Darren Young has told People Magazine that he was terrified of losing his friends and his job from his spur of the moment decision to come out. As if any WWE midcarder would even dare to sneeze in front of Vince McMahon without his prior approval.

Seven weeks on Darren Young becoming the first openly gay active WWE wrestler is still garnering the company good publicity, despite it being a carefully orchestrated PR stunt green lighted beforehand by management.

Knowing that his position is based on sticking to the approved script, Young is continuing to work the media about being absolutely terrified about what would happen by his own personal decision to come out. This time it was Patrick Gomez of People Magazine who got fed the romantic fiction:

"I was terrified of losing friends, losing my job, just everything. I had no idea what would happen if I came out."

That TMZ reporter just happened to be in the right place, at the right time, with the right question, I tell you:

"There came a point in my life where I just wasn't happy living a double life. It was spur of the moment, and I said what I said and I was confident. But when I left, I said to myself, 'What the hell did I just do?'"

But what so easily could have been a nightmare, became a dream come true with everyone accepting his sexuality with open arms:

"They all embraced me, and that was just shocking to me. I truly love them. It was such a relief. I'm not hiding anymore and I'm living the dream."

Not to mention an improved push and getting enhanced job security for an expendable midcard act. Fancy that! Someone please pass me the barf bucket.
