Stephanie McMahon has announced that in the coming months there will be a major push to integrate LGBT characters and angles into WWE programming.  Well this is going to be interesting...Billy and Chuck better be sitting by their phones.

I can't wait to see which Diva is made into the lesbian - unless she is in real life, this will be a total farce that will make the company look even worse than they do.

I don't see any possible way, in the PG and PC environment they're going for, that they're going to make this work in front of a bunch of wrestling fans determined to shit on anything WWE tries to push in the first place.

Darren Young is already on Raw, so my guess is this aspect of his life may get more emphasis.

I seriously hope we aren't treated to yet another tired lame ass stereotype. keep Billy and Chuck at home.

If done right this could be only a good thing. I have my doubts they can pull it off right without resorting to stereotypes.

The story is starting to go mainstream.
http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2016/08/11/wwe-to-soon-include-lgbt-characters.html

The WWE will include LGBT characters going forward, Stephanie McMahon said.

Backstage at NBC OUT McMahon said, "Throughout my life I have grown up knowing gay [WWE] superstars and executives. It's always been accepted, but now it's about getting that message out there."

The former WWE diva said that the wrestling franchise will “integrate LGBT characters into our programming ... and I do think there will be an opportunity to integrate some of those storylines in the near future.”

The WWE has partnered with GLAAD.

"We've had GLAAD come in and speak to our entire writing team and give a whole tutorial on sensitivities, the right words, the wrong word [and] why those words matters. I think that with their guidance and support, we will be able to portray that [LGBT storyline] appropriately."

The Chief Brand Officer of the WWE spoke about wrestling icon Pat Patterson’s book “Accepted,” which chronicles his experiences being gay in the wrestling world. It was on the WWE Network show “Legends” that Patterson publicly came out.

“It was a reality show with a bunch of our legends, and he had such a positive response. It was so warm and supportive that he then decided to tell his story,” McMahon recalled.

The WWE did not immediately respond for comment.

When Mickie debuted, wasn't she sort of obsessed with Trish?  That's one I'd pay to see.

Oh, she must be referring to the time when Bischoff brought out two girls, proclaiming "hot lesbian action" or "HLA."  Then  3-Minute Warning proceeded to beat the crap out of them.

So how are you going to be PG when you're doing gay and lesbian story lines.

What would make a gay story any more or less PG than a straight story?

I can hear Vince Russo say 'Ratings baby, RATINGS'. Another dud in the making. Thanks Stephanie

The gayness of it.

Can't wait for videos retroactively plugging Adrian Street and Adonis' progressive angles.

Hope they don't scrub the TNT vignette off the network where Adonis makes 100 gay innuendo remarks in one segment with a florist named "Bruce".
