      Michael John "Mike" Lockwood was an American professional wrestler, better known by his ring name, Crash Holly (or simply Crash), in the World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment (WWF/E) promotion. Lockwood wrestled on the independent circuit, briefly for Extreme Championship Wrestling, before signing a contract with the World Wrestling Federation in 1999. He debuted as Hardcore Holly's storyline cousin, Crash Holly. He found his greatest success in WWF/E's Hardcore Division, winning the WWE Hardcore Championship 22 times and earning the nickname "The Houdini Of Hardcore" for his ability to escape tricky situations with his championship intact. In June 2003, he was released from WWE and joined Total Nonstop Action Wrestling as Mad Mikey, a perpetually angry character. He remained with TNA until he died four months later. As well as a Hardcore Champion, he was a one-time European Champion, a one-time Light Heavyweight Champion and a one-time Tag Team Champion, with Hardcore Holly (The Holly Cousins).
