rafool, best known for going head to head with Hulk Hogan in his nasty divorce battle against ex-wife Linda. In that case, Rafool allegedly took Hogan for 70% of his assets. Huberdeau hopes for something similar, but it's not going to be easy. Cena, worth over $18 million, has a 2009 prenup that is said to include the ability to take back all gifts and presents.
Given that Cena has a prenuptial agreement, the odds of him getting taken to the cleaners the way Hogan did are slim to none. Fans love to equate Cena to Hogan, for better or worse, and this is yet more ammunition for them to use.
If there have been problems bubbling over in Cena's personal life for some time, it hasn't shown in his work on television. He has had arguably the two best months of his career, starting with The Rock at WrestleMania and continuing at Extreme Rules against Brock Lesnar.
It will be interesting to see how this whole situation plays out, as it does not seem like it is going to be amicable considering who Cena's estranged wife has hired to represent her.
