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

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

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

/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.

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.

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.

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.

WWE does not call them "wrestlers." They call them "superstars." Everyone on the roster from top to bottom is called a "superstar." Young is a lower-to lowmid level guy. On TV probably every other week, sometimes every week. Rarely on PPV. Also is in a tag team. I'm confident that more people are familiar with Young than with Collins.

my friend told me that all members were vice presidents.

PistolGripPump: Why isn't this thread in the Entertainment tab?


Because if you're his type, Darren Young may Fark You. That's why.

When asked for comment, Young's tag-team partner Titus O'Neil responded "AROOO! AROOO! AROOO!" and inexplicably fell to the ground for 3 seconds.

hundreddollarman: Good for him. I think WWE has handled it really well.


Steph, in particular, has been a very focal supporter of gay marriage (and not just for that silly Billy and Chuck debacle), so her response doesn't really surprise me.

If you want to know why we still make a fuss about athletes coming out as gay, just read the comments section on any other news site this story has been posted.

Yeah, there's a reason why I stop well above the comment section on news sites.

Er, vocal supporter, not focal.

robsul82: Already Disturbed: Cena's response might be the only good thing he's done for wrestling.

Oh boy, can't wait for the cheeseball Cena speech on supporting Darren and how you're not a real member of the CeNation if you chant derogatory things at him, yada yada.


The problem with that is that Cena's fan are all too young to even understand what "gay" is.

FirstNationalBastard: /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.



Great that he came out and was so nonchalant about it.  But for a moment I want to play devil's advocate.  Vince knows he would get sued for firing him for his sexual orientation, however if there is a clause in his contract that says he can be released for not doing a work so, theoretically say they try a work where Zeb and the "real Americans" add a bit where in addition to all of the illegals ruining our country we are going downhill fast because of the secret homosexual agenda.  Granted, the majority of these guys and gals are supposed to be professionals and put on the act day in and day out, but say they approach Zeb with this angle and tell him, "do it or we will invoke the clause in YOUR contract where we can fire you for not doing a work"  Not saying Vince would do something like this, but he has been known to do some pretty low handed stuff in the past.

/Just hoping that whatever happens Darren Young keeps doing what he is doing and Linda doesn't even get close in 2014.

I'm pretty sure Vince already knew he was gay. In fact I read a dirtsheet rumor he was a few months back (not that I cared one way or the other). As farked up as some of the angles Vince runs with, he actually isn't all that racist or homophobic when it comes to hiring or releases or his personal life. (one of his best friends is Pat Patterson) While he can and will be extremely insensitive at times, the only color or orientation Vince truly cares about is of the Green variety.

Pretty much this. He only acts insensitive for the business aspect of it. Most wrestlers know which wrestlers are/are not homosexuals from their past wrestling company experiences and DY would be known by Vince since the rumors early on in his career and he was still hired. This didn't catch him by surprise. However, if he sees a way to make a dime on it by acting differently, he will exploit the storyline by any means necessary. That's how he makes his living and maintains the entertainment persona that makes him even more money.
