WWE Superstar Darren Young

I Came Out Because

I'm In Love!

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.

Terrible choice coming out. Theres a few places (thankfully) where coming out actually hurts your career. Of course the NFL is one and WWE is the other. If you enjoy sticking your d1ck in another mans as$hole you are beyond f*cked up and need treatment for your illness. Just say NO to any and all homos. Time to boycott the WWE until this f@g is fired.

What happens now when he wrestles a straight guy who's anti-gay & who don't really like gays & Darren is scooping him up for a slam with his hands between their legs, perhaps a bearhug or a piledriver & they just snap! Any responses?

I vote to stick every homo on their own island where they can screw each other, share diseases and let father time deal with them. After all they cant reproduce. This would be a great way to deal with this horrible homosexual issue. Just say NO to HOMO.
