Former WWE Superstar, Darren Young was asked about his decision to come out in a recent interview with Cerrito Live and he discussed how various top WWE Stars reacted to his news. Below are some highlights with a h/t to The Chairshot.com for the transcription:

“When I came out publicly, I think it was summertime around the time of SummerSlam. And this was when SummerSlam was being hosted at the Staples Center. The summer I came out, he had a match with Brock Lesnar. And right after his match with Brock Lesnar, in catering, he was all iced up from head to toe, and he approached me in catering in front of everybody, and he told me to stand up. I stood up and he gave me a hug. And he said, ‘I’m very proud of you for coming out and being so courageous. If you have any problem with anyone in the locker room because of this, you let me know and I will take care of this.’ And he said this to me in front of everyone in catering. I was shocked! Here he just finished his match with Brock Lesnar and him coming up to me and showing me love was very moving to me.”
