As noted earlier, Doane said on the micro-blogging website this week that he believes Cena is among those within the company lobbying for Randy Orton's dismissal following his second violation of the Talent Wellness Program. A Twitter user chastised Doane for spreading rumors about Cena. He responded, "Everyone is entitled to their beliefs. I'm sure his [adultery] in his marriage is a rumor by me too? Or is it truth being told?"
Doane also recalled a negative backstage encounter he had with Cena at a WWE show last November. After being asked whether the multi-time champion was good or bad to him during his time with the organization, he responded, "We were cool until last time I was there he hated me. Didn't even want to talk or shake hands. Everyone else was cool though."
Doane then posted a message Thursday in response to Cena fans agitated by his remarks: "Before I get hate tweets from Cena fans, just know I'm not lying. Have no reason too. His issue is his issue. Sure he has bigger problems #RafoolLaw."
Doane continued, "[Cena] will never respond cuz 1 its the truth everything I said and 2 he has bigger problems #RafoolLaw '#BigShow' '#Johnny' b4 #KD'struth."
Doane added, "I say things others are afraid they will get 'heat' for. I don't care. Truth is truth."
He is also not upset with wrestling news outlets reporting his Twitter remarks. "They covered everything I said. If it wasn't true I wouldn't of wrote it," Doane said.
Doane, who at one point was engaged to fellow wrestler Mickie James, says he split with the then-WWE Diva after discovering that she was cheating on him with Cena.
"Oh hell no," Doane wrote Friday to an uninformed follower asking whether he was still engaged to James. "Broke up with her once I found out she was cheating with John. #Rat."
James' relationship with Cena briefly turned into a WWE storyline in mid-2008, which included a backstage segment where Cena returned an item that James had forgotten at his place (video at the end of this post). The angle ceased once the two broke up. They, however, remained friends as late as May 2009, with James proclaiming then during an interview with GoErie.com that Cena was 'one of her road pals.'
"I hang out with John. He's a sweetheart, and he's very personable," James said.
Cena married his high school sweetheart, Liz Huberdeau, two months later. Wrestling Observer editor Dave Meltzer later implied in a thread on the F4WOnline.com message board concerning Cena and James' relationship that James was transferred from Raw to SmackDown in the fall of 2009 because she didn't professionally handle breaking up from Cena, thus forcing organization officials to separate the two from each other at work.
