Who Gayer Than Kanyon?

Not sure how big a news story this is, but professional wrestler Chris Kanyon (formerly known as Mortis, "Champagne Kanyon," "Positively Kanyon," and simply Kanyon, announced last week that he is gay, and claims to be the first openly gay professional wrestler.

That may come as news to those familiar with Pat Patterson, the former wrestler-turned-WWE front office figure, though I suppose he's never officially come out of the closet. And that's not to mention the numerous gay-related gimmicks wrestling has churned out over the years, and the generally gay nature (costumes, rolling around with other guys, etc.) of wrestling itself. See the famous "wrestling sleaze" thread for other examples.

Maybe someone should call Kanyon if the WWE is serious about running with this "Orlando Jordan is bisexual" rumor I keep hearing about.
