'WWE supports openly gay wrestling superstar' and other Thursday midday news briefs

WWE Superstar Darren Young Comes Out As Gay During TMZ Interview - Knowing the world of professional wrestling, I withheld any belief that this was true. However, based upon the official statement made by the WWE, this is on the up and up:

 "WWE is proud of Darren Young for being open about his sexuality, and we will continue to support him as a WWE Superstar. Today, in fact, Darren will be participating in one of our Be A Star anti-bullying rallies in Los Angeles to teach children how to create positive environments for everyone regardless of age, race, religion or sexual orientation." 

Let's be honest. Young is the first openly gay WWE superstar, but he is not the first gay wrestler. There have been rumors of others for a long time and it is known that former long-time wrestler and WWE mentor, Pat Patterson, is openly gay and in a relationship.

In other news:
