WWE Star Comes Out At Airport Baggage Claim (VIDEO)

WWE Superstar Announces He's Gay
When a TMZ reporter ambushed professional wrestler Darren Young while he was getting his bags at Los Angeles International Airport earlier today, the 33-year-old ended up casually telling the broadcaster that he's gay.

The reporter asked Young if he thought a gay wrestler would be successful within the World Wrestling Entertainment organization, so Young gave it to him straight:

"Absolutely, absolutely! Look at me. I'm a WWE Superstar, and to be honest with you, I'm gay. And I'm happy, very happy."

The stunned cameraman told Young he was "flabbergasted" and had no idea the star was gay. After some prodding, Young continued:

"I guess if you want to call it coming out. I really don't know what to say it is. But you know, I'm just letting you know that I'm happy [with] who I am. I'm comfortable with myself, and I'm happy to be living the dream.

After a few more questions, Young rolled out of the airport with his luggage, becoming the first openly gay male wrestler to come out while actively participating in the sport.
