Young says that for 30 years he lived his life suppressing his feelings. He knew he was gay for as long as he can remember, but he kept his feelings hidden over fear of losing friends. He says that coming out was the best decision he has made in his life, because he has been able to help so many young people who may be going through the same things that he went through.
He admits that he has experienced some awkwardness from certain people since he has came out, but he doesn’t hold that against them. He says if people don’t know him personally, he doesn’t care what they think about him.
Young informs that several WWE Superstars had his back when he came out. CM Punk approached him at a show one night and gave him a big hug while saying how proud he was of him. He also said that if anyone in the locker room gave Young a hard time, they’d have to answer to him. This meant everything to Young. Other Superstars like Big Show, Randy Orton and Mark Henry were all very supportive as well.
Young recalls having ‘Khali duty’ from time to time in WWE. He was responsible for driving Khali from place to place, and this often meant bringing him for food or to the gym. He says that he didn’t mind this because the company paid for his rental car under these circumstances and this saved him money. However, he adds that he was always stuck with the bill for Khali’s food.
