So as the story goes, a person working for TMZ with a camera runs into WWE wrestler Darren Young at LAX and asks him, “whether a gay wrestler could succeed in WWE.” And from there Young used the occasion to come out of the closet. While waiting for his bags. At LAX.
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.”
Now to be honest, I’m not really about questioning how one decides to come out of the closet. But the cynic in me (and you) looks at how Jason Collins handled it in comparison to how Young handled it.
Oh, and it doesn’t help that Young makes a living off of being a character that acts out storylines that are completely fake.
