    Thank you so much Darren Young for coming out with this. I personally, am not gay but I HIGHLY support even before you came out. It’s nice to have people who are not afraid to be who they are even wrestlers which is very rare. Thank you so much. <3.
    P.S He deserves a push for this! xD

    This was such a courageous thing of Darren to do. Being the first openly gay WWE star is such a big deal – although hopefully it will eventually become a common thing. I’m also glad so many people in the WWE(and thus far the company itself) are accepting of it. It really gives me hope for the future to see such acceptance!

  • Rebecca Blackett

    I wish nothing but happiness to Darren!
