(Los Angeles, CA) WWE star Darren Young is the first openly gay WWE star.
Young made the revelation very casually during an interview with TMZ.
After being asked if a gay wrestler could succeed in WWE, Young 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.”
WWE superstar John Cena made it clear he was very happy to hear that Young made the decision to come out publicly.
Cena also said he did not think the announcement would have a negative affect on Young’s career or interaction with other WWE stars.
