No this is not part of a WWE act, WWE star Darren Young has announced that he’s gay.  This makes him the first high profile openly gay wrestler ever at WWE. I’m happy for him and hope fans can accept him for who he is. The video of his “announcement” is great. He’s so nonchalant about it.
Check it out…



Via TMZ:

WWE superstar Darren Young just dropped a bombshell, telling TMZ, he’s gay.

Darren was at LAX Wednesday when we asked whether a gay wrestler could succeed in WWE, and Darren laughed, saying, “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.”

For the record, Darren is now the first openly gay wrestler ever at WWE … and the first headlining wrestler ever to come out while still signed to a major promotion.

Other pro wrestlers have been rumored to be gay, but that’s it … just rumors.

Bottom line: this is big, big news. For all its chauvinism and testosterone-driven bravado, coming out in WWE is tantamount to coming out in the NFL.
