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."

It's amazing that people have to say what they really don't believe because of the impact it will have on their career. Some celebs fake being for homsexuality because if they were against it they would be working at McDonalds. Thanks PC police!

What are you talking about there have been so many openly gay wrestlers: Pat Patterson, Orlando Jordan, Chris Kanyon to name a few. Why are those guys getting discounted?

All men are capable of homosexual acts. Most straight-identifying acts can go with men in certain cir***stances. Almost all straight men are potentially bisexual.

Most straight men can have sexual relations with men if they become very horny. Nearly all straight guys can be with men.

Should be ashamed instead. The guy is a sexually deviant pervert. Thousands of little kids watch wrestling.

I know tons of straight guys who would go with a man if there were no women around. Why do you think straight men have relationships with other men in prison? When women are absent and men are horny, men turn to men.

It doesn't mean that these men are gay in the true sense. It simply means that they are horny.

It looks like John Cena knew that DY was gay all along. John Cena was running his mouth several hours after DY came out. Anyone one else would have said, "I don't speak on rumors" or "I haven't seen the DY video, so no comment". Cena uses this opportunity to smooch up the pride crowd. If he tells us how he really feels, he'll lose his main event status.
