PHOTOS: Darren Young’s Most Badass Wrestling Moves


Yesterday, Darren Young became the first the WWE superstar to come out as gay and immediately moved up on our list of celebs we’d want to body slam us. Not only is he openly gay, he’s also openly sexy and will openly kick your ass. Be still, our spandex-clad hearts.

Young started out in the WWE in 2005 then signed a development deal as part of the first season of WWE NXT in 2010. Two years later, the strapping 6’2″ Young became a WWE superstar, as one half of the Prime Time Players tag team alongside Titus O’Neil.

Armed with an array of wrestling moves, we chose his most badass ones and gave them a Queerty twist.

Check out Queerty’s roundup of Darren Young kicking ass and taking names.

    So masculine gays do exist……

    What a stupid comment @Balehead! There are masculine homosexuals everywhere!!

    Please stop the hom•ophobia. There are all kinds of gay people, and many of the most effeminate men, and butch women, as well as trans people, have bravely put their lives on the line again and again, including at Stonewall and elsewhere, so that you can post here and elsewhere with impunity about gender stereotypes.
