Darren Young Comes Out as First Gay WWE Superstar

by at . Comments

WWE action may be scripted, but no one saw this announcement coming:

TMZ caught up with wrestler Darren Young last night and asked him whether or not a gay grappler could find success within the company. His response?

"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, Darren

As far as we know, Young is the first active wrestler in any major organization to come out as a homosexual.

His announcement comes months after Jason Collins made news for also coming out as a current NBA player and a couple weeks after Raven-Symone met some online criticism after revealing herself to be a lesbian.

Way to go, Darren!


thanks so much Stan for ur observation. I am a Nigerian and who lives there and I see that from what tv and tabloids, it is very fashionable to come out as gay in America and i understand the fact that we should all respect our fellow humans and their choices. however, I feel sad @ the fact that American liberals view the slightest criticism of homosexuality as wrong and that is so wrong. everyone must not jump on the gay band wagon. just because I don't feel good about a man 'entering another man through the exit' does not mean I am homophobic. they can fluant it all they want, that does not make their sexual preference natural.


All we need now is a gay Professional Fly Fisherman or gay President. Coming out and then what? After your out is there some sort of parting of the sky or is a yearly parade enough!
