Surprisingly, and unlike other stars, Young took full responsibility for his actions.
He stated the following over several tweets:
@darrenyoungwwe: To the WWE Universe, I sincerely apologize to my loving family, my supportive friends back up North, my peers. who I have an incredible amount of respect for top to bottom and to all my fans that support #DYoung; I hear u loud and clear #WWE.
I take full responsibility for my actions as this will never occur again. I love the @WWE and the worst thing you can do to me is keep me off that stage where I own it in that ring!
I accept this set back as a normal part of living; making a mental a note of it as a lessoned learned! D Young
Seems like Young actually in some way gets it.
Sadly, it took a suspension to make him realize that he needs to keep on the straight and narrow.
