WWE superstar Darren Young was in the grip of a force more powerful than John Cena when he decided to come out of the closet ... and that force is love.

WWE sources tell TMZ ... Young told the wrestling org. he is "deeply in love" with his boyfriend of 2 years ... a man named Nick (pictured above with Young).  We're told Young -- whose real name is Fred Rosser -- has been living with Nick for some time now in Florida.

Our WWE sources say Young told them Nick was actually the driving force in his decision to come out.

As you know ... Young dropped the bombshell on a TMZ photog at LAX earlier this week.  Since then ... he's received a ton of support, from wrestling superstars including John Cena himself.  He also got a call of support from fellow gay professional athlete Jason Collins.

I just don't get it, men with men, women with women, something is wrong here, this is not the way it's suppose to be people, HELLO !!!!!!! this will never be ok in my eyes, sorry, it's not normal, and it's so world wide, it seems that in the last 30 yrs., everyone and their mother is gay, the end has got to be near, God must be so unhappy with this, I'm sure this is not what he had in mind when He created man. This is so sick.

The moves they do at home is the classic "Testicular Claw" followed by a "Gorilla Press Slam" and a "Texas Cloverleaf", if you like that way...

I understand why Harvey is making this a big deal - Harvey doesn't have the nerve to come out himself. But you need to realize, this guy's co-workers might have already known.

Vince may make an angle of this "coming out" on Summerslam or perhaps on RAW.Having said that, Young is hardly ever on TV unless it is a squash match.
