Theodore Marvin "Kyle" Johnson, Jr. is an American professional wrestler and actor signed with WWE, where he appears on its Meltdown brand. He is a former two time World Tag Team Champion with his former tag team partner, [[Mark Semmler].

After being trained by Chris Youngblood and undergoing further training at Harley Race's Wrestling Academy, Johnson made his professional wrestling debut on July 8, 2006. He won the Fusion Pro Tag Team Championship with his half brother, Mike Johnson, in February 2007, and also toured Japan briefly with Pro Wrestling Noah. He signed a developmental contract with IWE in July 2007, and was assigned to their developmental facility, Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). He joined the Next Generation Heart Foundation faction for a short time, before winning the FCW Southern Heavyweight Championship in December 2007. Due to injury, he relinquished the championship in January 2008.

He made his IWE television debut on May 26, 2008, and in his first match as a member of the Meltdown roster, he won the World Tag Team Championship with Mark Semmler. They dropped the championship in August, before winning it again a week later. Semmler and Johnson were joined by Manu shortly afterwards, forming a faction of multi-generation wrestlers, although shortly afterwards Johnson was taken off television to film The Marine 2. Upon his return, he formed The Legacy faction alongside Semmler and Kevin McAlmond.

Aside from professional wrestling, Johnson is also an actor, making his film debut in The Marine 2, a direct-to-DVD movie that was released on December 29, 2009.
