Timothy Paul Brooks (born December 4, 1947) is a retired American professional wrestler, better-known by his ring name "Killer" Tim Brooks. He competed in North American regional promotions including the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), Pacific Northwest Wrestling (PNW) and World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW) during the 1970s and 1980s.

Professional wrestling career[edit]

He worked as a mid-level heel often being managed by Skandor Akbar, Armand Hussein and Gary Hart. Long before the infamous 1988 angle in the WWF between Hulk Hogan, André the Giant and Ted DiBiase over the WWE Championship, Brooks had, in 1983, sold his NWA National Heavyweight Championship to Larry Zbyszko some time after winning it from Paul Orndorff. In this case, however, no interference from Zbyszko had happened during the match; and Zbyszko, despite being obviously stripped of a title he had not legitimately won, won it legitimately in the tournament that subsequently took place.

Brooks left Georgia and went to Southwest Championship Wrestling (SCW) in San Antonio, Texas. During he's stint in SWC Brooks won the SCW Southwest Heavyweight Championship on two occasions.

Went to work in Puerto Rico for the World Wrestling Council and feuded with Hercules Ayala.

Brooks retired in 1997, and is the owner and head trainer of the North American Wrestling Allegiance Pro Wrestling School, a training facility for his promotion N.A.W.A Pro Wrestling which runs televised shows in the Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas area.[1]
