"Midnight Special" RJ City, 25, 6'2", 210#, is an indy wrestler based in Ontario. His gimmick is that he's a smooth 'n' silky lounge singer--he insists that his name be crooned during intros--and he's even cut a CD RJ City Sings the Classics, on which he covers songs Sinatra and others first made famous in the 1960s.
He used to be one half of the tag team the Wild Stallions, with Joey Valentyne, till he turned heel in 2008 and turned against Valentyne. Isn't that the way it always is?
He's got movie-star looks. To my eyes, he's a ringer for Robert Beltran, the stud from Eating Raoul (1982). Under his real name, RJ Skinner, City is playing the Wolfman in an upcoming wrestling comedy, Monster Brawl, in which "eight classic monsters fight to the death in an explosive wrestling tournament set inside an abandoned and cursed graveyard" (even the IMDb blurb makes the movie sound sucky ... and yet ... I feel strangely compelled to see it).
