Tim Storm’s Mountaintop – NWA Ten Pounds of Gold – Episode Two
As NWA Wrestling closes 2017, Ten Pounds of Gold explores Tim Storm’s Mountaintop. Tim Storm never dreamed his professional wrestling career would have his name placed among the great NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion’s like Ric Flair, Harley Race, and Lou Thesz. His professional wrestling career started later than most and for the last twenty years he attempted to break through. This story is Tim’s true story from humble beginnings to holding professional wrestling’s most historic prize.
In October of 2016, Tim Storm won the richest prize in professional wrestling, the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship from Jax Dane. Tim carries the famous Ten Pounds of Gold with a sense of pride and appreciation of the history that goes along with it.
This episode of Ten Pounds of Gold is a deep dive into Tim’s early years before he was champion, the struggles to find his identity, his first TV Match with Butch Reed, his first NWA Worlds Heavyweight Title Match against Dan Severn and the stark realization of where he sits among the greats. This episode also features historical National Wrestling Alliance footage of Lou Thesz, Harley Race, Ric Fair, Wahoo McDaniel and more.
