"I really am living the dream and returning to the UK, whatever the reaction, really tops its off. It has been a whirlwind year or so really but I can’t think of a better way to top it off than with this tour and getting to wrestle for TNA in front of my hometown crowd. It might be a cliché but it really is a dream come true, I have wanted to be a wrestler for so long and now being able to do it, is just amazing.”

In preparations of an upcoming feud against his former Prime Time Player teammate and real life good friend, Darren Young has gone with a shorter haircut. While many are expecting Titus ONeil to be on the receiving end of the push, WWE may be elevating both performers.
Darren Young received quite a bit of media attention in 2013 when he revealed that he was gay, marking the first time a WWE star has done that. He even made an appearance on Ellen to discuss the situation. By doing that, he has been nominated for a GLAAD award.
