In a video interview conducted at LAX, TMZ asked Young on Wednesday whether a gay wrestler could succeed in WWE.
"Absolutely. Look at me. I'm a WWE superstar and to be honest with you, I'll tell you right now, I'm gay. And I'm happy. I'm very happy," Young said.
WWE pledged its support for Young's revelation with a statement on their website.
