Wrestling superstar Darren Young caught a TMZ reporter off guard yesterday by publicly -- and seemingly spontaneously -- coming out for the first time in the baggage claim area of Los Angeles International Airport.
The reporter asked Young whether he thought a gay wrestler could be successful within the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment).
Young replied: "Absolutely! Look at me, you know? I'm a WWE superstar and, to be honest with you, I'll tell you right now: I'm gay. And I'm happy, very happy."
The reporter stammered briefly and was admittedly "flabbergasted" by the revelation, but then commended Young for his bravery and thanked him for sharing the news with him.
