Former WWE wrestler Darren Young was just released from his contract in October and he’s now getting ready to start working on the independent circuit.
Young will go by his real name and will be referred to as “Mr. No Days Off” Fred Rosser, according to Wrestling Inc.
Rosser will be working his first indie event with WrestlePro on March 9th in Union, New Jersey. He will not only make his first appearance for the company, but he will also get in the ring and wrestle. Rosser will also take time to meet with his fans at the event.
The next day, Rosser will be appearing at The Big Event in Queens, New York. He will also be making an appearance for Warriors of Wrestling promotion in Staten Island, New York. This is certainly a way for Rosser to get back home, since he was born in Union, New Jersey.
Rosser is well-known for coming out in April of 2013 which made him the first wrestler to ever come out while working for a large promotion. WWE ended up releasing a statement in support of him after he made his announcement. Hopefully other sports organizations can support their athletes the same way in the future.
Rosser has been dating his boyfriend Niccolo ‘Nick’ Villa since 2011, and it turns out that his mother is gay as well.
Rosser started training to become a pro wrestler in 2002 and then hit up the independent circuit until he signed with WWE’s developmental company Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW).
In 2010, Rosser competed on the first season of WWE NXT and was mentored by CM Punk. He then ended up getting signed to WWE’s SmackDown brand in 2012 and competed there until his contract ran out this fall.
Rosser has appeared in the widely popular video WWE 2K14 and was in every game, including this year’s installment, WWE 2K18.
During his time with WWE, Rosser won the WWE Tag Team Championship with Titus O’Neila and a Slammy Award for Shocker of the Year in 2010, when he was with Nexus.
