Darren Young The First (Openly) Gay Wrestler In The WWE

By Michael August 15, 2013 @ 1:59 PM

Darren Young, one of WWE’s superstar wrasslers, has announced to the world that he is a gay man. The confession came after TMZ asked him if he thought a gay wrassler could make it in the WWE. This is, after all, a hyper masculine sport mostly followed by the unwashed masses of the breadbasket states.

“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.”

This is pretty big and I applaud Darren for his big gay guts. But, come on, there is no way he’s the only gay wrassler. Have you actually watched professional wrestling? I mean critically? You have a bunch of rough trade muscle men wearing only singlets, tights, or Speedos embraced endlessly in sweaty grapples. You can’t tell me that Rick Flair has never felt the tingly touch of another man. And if one day John Cena is photographed leaving a club called The Manhole, I’m not going to be the rube who says he never saw that coming.

    Good for him, not losing it when this guy asks Tiger Jackson from Tekken if he thinks rubbing his sweaty balls up against another guy’s ass will suddenly make his opponents uncomfortable. Yes- because he’s gay (rather, now that you KNOW he’s gay), suddenly rolling around sweaty & half naked with other dudes seems…sexual somehow…
