Darren Young Speaks On Finn Bálor's LGBT-Inclusive WrestleMania Entrance

Former WWE Superstar Darren Young has said he was pleased with Finn Bálor's WrestleMania entrance, which celebrated the LGBT community, but disappointed he wasn't able to participate. 

Young, who was WWE's first openly gay superstar, said in an interview with Uproxx, that he is thrilled to see the LGBT community embraced by WWE, but wishes he could have been a part of the entrance.

He said: "To see those guys represent the LGBT community meant the world to me. But I'll be honest with you, man. When I got released, I was okay with it, but when I'm seeing them do that [LGBT] representation, I was devastated.

"I would've loved to have been invited just to see that we're making moves, but I wasn't invited to something that I begged and pleaded to embrace."

Bálor's entrance at WrestleMania 34 including his 'Bálor club for everyone t-shirt, which incorporates the rainbow flag, as well as several members of the WWE Universe, highlighting inclusivity. 

Young, who came out in an interview with TMZ in 2013, also expressed support for SmackDown Live's Sonya Deville, who is WWE's first openly lesbian superstar. 

"I remember watching her in NXT. I've seen her at the Performance Center. She showed me so much love," Young told Uproxx.
