Good for him.  This story is worth Millions of Dollars, I'd say.

First Ellen, now him? IS THE WHOLE WORLD GOING GAY?!?!?!?

I realize the E is gonna capitalize on the press for this but anyone familiar with wrestling knows Pat Patterson broke that barrier a long time ago. Maybe not in a public manner but at least as far as within the business and the locker room were concerned. Granted Patterson's less than stellar reputation may make him a less than ideal role model for this though

Chris Kanyon and most recently Orlando Jordan also.

His response and reaction was perfect.  Congratulation on being comfortable, Darren. Sadly, I am very nervous about how this will go over with certain audiences.

Yea I like how he didn't make a big deal about it. Prob cause the entire locker room already knew. Good for him regardless!

Now if only AW was still PTP's manager. Imagine the quotes we could meme, lulz

There are tons of other actors who are gay. What makes this guy so special?

Seems legit.

There have been a lot of stories about openly gay people in the entertainment tab.
 
2013-08-15 01:15:10 PM  
Lots of positive press from it today and good comments from within WWE, maybe now we can get a Prime Time Players push, these guys are awesome. I don't think it would be an issue with the crowds, Zeb has middle America booing his tea party persona so if they want to, they can get Darren Young over as a face there if he's good on the mic

Speaking of, Gorilla Monsoon would say that Darren Young is a graduate of the Pat Patterson school of wrestling.

/Young made a good decision... he can't be fired now, because Vince would probably fear a discrimination suit after firing the only openly gay wrestler.

I find that comments like this usually speak more about the speaker than the "certain audiences".

Really liked how he and the WWE handled it; let it come naturally on his terms and then show support.

So, that means Darren Young only likes twinks?

If you go back and listen to his commentary during the AE, you will see that he has sucked for a long time.  He just had JR to cover for him back then.

Came across this when doing a GIS for "Darren Young"

s3.vidimg.popscreen.com

That is awesome.

From WWE.com:
On TMZ this morning, WWE Superstar Darren Young revealed to the WWE Universe that he is gay. 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.

It's so strange to read this from WWE considering all the gay stereotypes and homophobia played out on screen over the years.
Adrian Adonis. Goldust. Billy & Chuck.
It's nice to see WWE and others continue to grow up and move into the 21st century.

TNA must wonder where the fark TNA was during this.

Cool, good for him.  Hopefully audiences behave.

It isnt an ROH crowd which is a start.  But I have to imagine some of those ROH fans are in the WWE audiences.

Yeah, just wait a few weeks. He'll get some kind of sodomy gimmick and Zack Ryder will take it in the poop chute just to piss off the five remaining people who remember Ryder.

People kept saying they would fark up the Zeb gimmick and they have done a good job of not going over board.  That is because Zeb is professional.  I have to assume Darren will handle this like a pro.

Cena's response might be the only good thing he's done for wrestling.

I like Cena.  He is a necessary evil.
 
2013-08-15 01:57:26 PM  
I guess the interview is new, but everyone either knew or suspected this from day one since he has been in the WWE. It's nice to see that he isn't trying to make an issue of it. I think WWE management may have acted differently if he had.

What jurisdiction do they do business in? Most places don't hadn't sexual orientation job protection laws.

WWE is based in Connecticut, and CT does have laws against gay discrimination.
