His job may be to beat up opponents inside the ring, but John Cena has nothing but love for Darren Young outside of it.

In light of this WWE Superstar becoming the first active wrestler to come out as gay, the face of that company was asked by TMZ for his reaction to the news.

“Darren’s a great guy,” Cena said. “That’s a very bold move for him. And congratulations for him for actually finally doing it.”

Cena can relate to the difficulties in making such an admission because he has a gay brother – and is confident that no one in the WWE will care about Young’s sexuality at all.

There’s only one thing folks care about inside Vince McMahon’s organization.

“For us, it’s entertainment … and if you’re entertaining you shouldn’t be judged by race, creed, color or sexuality … as long as you’re entertaining.”
