Mike Lockwood got his wrestling career off the ground in California, training under Roland Alexander's school. He wrestled in Alexander's APW promotion under the name Erin O' Grady. The WWF took notice of him while pursuing a different APW talent, and liked what they saw. He came to the WWF in mid 1999 as a "cousin" of Hardcore Holly, Crash, and he also thought he was a super heavyweight. Though they were a tag team, they would constantly fight with each other during and after the matches. They won the tag team titles from Mankind and The Rock in the fall of '99, but lost it a couple of weeks later to Mankind and Al Snow. They teamed with Too Cool to beat the team of Edge & Christian and The Hardy Boyz at Survivor Series. They then beat Viscera and Rikishi at Armageddon. They went their separate ways after that, only teaming occasionally. In February, Crash won the Hardcore belt from Test. He made a statement that he would defend the belt twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, as long as an official was present to make the count. Over the next few weeks, Crash was attacked continuously by many people. Pete Gas won the belt from Crash only to be pinned by Crash a few seconds later to regain the belt. Getting frustrated, Crash put the belt up in a Hardcore Battle Royal at WrestleMania 2000 against all contenders. During the fiteen minute time limit, the belt was swtiched back and forth between the participants. Crash won it back from Tazz during the match, but was pinned in the last few seconds by Hardcore Holly. Crash regained the belt from Hardcore in a match the next night. A few weeks later, he lost the belt to Perry Saturn, who lost it a few seconds later to Tazz, who lost it a few seconds later back to Crash. Crash then lost it to Matt Hardy but regained it the next night. At Backlash, he outlasted Saturn, The Hardys, Tazz, and Hardcore Holly in a special hardcore match where the first pinfall ended it. At the annual UK PPV, Crash lost it to a returning British Bulldog but regained it from him two days later. One of the Godfather's ho's even pinned Crash for it, but he regained it seconds later. Gerald Brisco was the next to win it from Crash, but Crash went after Brisco and won it back a couple of weeks later only to lose it to him again a week later. At King of the Ring, Crash made it to the semi-finals before losing to Kurt Angle. During the hardcore match, he sneaked in and nailed the current champ, who was Pat Patterson, and regained the belt for the 10th time.

He lost the belt to Steve Blackman only to win it again from him and lose it again to him. At Unforgiven, he participated in a Hardcore Invitational, where he won the belt again and lost it again, to Perry Saturn. He feuded with Trish Stratus and T & A only to get continually pulverized. Even Blackman's aid couldn't account for Trish's interference. He introduced another cousin, Molly Holly. The three teamed up to beat T & A and Trish at the Survivor Series.

Along with cousin Hardcore, he tried to get back the Hardcore Title over the next few months, but it managed to elude him. He won the Light Heavyweight title from Dean Malenko in March, but lost it to Jerry Lynn a month later on the preview show to Backlash. When he saw Molly talking to Spike Dudley, he was enraged and sparked a Dudley/Holly feud with Molly and Spike caught right in the middle. Things intensified with Spike and Molly falling for each other, but Crash, Hardcore and the Dudleys insisted on fighting. Crash continued to compete on Jakked and Heat for the better part of the next year. When the WWE roster split took place, he was drafted to Ric Flair's Raw, still competing mostly on Heat. However, he jumped to Smackdown during the Summer and joined the Cruiserweight division.

Crash continued to flounder until the spring of 2003, where he approached the Cruiserweight Champion Matt Hardy about becoming an MFer, or Mattitude Follower. Hardy placed him under the tutelage of Shannon Moore, and Crash was dubbed a "Moore-on." However, he was released a few months later. He went to NWA-TNA, where he wrestled under the name Mad Mikey. Unfortunately, he was not long for the wrestling world, and Mike Lockwood passed away on Nov. 6, 2003 while staying at the home of his friend Steven Richards. He was survived by his wife and daughter.
