NWA’s Tim Storm On Tiger King’s Joe Exotic: “I Know This Guy”

Former NWA champion Tim Storm revealed in a new Youtube video that he’s met Joe Exotic, the subject of the popular Netflix documentary Tiger King.

One night I’m just kind of scrolling through and one of the features on Netflix is the top-10 current things and #1 on the list was ‘Tiger King’ which probably would not have registered with me except underneath the caption was ‘Joe Exotic’ with a picture and it immediately registered ‘oh my gosh, I know this guy.

Storm says he was shocked to discover the events that unfolded about Exotic, although he does acknowledge how peculiar of an individual he was.

I knew Joe and knew that Joe was different. He was very open about his differences. When I heard about that, obviously shocked. The documentary goes into great depth about care of the animals and all of those things and then what he’s been not just charged with but convicted of, all of those things I never saw coming.

He later states that he was even involved with a show that served as a fundraiser for Exotic’s zoo.

So the original contact was ‘would you be willing to come out, defend the North American Championship as a fundraiser to try and raise money to feed these saved animals?
