Timothy Paul Brooks was an American professional wrestler better known by his ring name Killer Tim Brooks who competed in North American regional promotions including the National Wrestling Alliance, Pacific Northwest Wrestling and World Class Championship Wrestling during the 1970s and 1980s.


A well known wrestler in the state of Texas, Brooks was best known as a longtime mainstay of World Class Championship Wrestling. He worked as a mid-level heel often being managed by Skandar Akbar, Armand Hussein and Gary Hart. Long before the infamous 1988 angle in the WWF between Hulk Hogan, Andre 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 retired in 1997, and was 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 ran televised shows in the Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas area whose graduates include Chris Chronic, Bullman Downs, Keith Lee and others.
