WWE Superstar Darren Young Is First Gay Wrestler To Come Out Of The Closet
(Source) WWE superstar Darren Young just dropped a bombshell, telling TMZ, he’s gay … and no, this isn’t part of the act. 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. Of course, wrestling is a little different, particularly because of how physical it is, and how little clothing is involved — but Darren is completely unfazed. Watch the video to hear why
Vince McMahon you sandbagging son of a bitch you. It’s 2013, what’s hot on the streets? What are all the cool kids doing these days? Being gay. And Vince knows it. He’s a businessman above all else. Gay is so fucking in right now so why not have a gay wrestler. Absolutely brilliant. Vince, I don’t know how you’ve done it, but you’ve done it again. Scooping up that gay market in your big burly arms. Gay, straight, bi, black, white, all that matters is the color green. Genius.
I said this the other night but there is not one single person in this world who struts better than Vince. I could watch him walk all day long and never get bored.
Cue all the haters saying wrestling is so gay, wah wah wah. Yeah bro, I know that, it’s literally gay, super gay, and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
