No, for real this time. Please don't banish this. He actually came out, as in real life. First time I've ever heard of a wrestler doing this publicly, so seemed like news to me. If not, apologies.

It's at least as worthy of discussion as Marty Jannetty's Myspace account...

I don't think Pat Patterson has openly admitted it, but it is well known around wrestling.

I still say this Kanyon thing is a work.

Seems like he only came out of the closet so that he could use it as a possible way to get more work. Maybe he was thinking that wrestling promotions would be lining up to hire him so that they could immediately push him in some sort of a "openly gay wrestler" angle.

Is it that far-fetched to believe that there might be ONE active entertainer -- in a genre with a "kiss my ass" club, the bronco-buster, and guys in tights taking turns pinning one another -- who is gay?

I like wrestling and all that, but since homosexuals are highly represented in the overall entertainment industry... the idea of a "real" gay wrestler doesn't strike me as particularly outlandish. And if Kanyon is doing this strictly as a gimmick, I don't think it'll be too effective, since homosexuality is rather mainstream now. The shock value is there, but it's minimal. Just give him a cowboy hat and call him Brokeback Kanyon.

Now, if Kanyon were to claim that he was about to undergo a sex-change operation to become a female, got fake tits, and demanded to compete against women, then we might have something different here...

Sure it is possible. There is even an openly bisexual wrestler in WWE right now. I am sure there is at least one on all wrestling locker rooms around the country.

It was just the way he went about it. On an indy show he said "Kanyon" was gay then asked if that meant "Chris Klucsarits" was gay also. He said he wouldn't answer that question but allow us to decide. For that reason alone I think it is still a work.

I assume you are talking about Orlando Jordan? I thought that was just for an angle?

In a genre where the most popular star in years would frequently offer to insert a variety of objects into the anuses of his opponents? Where one of the most consistently popular moves of the past five years was one man rubbing his thong-clad butt into the face of another man? Where a wildly successful catchphrase of the late 90's was an invitation to perform oral sex on a man? Where themes of BDSM run rampant? Where for a time there was a tag team consisting of two men representing literal wrestling penises? Where the performers will target their opponent's groin frequently and enthusiastically?
Nah.

I think people are just misinterpreting the news item Meltzer reported awhile back.

The idea was tossed around not too long ago to make Orlando Jordan's character bisexual, and give him both a male and female love interest. There was speculation that the female character was going to be portrayed by Trinity. It seems that idea has either been shelved indefinitely or at the very least postponed until after Wrestlemania.
