WWE superstar wrestler Darren Young publicly came out as gay during a spontaneous airport interview from entertainment website TMZ late Wednesday, becoming the first openly gay wrestler in the organization.
Young made the statement while at the airport baggage carrousel in Los Angeles.
When the TMZ crew asked him if “a gay wrestler could be successful within the WWE,” he responded:
"Absolutely. Look at me. Ya' know. 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.”
The response caught the cameraman off guard and caused him to stumble in his response.
"Man, that's in ... that's ... sorry. I'm kinda' of flabbergasted man. I think ... I didn't know and obviously I think that's just ... I commend your bravery," the cameraman is heard saying in the interview.
"I don't think it matters. Does it matter? Does it matter to you?...Does it change what you think about me?" Young answered.
"Not an iota," TMZ's cameraman said. "In fact I commend you even more that you would share something so beautiful and personal with me."
