    WWE wrestler Darren Young came out as gay during a TMZ interview, becoming the first WWE wrestler ever to do so. The TMZ reporter asked Young if a gay wrestler could succeed in the WWE, and Young responded, "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." Young’s announcement comes months after Jason Collins became the first openly gay NBA player.
