Paige, AKA Saraya-Jade Bevis, recently reported that she identifies as bisexual. The “Diva of Tomorrow,” as she’s been nicknamed, notably kissed fellow diva Rosa Mendes, though she’s also been seen coupled up with Alberto Del Rio. She would likely say, she “swings both ways.”
Paige was forced to retire in 2018 after suffering a neck injury, though she has recently come back around to represent the league as an ambassador. If she has it her way, however, she’ll be back in the rain someday soon.
Darren Young (Fred Rosser) first hit the WWE scene in 2005, during which he made several appearances on various programs like Raw and SmackDown. But it wasn’t until five years later that he would reveal his true self to the world. And, he didn’t just come out, he did in a fabulous, very public fashion.
In 2013, just a few days before he was set to appear in SummerSlam, he came out as gay during a TMZ interview, making him the first in the organization to do so.
Parrow made the headlines in 2017 when he revealed to the world his true sexuality. Now, he’s proud to be a gay athlete and feels he’s operating as the best version of himself. In March of this year, the wrestler married his longtime partner, Morgan Cole.
The ceremony happened in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, though he wasn’t about to let anything stop the wedding he’d been putting off for so long.
Nyla Rose was the first openly transgendered wrestler to sign with a major American professional wrestling organization, when she came on board with All Elite Wrestling in 2019. Before signing the contract, Rose was working as an actress, starring as the lead in The Switch, a 2016 Canadian series.
Despite current circumstances, she remains very active in the promotion. She just made the announcement that she signed on to work with a new manager as well: Vickie Guererro.
Sonya Deville, AKA Daria Rae Berenato, made a name for herself in the WWE in 2015, when she impressed on Tough Enough. The wrestler lives in Orlando and is the first openly gay woman in the organization.
She has come to become known in the league as “Daddy Deville,” in hopes to combat the misogynistic meaning of the term in many circles. She also launched her own clothing line recently called Rainbow Love through Heavy Heart, which centers around love, kindness, and acceptance. She is hopeful there will be a full-on lesbian storyline in the WWE soon!
