Darren Young was released from WWE back in 2017, which came as quite a shock to many of the WWE Universe who expected the company to equalize on the fact that he was their first openly homosexual superstar.

Instead, Finn Balor has introduced his “Balor Club For Everyone” slogan which has allowed him to open up his character and gain the following of the LGBTQ community. Balor unveiled his new colors at WrestleMania 34 last year, which reportedly left Darren Young heartbroken.

The former Tag Team Champion was recently part of an interview with Fightful where he revealed that Vince McMahon was cool with him after he came out but didn’t want his personal life to be incorporated in his on-screen character.

“Vince McMahon was one of the first people who reached out to me right away when I came out publicly. He talked to me and genuinely had a great conversation for about 20 minutes. He talked about how his best friend, Pat Patterson, is gay, and how he respected my decision to come out.”

“When I got released in 2017, I was more devastated that I was released and they put the LGBTQ colors on a good friend of mine in Finn Balor. It broke my heart. I wasn’t invited to WrestleMania to see the moves they were making. I cried like a baby, man. I was told I was always a part of the WWE family, and I wasn’t invited. I wish when I was a part of the company for so long they could have let me be myself or let me embrace the LGBTQ community.”

Young has continued to work on the Independent Wrestling scene ever since his WWE release almost two years ago and sometimes goes by his real name Fred Rosser. His time outside of WWE has allowed him to fly the flag for the LGBTQ community, something he wanted to initially do as a WWE star.
