World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment

1999-2001

Lockwood (now using the ring name Crash Holly) entered the WWF as the cousin of Hardcore Holly, whom he slightly resembled. He made his TV debut on the August 16, 1999 episode of RAW is War. The relationship between the cousins was strained, with the grizzled Hardcore Holly frequently threatening Lockwood. He was often seen bringing a weighing scale when he took on the gimmick of claiming himself to be well over 400 lbs along with Hardcore so that he would be considered a heavyweight. He was fairly successful, with his most notable achievement being his victory over Test for the WWF Hardcore Championship on the February 22, 2000 episode of SmackDown! Lockwood decreed that he must defend the championship twenty four hours a day, seven days a week ("24/7"). This meant that the title was permanently contested, not just in the course of sanctioned matches, and could thus change hands anywhere as long as a referee was present to administer the three count. Lockwood was frequently attacked by other wrestlers while in unlikely locations, including an airport, a funhouse, a circus, and even in his hotel room. While Lockwood was often pinned, he normally immediately regained the title from his opponent. In total, he would win the title 22 times. His most common tactic was to steal a win in one of his or someone's else's Hardcore Title match and quickly running away to the back and from other contenders. This earned him the title the "Houdini of Hardcore". Lockwood also held the WWF European Championship, WWF Light Heavyweight Championship, and the WWF Tag Team Championship (with Hardcore Holly).

2002-2003

When the WWF was renamed World Wrestling Entertainment and then divided into two "brands", Lockwood was initially drafted to the RAW roster, where he had little success. Lockwood later jumped ship to SmackDown! in the midst of a match with Jeff Hardy, shortly after Eric Bischoff, having been informed that a RAW wrestler would leave RAW to reunite with a relative on SmackDown! that night, ordered a beatdown on Jeff (who he thought was leaving RAW to be with his brother Matt Hardy). In the weeks following Lockwood's jump to SmackDown!, Hardcore Holly suffered a serious injury during a match with Brock Lesnar which some attribute to the fact that Holly was "sandbagging" Brock's moves. Hardcore took over a year to recover. The "Holly reunion" storyline was quickly scrapped and Lockwood was left with nothing to do until mid-2003. World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. ...
