Given his small town upbringing, the athlete — who stands 6'4" and weighs 300 pounds — had trouble finding people who could empathize with his situation.

"I've always known I'm gay. That was never a question in my mind. But growing up, I went to Catholic school my whole life. My mom's a Sunday school teacher. I came from a small town in upstate New York. It didn't have a flourishing gay community… The only exposure I saw of any gay culture was extremely effeminate and that was what was on TV. I'm not like Jack on Will and Grace, so I'm not gay."

After moving to Florida in his 20s to attend wrestling school, the now-34-year-old thought the relocation would give him a chance to explore his sexuality. Sadly, it was "the worst experience" of his life.
