Darren Young: First Openly Gay WWE Wrestler
He’s been known to make ladies swoon wherever he goes, but it turns out Darren Young is actually gay.
The 33-year-old WWE stud (aka Fredrick Douglas Rosser) declared his homosexual preference during an impromptu interview with TMZ.
When asked if a gay wrestler could comfortably work in the pro wrestling realm, Young stated, “Absolutely. Look at me. I'm a WWE superstar and to be honest with you, I'll tell you right now, I'm gay. And I'm happy. I'm very happy."
Darren continued, "I don't think it matters. Does it matter? Does it change what you think about me? I'm happy with who I am. I'm comfortable with myself. I'm happy to be living the dream. I'm happy with myself. It's very important to me that people see that someone's sexual preference shouldn't really matter."
And regarding the fact that he gets paid to wrestle half-naked men, Young noted, "We're all adults. All sports are physical. When I come to work, I come to work. This is a business. I'm a WWE superstar. I'm there to entertain. That's what my job is and I do it well."
