Update: World Wrestling Entertainment has released the following official statement: “WWE is proud of Darren Young for being open about his sexuality, and we will continue to support him as a WWE Superstar. Today, in fact, Darren will be participating in one of our Be A STAR anti-bullying rallies in Los Angeles to teach children how to create positive environments for everyone regardless of age, race, religion or sexual orientation.”
Original story: World Wrestling Entertainment superstar Darren Young, best known as one half of the tag team “The Prime Time Players,” has come out as a gay man.
The revelation shocked a TMZ cameraman, who caught up with the pro-wrestler at LAX and asked him, ironically enough, if a gay wrestler could find success in the WWE.
