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.

When did men turn into such pu$$ys? Seems like true men dont exist anymore. A real man doesnt have intercourse with other men or suck on a d1ck.Would James Bond do this, NO he wouldnt. Completely shameful that modern society has turned men into homosexual, flamboyant fools. Even worse today's children will accept and look up to these disgusting individuals.

Gay Hollywood executives has a strange hold on the entertainment industry, and lord forbid if you should speak out about how wrong two men or two women having sex is. There's nothing to be proud of.

This could be the end of the WWE. Gays are throwing it in the face of all Christians who know Homosexuality is against the Highest Law on Earth. God's Law. Remember what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah? Vince might ad well put the " For Sale" sign up He might just break even.

How hateful are most of the people who have commented on this?!! What miserable, joyless lives you must have to hold views like this. I'd go so far as to suggest you have loveless lives, because anyone that has love in their life wouldn't sneer at someone else's love and say these sorts of things. BTW - the God argument - honestly, it's embarrassing to read! Please don't speak for the Christian God - who tells us to love our neighbor like ourselves and not to sit in judgement of each other... Good for Darren Young and his partner! I hope they are very happy together for a long time! Just as I hope ALL straight and gay couples have the same happiness!
