Darren Young On CM Punk Helping Him When He Came Out Of The Closet

WWE Superstar Darren Young recently appeared on SIRIUS/XM radio personality Sam Roberts’ podcast to talk about a number of subjects, including the internal reaction in WWE to the news that he was a homosexual, particularly how former WWE Superstar CM Punk handled the news.

“Him and I had like a love/hate relationship,” Young said of Punk. “He was a little rough around the edges, but to be honest with you, one thing about Punk if I could talk about him for just a second, when he had his match with Brock Lesnar in 2013 that was a couple days after I made my announcement to TMZ.”

Young continued, “After this brutal match with Brock Lesnar, he was all iced up and I hadn’t seen him since I made my announcement. So he came up to me in catering and told me to stand up in front of people. I stood up and he gave me a hug. He said, “I’m proud of you and if you ever have any problem with anyone in the locker room, you let me know. I have your back.”
