If this gets a legitimate push for the PTP I'm all for the opportunistic exploitation of Young's personal life. I just really hope they don't go the flamboyant gay wrestler gimmick ala Rico from 3 Minute Warning.
This was so shocking to come out while all of WWE is in LA for Summerslam, with the entire roster commenting on Twitter within minutes of the TMZ posting. I don't think its a work, but the timing of the announcement wasn't random either.
I'm guessing the higher ups just kind of tell him to go out there and write stuff that would make those damn internet kids a-twitter. "That way, we can make it look like we actually care about what they think, so they can quit bugging us."
