Jeff Warner is an American professional wrestler, best known by the ring name J.W. Storm.

Storm competed in World Championship Wrestling most notably as a member of the tag team Maximum Overdrive with Tim Hunt.[1] He also had stints in Pacific Northwest Wrestling and Pro Wrestling America, winning the tag team championships in both promotions.

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Warner started wrestling in 1989 in the NWA's Pacific Northwest territory. He formed a tag team with Art Barr who was using a "Beetlejuice" gimmick called "The Juice Patrol" with Warner becoming "Big Juice". They feuded with Ricky Santana and Curtis Thompson, who formed the tag team of "U.S. Male", until Warner was forced to leave the promotion in a "loser leaves town" match on June 30, 1990.

He also wrestled in Pro Wrestling America during the late-80s and early-90s and won the tag team titles as one half of Maximum Overdrive with Tim Hunt defeating Matt Derringer and Bret Derringer on June 24, 1989. Holding the titles for nearly a year, they finally lost them to the Steiner Brothers in Atlanta, Georgia on September 17, 1990.

Warner, who had previously won the PWA Iron Horse Television title on April 5, 1990, would continue defending the title before jumping to the National Wrestling Alliance in June.

In mid-1990, he arrived in WCW as one half of Maximum Overdrive with Tim Hunt but their stay was short-lived after their loss to the then NWA/WCW U.S. Tag Team Champions Steiner Brothers at Clash of the Champions XII on September 15, 1990.

He soon began wrestling under the name "J.W. Storm" and wrestled against veterans including Terry Taylor and Brad Armstrong, losing to him at Halloween Havoc '90 on October 27.

In February 1992, Storm also had tryout matches for the World Wrestling Federation against The Undertaker, "The Model" Rick Martel, The Warlord and Hercules although he defeated Kato of the The Orient Express several times at house shows between February 8 and March 2.

Personal life[edit]

Warner credits his wife Jennifer with saving his life from drug and alcohol abuse. He became a born again Christian and, in 2002, an ordained minister through the International Ministerial Fellowship. He now tours the United States with his Ultimate Strength show that combines preaching with feats of strength, such as breaking through a stack of concrete blocks. Warner and his wife have four sons.[2]
