Johnathan Lane is an American wrestler currently working for X-WCW, where he wrestles under the stage name of The Real Deal. He is a member of the nTo Red and competes as a face. His style is that of a straight power brawler.
Lane first entered the world of wrestling through the IDT (Indiana Developmental Territory), the little league of the X-WCW. He made a big impact there as an aggressive brawler with a huge array of moves. He developed his heel character of TRD after a trainer told him he was "closing in on going to the real deal". Lane took those three words and made a character around them; a self-centered heel that wasn't afraid to speak his mind.
Lane began training as a monster heel after a speech from now close-friend and mentor D-Extreme. D-Ex was quoted as saying he "wanted a character to deliver him beer, and make sure they had something to drink to," before toasting the IDT talents. This event pushed Lane to become a much more focused wrestler, both in the ring and on the mic. Eventually, Lane was called up to the main roster to be in his "dream team"; the nTo.
