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

I give him props.  Never heard of him, but if he's really a 'Superstar', as they say, then this is a bigger deal than that retired has-been basketball player from a few months back.

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.

It's nice to see WWE and others continue to grow up and move into the 21st century.

HawgWild: machoprogrammer: I hope King doesn't make a gay joke when he's wrestling

How do you translate "Puppies!" into gay?


"... ... ... Dachshunds?"

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.

machoprogrammer: King now just makes stupid one liners and sounds like he doesn't want to be there


I guess his heart's not in it any more.

So, that means Darren Young only likes twinks?

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.

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
