The love-fest for Darren Young continues!

The pro wrestler has been a hot topic over the past 24 hours since he became the first active, openly gay athlete in WWE history, and earlier he appeared on the Today show to talk about his HUGE announcement!

While Darren appeared to be calm and cool when he casually came out in front of the cameras, he admits that he was terrified about his peers finding out about his personal life, but luckily he has been getting nothing but love from his fellow wrestlers!

He also says Jason Collins was a huge inspiration in his decision to come forward, and he says the trailblazing NBA forward has even reached out to him to give him some advice on how to handle the situation! Now he's hoping that he can also be a role model for other athletes who have been afraid to come out!

We're so glad to see all of the support Darren has been getting, and it's great to see the sports world openly talking about homosexuality in a positive light!

Ch-ch-check out the full interview (above)!
