Veteran professional wrestler ‘Killer’ Tim Brooks has passed away following a battle with cancer. He was 72 years old.
A true pro-wrestling globe-trotter, Brooks rose to prominence into that National Wrestling Alliance’s Michigan territory back into the 1970s, working under the original Sheik. He was a two-time NWA World Tag Team Champion and became a steady mid-tier heel for World Class Championship Wrestling while the promotion was syndicated nationally, but was also well-known for his work into Puerto Rico and Japan, working extensively with close friend Bruiser Brody.
1986 saw Brooks score a significant push alongside Brody into Montreal though he was also a significant figure into Georgia, where he infamously sold the National Heavyweight Title to Larry Zbyszko into an infamous 1983 angle. He ended up wrestling until 1997 when he opened the North American Wrestling Alliance school into his native Texas, with the likes of the original Awesome Kong (not to be confused with Impact/AEW’s monster heel) and NXT’s Keith Lee amongst his more notable trainees.
We at WhatCulture wish to extend our deepest thoughts and condolences to Brooks’ family and friends at this difficult time.
