WCW: "Dangerous" Devon Storm

Chris Ford is a professional wrestler best known by his ring names, Devon Storm or Crowbar.

Chris Ford was trained by Mike Sharpe while still in high school. He wrestled for many years on the independent scene under the ring name Devon Storm, a name which Ford came up with many years earlier while dreaming to be a pro wrestler. He had many notable feuds on the indys, including having several matches with Sabu. After years working on the indys and a short stint with ECW, Storm signed a developmental deal with WCW.

Storm went to World Championship Wrestling where they sent him to the Power Plant, WCW's main training facility. After being trained as "Dangerous" Devon Storm, he was placed in a stable with David Flair and Daffney Unger, where was given the name Crowbar. In WCW, he held the WCW World Tag Team Championship and the WCW Hardcore Championship. He also had a memorable feud with Terry Funk that culminated at the last WCW Starrcade pay-per-view.

After WCW, he spent some time in the now defunct World Wrestling All-Stars where he and Sabu resumed their feud.

He has wrestled some dark matches for WWE on both WWE Velocity and WWE Sunday Night HEAT.

In 2003, he joined TNA Wrestling and was part of Father James Mitchell's stable, The New Church. He was let go from TNA as they were still a small company at that time and could not afford to fly him down to Nashville every week.

Chris Ford now has a full time job as a physical therapist (a job he has had since the late 1990s). He still works some independent shows on the weekends, but has relaxed his schedule so that he can spend more time with his family.
