While waiting for his bags at LAX last night, Darren Young was approached by TMZ and asked if he thought a gay wrestler could ever succeed in the WWE. His response was casual, poignant and apparently history-making.
Here’s what he 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. Very happy.
In doing so, Young became the first WWE wrestler to come out of the closet — which might explain why the camera man fumbled through the rest of the two-minute interview.
In any case, congrats!
