WWE wrestler Darren Young became the first active pro wrestling star in a major organization to announce that he is gay.
The cameraman asked Young if he thought a gay wrestler could be successful in WWE, and Young gave an answer the cameraman was not expecting.
“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 was then asked how he thought his fellow wrestlers would take the news.
“We’re all adults. All sports are physical. When I come to work, I come to work,” he said. “Business is business. Some people might not like it, and some people will like it.
“I’m happy with who I am. I’m comfortable with myself. I’m hoping to be able to make a difference. It’s very important to me that people understand that someone’s sexual preference doesn’t really matter.”
WWE released the following statement soon after Young’s announcement: “On TMZ this morning, WWE Superstar Darren Young revealed to the WWE Universe that he is gay. WWE is proud of Darren Young for being open about his sexuality, and we will continue to support him as a WWE Superstar.”
well he told ya’ll.
i doubt anyone will have an issue with him coming out the closet.
