John Cena just learned that Darren Young came out as the first openly gay WWE superstar ... and Cena tells TMZ he couldn't be happier for the guy.

"Oh wonderful," Cena said ... "I know Darren personally. Darren's a great guy. That's a very bold move for him. And congratulations for him for actually finally doing it."

Cena says he's proud of his friend ... especially because he has a brother who is gay and he knows how tough it can be to come out.

As for the WWE, Cena says he doesn't think the organization will care one way or the other -- and that's a good thing.

"For us, it's entertainment ... and if you're entertaining you shouldn't be judged by race, creed, color or sexuality ... as long as you're entertaining."

Try this again.Sexual deviant pervert?REALLY!!My daughter had the strength to know her sexuslity as a teen and she encouraged others who were bullied at school on all levels not just sexuality she has COMPASSION unlike some if you!!!My town is as much gay as it is straight and who cares!!!Im glad they can now come clean and not hide it in shame or commit suicide over depression caused from closet truth!!!As for perverts in Atlanic Canada I think Catholic Priests pretty much claim that title.Our concern right now should be why young men feel the need to break almost every bone in a 3month olds body or shake a 4 month old to a vegetated state,when moms away???So far havent heard of a gay person doing harm but the Priests!!!

Does this mean he is the next to come out of the closet? It's become the cool thing now to declare to the world you are gay. We live in a sicko world.
