Darren Young Says He Sacrificed His WWE Career So Others Can Be Authentic About Themselves

Michael Wiseman of Wrestling Inc. had a chance to talk with Darren Young recently. While he isn't as active in the wrestling scene anymore, he still fights the battles people go through every single day.

"I always say my fight is always bigger than in the ring, it is outside the ring fighting bigotry and hatred. I'm trying to be the voice of the voiceless when it comes to our LGBT community. Someone's got to be that superhero, and I'm going to be that superhero."

Young is one of the few former WWE superstars to come out. WWE Hall of Famer Pat Paterson is another person who is gay. Darren believes there will be more opportunities for the LGBT community to come out in pro wrestling and the world.

"I'm not that the first one and I'm definitely not the last one. I was the first openly gay WWE star to be under contract. The bottom line is that we need more representation, we need more athletes standing up for what is right. In crazy times like this we need to have each other's back. I always say none of us are as strong as all of us.

I came out and I made a sacrifice. I sacrificed my career so others can live their authentic selves. Like I said, I'm going to be that superhero no matter what. I'm not going anywhere."
