    thats not to shocking darren seems like it then again but him being open about it might not be best for his career. also hes getting the rep of being the first gay wwe superstar ,didnt kanyon admit he was gay well he was with wcw or wwe, i know orlando jordan did

    • Jay

      I think in today’s world this will help his career big time.This brings good publicity for the WWE and maybe a new audience.Pat Patterson was the first openly gay wrestler so TMZ is way off with that.

  • Joe Musolf

    Well he can forget about being successful in WWE now lol, Vince is against gays and I’m pretty sure he’s racist too…

    But props for Darren for being brave enough to come out.
