He didn’t think all that much when he was filming – until he realised nobody actually knew he liked guys.
Despite being nervous someone from his wrestling world would find it, he decided to let his boyfriend post the video.
“It was this past fall and I was three months into a relationship with my boyfriend, Michael Pavano”, he told OutSports.
“Mike and I had uploaded a video to YouTube on his channel called ‘The Laughing Challenge,’ where he described me as his boyfriend.
“The video was a blast to do, but I worried that someone from the wrestling world would stumble across it and learn my secret. I decided to let it be posted anyway.”
A few weeks later one of his racing pals spotted the video, and he came out to them.
They were most annoyed he hadn’t told him he has a boyfriend already, but didn’t care he was gay.

“After hitting send, I immediately turned off my phone.
