He tells Tmz, "I know Darren personally, he's a great guy. That's a very bold move for him and congratulations for him for actually doing it, good for him."

Cena is convinced Young's personal confession will not change anything for him in regards to his relationships with fellow wrestlers, as long as he continues to perform to his usual high standard.

He says, "It doesn't affect his work, he's a wonderful worker in the ring... It's all about being professional; Darren Young is a consummate professional. I'm actually proud of him... Kudos to him for being, I believe, the first (openly gay wrestler)...

"For us, it's entertainment and if you're entertaining, you shouldn't be judged by race, creed, colour or sexuality, as long as you're entertaining, that's the most important thing."
