WWE Superstar Darren Young just calmly came out of the closet while talking to TMZ at the airport.
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.
Wrestling is a very physical sport, where very little clothing is worn, so this is a big deal that he’s brave enough to come out.
Watch the video and see why Darren isn’t fazed at all.
