While claiming his luggage at LAX, World Wrestling Entertainment’s Darren Young delivered a stunning blow to a TMZ photographer by revealing he’s gay.
Asked if a wrestling superstar could have a lucrative career and be a gay man, Young, who is currently one half of the Prime Time Players tag team alongside Titus O’Neil, seizes the opportunity to make the big reveal.
“Absolutely,” Young replied, as he flashed a big smile . “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 clearly savored the surprising moment, as he continued the conversation with the surprised photographer.
“Does it matter?” he asked. “Does it matter to you? Does it change what you think about me? I guess if you want to call it coming out; I really don’t know what to say it is but I’m just letting you know. I’m happy with who I am, I’m comfortable with myself, and I’m happy to be living the dream. I’m in L.A. for ‘SummerSlam’ with WWE. You know, to be honest with you, I’m happy with myself. Some people might not like it, some people will like it but I’m here to please myself. I’m here to be happy and it’s very important that I’m happy with myself. I’m hoping to be able to make a difference, you know? It’s very important to me that people understand that someone’s sexual preference shouldn’t really matter. It should be about the person.”
This makes the 33-year-old, whose real name is Fredrick Douglas Rosser, the first openly gay WWE superstar, which will probably not sit well with this idiot.
