WWE personality Stone Cold Steve Austin didn’t pull any punches when he spoke recently about his thoughts on marriage equality.

In a very NSFW (’cause of language) section of a podcast, Stone Cold basically said:

Any human being in America … who wants to be married … more power to them.

Austin then went on and got very angry and passionate about the topic, but the clip is worth listening to.

Darren Young, another WWE personality, came out as gay last year and the support was overwhelmingly positive. Austin’s comments, although colorful, reiterate the WWE’s stance on marriage equality, and jives with what the company had to say about Young’s announcement:

WWE is proud of Darren Young for being open about his sexuality, and we will continue to support him as a WWE Superstar.

Word.
