Pro Wrestler Comes Out “I’m gay. I’m happy”

Fredrick Rosser, currently wrestling under the name of Darren Young in WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment), the largest wrestling federation in the world, has publicly stated that he is gay in a recent interview with TMZ.

During the interview Young was asked if a gay wrestler could survive in the WWE and his answer was “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."

Over the years there have been a few “gay” characters in professional wrestling, but Young is believed to be the first ever WWE superstar to “come out” while under contract. Several of his co-workers have expressed their support for him, including current WWE Champion, John Cena, calling it “wonderful”. WWE as a company has released a statement on the ordeal saying “… we will continue to support him as a WWE Superstar”.
