WWE Superstars tweet support for Darren Young
Darren Young has revealed his sexuality to the WWE Universe and they have repaid his honesty with a wave of support.
As the first active, contracted WWE Superstar to come out as gay, Young has received well-wishes surrounding his announcement from all corners of the sports-entertainment world. While Young himself and the WWE locker room prepare for this Sunday’s SummerSlam in Los Angeles, several WWE veterans and executives have tweeted their encouragement of “Mr. No Days Off” in the wake of his historic proclamation.
