In Memoriam

On this day in 2003, the wrestling world lost Mikey ‘Crash Holly’ Lockwood aged just 32. He is probably best remembered as the on-screen innovator of the WWF Hardcore Title’s 24/7 Rule and also held the European, Tag Team and Light Heavyweight Titles during his WWF/E run. He left WWE in June 2003, having failed to recreate his earlier success in the split-brand WWE, signing with TNA shortly after. He also failed to make an impact in TNA, wrestling just 4 matches for the company before his passing. He died of an intentional overdose at the home of fellow wrestler Steven Richards, having recently received divorce papers from his wife
