In recent months, John Cena's toughest opponent was not a WWE wrestler. Cena was going through a very public, nasty divorce from his wife, Elizabeth Huberdeau. Accusations of infidelity were difficult for Cena as the top face (or "good guy") in the WWE. But the PR nightmare is over as the divorce has officially been settled.
It's terrific news for Cena. He's a gigantic part of the WWE, and his biggest fans often come from younger demographics. The last thing he needed was to get dragged through the mud during an extended divorce case.
By getting it wrapped up relatively quickly before it had a chance to become a mainstream story, he avoids any potential negative publicity that would ensue. It was a private matter, and it got handled as such, thankfully.
Cena has continued to work a full schedule throughout the process, not allowing the divorce to impact his performance. Love him or hate him, it's impossible to deny the love he has for putting on a show and wrestling, as a whole.
Even fans who have become fed up over the years with his "Super Cena" persona would have trouble finding a problem with him on a personal level.
Cena didn't want to lose any of that support from his fans which probably put a bigger onus on getting something worked out as quickly as possible. A divorce can turn into a sticky situation, something he and the WWE certainly didn't want or need.
By the time he steps in the ring across fromnext Monday night on the 1,000th episode of Raw in a match for the WWE Championship, it will all be a thing of the past.
He can get back to focusing on what he cares about most: Entertaining the fans.
