    WWE: From TMZ: Darren Young, "I'm Gay. I'm Happy."

    WWE superstar Darren Young just dropped a bombshell, telling TMZ, he's gay ... and no, this isn't part of the act.

    Darren was at LAX Wednesday when we asked whether a gay wrestler could succeed in WWE, and Darren laughed, saying, "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."

    For the record, Darren is now the first openly gay wrestler ever at WWE ... and the first headlining wrestler ever to come out while still signed to a major promotion.

    Other pro wrestlers have been rumored to be gay, but that's it ... just rumors.

    Bottom line: this is big, big news. For all its chauvinism and testosterone-driven bravado, coming out in WWE is tantamount to coming out in the NFL.

    Of course, wrestling is a little different, particularly because of how physical it is, and how little clothing is involved -- but Darren is completely unfazed. Watch the video to hear why.

    ^^ no way. The backlash against the WWE would be tremendous. Hopefully this doesn't change anything either way - but I can see them trying to run with this and making it an angle. Vince loves mainstream publicity. Good on Darren though!

    Hopefully its nothing like Orlando had in TNA... And with these rowdy crowds that have been at WWE lately, they might chant some mean things

    If they turn him face they might not, while there are still plenty of people in this country, I think the majority have accepted it but we will see, it's overseas in other countries I'd be worried about that

    Well good for him....could care less what his sexual orientation is. Yeah WWE pretty much can't do anything about it even if Vince or Hunter are homophobic (and who knows if they are)...pretty much every gay group in America will be watching closely to see how they treat Young on-screen.

    And God I hope they dont do anything stupid like with Orlando's character.

    Just keep him as is, PTP have been growing on me... I'm enjoying them more & more but I highly doubt the fans go with it

    Did Kanyon really commit suicide because WWE released him for being gay?
