Stephanie McMahon claims that Darren Young is not a gay WWE character

When the Daily Beast’s Jen Yamamoto questioned whether WWE is “too scared to go LGBT” in the headline of a recent story, WWE executive Stephanie McMahon commented and said that Darren Young’s (a/k/a Fred Rosser III) character is not gay.

“Darren Young was the first WWE superstar to really come out as being homosexual, but his character in the show is not,” McMahon said. “At least, we haven’t done anything with it either way—just yet.”

She also stated that the idea of having gay characters on WWE TV is a possibility.

“It could very well pop up in WWE because we are all about what’s relevant, and what’s pop culture, and what people want to see,” she said. “So if there is an opportunity, we might just take it.”
