WWE Legend Shawn Michaels Says “Being Gay Is Very Eighties”, Still Very Hip

Gays! Can’t you do anything original anymore?!

TMZ has been pulling the Darren Young bandwagon in front of every WWE star walking through an airport recently, and they’ve finally caught one that isn’t very impressed by all the “hoopla.” In case you missed it, Darren Young became the first openly gay WWE Superstar last week, and mostly everyone has been supportive.

Here is “WWE legend” Shawn Michaels, who when confronted by a TMZ photographer says “being gay in this business is very eighties.” To his credit, he says that there have been closeted gay wrestlers in the WWE for decades. He says “it’s hip to be gay right now,” and doesn’t think the news will hurt Young’s career.
