Jeff Warner is an American professional wrestler, best known under the ringname J.W. Storm who competed in World Championship Wrestling most notably as a member of the jobber tag team Magnum Force with Tim Hunt.
Warner started wrestling in 1989 in the NWA's Pacific Northwest territory. He formed a tag team with Art Barr who was using a "Beetlejuice" gimmick called "The Juice Patrol" with Warner becoming "Big Juice". They feuded with Ricky Santana and Curtis Thompson, who formed the tag team of "U.S. Male", until Warner was forced to leave the promotion in a "loser leaves town" match on June 30, 1990.
He also wrestled in Pro Wrestling America during the late-80s and early-90s and won the tag team titles as one half of Maximum Overdrive with Tim Hunt defeating Matt Derringer and Bret Derringer on June 24, 1989. Holding the titles for nearly a year, they finally lost them to the Steiner Brothers in Atlanta, Georgia on September 17, 1990.
Warner, who had previously won the PWA Iron Horse Television title on April 5, 1990, would continue defending the title before jumping to the National Wrestling Alliance in June.
In mid-1990, he arrived in WCW as one half of Maximum Overdrive with Tim Hunt but their stay was short-lived after their loss to the Steiner Brothers at Clash of the Champions XII on September 15, 1990.
He soon began wrestling under the name J.W. Storm teaming with Scotty Flamingo (who later became Raven) and wrestled against veterans including Terry Taylor and Brad Armstrong, losing to him at Halloween Havoc '90 on October 27. He also teamed with another masked wrestler as Magnum Force although they lost to the then NWA/WCW U.S. Tag Team Champions the Steiner Brothers at Clash of the Champions XIII on November 20, 1990.
In February 1992, Storm also had tryout matches for the World Wrestling Federation against The Undertaker, "The Model" Rick Martel, The Warlord and Hercules although he defeated Kato of the The Orient Express several times at house shows between February 8 and March 2.
