Darren Young reveals that Triple H once made him cry backstage
In an interview with Chris Van Vliet former WWE wrestler Darren Young revealed that Triple H once made him cry backstage:
“It’s unfortunate that someone didn’t have my back because when I was having my last feud with The Miz, I was told I couldn’t use the crossface chicken wing because it was a dangerous hold. Legit. I said I know what I’m doing, I’m not going to kill anyone. Fast forward and I found out the move was being saved for Asuka. The Miz pointed that out to me in the locker room weeks later and I was like ‘I f*cking knew it!’ It broke my heart. I’ve got pictures of him on my wall in my childhood room. It broke my heart. I cried like a baby backstage and he came over and was like ‘Darren, why are you crying?'”
Young also talked about coming out and Vince and Stephanie McMahon actually ended up being among his biggest supporters.
“It was Stephanie McMahon and Vince McMahon who really embraced me and let me know that everything would be ok,” he revealed. “Vince genuinely talked to me for 20 minutes about his best friend Pat Patterson being gay. Pat’s a great guy. I’m not a bitter wrestler and I’ll never be a bitter wrestler. Vince gave me a shot and I’m grateful that he gave me a shot.”
Darren Young also made it clear to fightful that even though he’s openly spoken about being willing to work for ROH and NJPW, nobody has reached out to him in that regard.
