WWE Referee Shawn Bennett has taken the courageous step and decided to come out.

Bennett has been one of the main referees in WWE and has been seen officiating matches on RAW and SmackDown regularly.

On National Coming Out Day, the referee decided to come out and open up about his life with the fans. He posted a picture of himself wearing a t-shirt representing the LGBTQ community on Twitter and wrote a message along with it.

He finally decided to come out of the closet and opened up to the fans.

"Happy National Coming Out Day! Oh yea, I’m gay. Check @refbennett on Instagram for a much more thorough caption. It would mean a lot to me. Representation is important. Always face your fears. Always chase your dreams. Above all, always be yourself. It’s worth it," said Shawn Bennett.
