WWE wrestler Darren Young became the first active pro wrestling star in a major organization to announce that he is gay.
Young arrived in Los Angeles on Wednesday for this weekend's SummerSlam pay-per-view event at Staples Center and was being interviewed by a TMZ cameraman while walking to his car at LAX.
The cameraman asked Young if he thought a gay wrestler could be successful in WWE, and Young gave an answer the cameraman was not expecting.
"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."
