Video: Darren Young tells a great story on CM Punk's reaction to his coming out as gay

Darren Young was a guest on the Sam Roberts podcast recently, the first time he's ever done a podcast. During the course of it, he told a great story on CM Punk's reaction when he came out as gay in 2013. Watch it above, read the quotes below.

"One thing about Punk is, if I could talk about him just for a second, when he had his match with Brock Lesnar in 2013 that was a couple days before I made my announcement to TMZ. After his brutal with Brock Lesnar, he was all iced up. I hadn't seen him since I made my announcement. So he came up to me in catering and he told me to stand up in front of people. I stood up, he gave me a hug, and he said 'I'm proud of you. If you ever have any problems with anyone in the locker room, you let me know. I got your back.' That meant the most to me."
