WWE Superstar Darren Young Reveals Sexual Orientation
As WWE Superstars pass through LAX on their way to Summerslam they are bombarded by fans and reporters. One half of the Prime time players Darren Young was asked a questions by a TMZ cameraman. Here is the transcript from that conversation.
“I’m a WWE Superstar and, to be honest with you, I’ll tell you right now, I’m gay,” Rosser says in the beginning of the video clip released by TMZ. “I’m happy.”
Rosser continued: “To be honest with you, I don’t think it matters. Does it matter? Does it matter to you? Does it change what you think about me?”
Asked if this is his official announcement, Rosser said, “I guess if you want to call it coming out, I really don’t know what to say it is.”
Asked how the WWE locker room will respond, Rosser said, “To be honest with you, I’m happy with myself. Some people might not like it, some people will like it. But, it’s very important that I’m happy with myself. I’m hoping to be able to make a difference. It’s very important to me that someone’s sexual preference shouldn’t really matter. It should be about the person.”
Asked if this will change the way other wrestlers work with him in the ring, Rosser said, “We’re all adults. All sports are physical. To be honest with you, when I come to work, I come to work. Business is business. I’m a WWE Superstar and I’m there to entertain the WWE Universe. That’s what my job is to do and I do it well.”
WWE released a statement this morning through their publicist Joe Villa saying this.
“WWE is proud of Darren Young for being open about his sexuality, and we will continue to support him as a WWE Superstar. Today, in fact, Darren will be participating in one of our Be A Star anti-bullying rallies in Los Angeles to teach children how to create positive environments for everyone regardless of age, race, religion or sexual orientation.”
