• Former WWE Wrestler Darren Young Was Devastated Over Finn Balor’s WrestleMania 34 Angle

During a recent interview with Fightful, former WWE wrestler Darren Young talked about Vince McMahon’s reaction to him ‘coming out’, Finn Balor’s LGBTQ entrance at WrestleMania 34 & more.

Below are the highlights:

On Vince McMahon’s reaction to him coming out:

“Vince McMahon was one of the first people who reached out to me right away when I came out publicly. He talked to me and genuinely had a great conversation for about 20 minutes. He talked about how his best friend, Pat Patterson, is gay, and how he respected my decision to come out.”

On being devastated over Finn Balor’s LGBTQ entrance at WrestleMania 34:

“Vince at the time didn’t want it to be a storyline, which I was cool with. I was out and I was myself. I didn’t have to wrestle behind a wrestling promo voice. I could just be myself. I was cool with it. When I got released in 2017, I was more devastated that I was released and they put the LGBTQ colors on a good friend of mine in Finn Balor.

It broke my heart. I wasn’t invited to WrestleMania to see the moves they were making. I cried like a baby, man. I was told I was always a part of the WWE family, and I wasn’t invited.

I wish when I was a part of the company for so long they could have let me be myself or let me embrace the LGBTQ community. We need more representation. I don’t celebrate being gay, I celebrate my life being free from hate and persecution.”
