Tim Horner started wrestling in 1978 in the Alabama territory.
In 1984, while wrestling for Jim Crockett Promotions, he formed The Lightning Express with Brad Armstrong. They won the Universal Wrestling Federation tag team title in 1987, defeating Sting and Rick Steiner. They also won the National Wrestling Alliance's National Tag Team title. Horner wrestled briefly with the WWF as a jobber in singles matches.
In the 1990s, Horner wrestled for World Championship Wrestling as the masked Star Blazer, and for Smoky Mountain Wrestling (SMW). In SMW, he also played the original Kendo the Samurai (a masked samurai gimmick, also used by Scott Antol, Brian Logan, Dave Pillman and others) managed by Daryl Von Horn. Horner was co-owner of SMW, with Jim Cornette, until the two had a falling out. Thereafter, he competed in WCW as a jobber (sometimes teaming with Armstrong).
Horner is married to Allison and has two daughters.
