What the What?

"Gay Wedding" on Smackdown?

I'm curious enough to read the first paragraph or two of the article, but not curious enough to watch or find out what it's all about. Can I assume it's homophobic under whatever gloss of inclusion it presents? Like 80's hair metal, wrestling has always seemed to me to be a puzzling display of cartoonish machismo meant to reassure conflicted homosexuals that they are in fact straight and 'normal' and all super-macho het-men just happen to like guys who tease their perms, wear makeup, and cross dress or preen themselves into a state of over-muscled, tights-wearing glistendom in order to grapple with one another. I guess I'm just surprised the wrestling establishment would flirt with revealing that their product is openly gay. (As I write this, I shudder to think what the referral log is going to look like for the next couple of days.)
