Sam Loman is an American pro wrestler better known as Kid Romeo.

After a starting out as a male stripper, Sam Loman began wrestling in 1999 in WCW after being trained by Paul Orndorff at the WCW Power Plant. He wrestled as Kid Romeo and was mostly seen on WCW Saturday Night. In 2000, he was sent to NWA Wildside to gain more experience.

Loman returned in early 2001 and began portraying a character loosely based on Ricky Martin. He formed a tag team with Elix Skipper and entered a tournament for the WCW Cruiserweight Tag Team Wrestling Championship. They won the tournament at WCW:Greed and had just begun feuding with Rey Misterio, Jr. and Billy Kidman when WCW was sold to the WWF. Loman and Skipper lost the titles to Misterio and Kidman on the final episode of WCW Monday Nitro.

Loman was not hired by the WWF following the sale and he went to Puerto Rico to wrestle for the World Wrestling Council. He returned to the mainland in 2003 and began working for TNA Wrestling as Romeo, competing in the X Division, but was not a major player. He left TNA in late 2003 and joined Florida Championship Wrestling where he feuded with Tyree Pride before returning to TNA as a jobber in early 2004. He still makes occasional appearances with TNA as of 2005, as well as wrestling in FCW and the WWC.
