Darren Young Comes Out: “I’m Gay”


WWE superstar Darren Young has “come out” and stated publicly that he’s gay.

Young arrived at LAX in Los Angeles on Wednesday for SummerSlam week and was asked by TMZ photographers if a gay wrestler could ever succeed in WWE. He laughed and said:

“Absolutely. Look at me. I’m a WWE superstar and to be honest with you, I’ll tell you right now, I’m gay. And I’m happy. I’m very happy.”

Young is now the first openly gay wrestler in WWE and the first wrestler come out while still signed to a major national promotion. Now, he might want to update his Twitter bio, which reads:

As comfortable in the VIP section as he is in the ring, Darren Young’s life revolves around three things — money, women and wrestling.
