WWE Superstar Darren Young told TMZ yesterday that is openly gay. Young was arriving in Los Angeles yesterday for the week long WWE Event, Summer Slam, when he announced it to TMZ.

WWE says that they are proud of Young for coming out about his sexuality, and will continue to support the superstar. For the record, Darren is now the first openly gay superstar ever at WWE. Like WWE, we too salute Darren for coming out and being open about who he truly is.

WWE will be in Baton Rouge October 1st for a WWE Smackdown taping.

Here is the announcement Young made while arriving at LAX.
