He is known for his appearances with World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment (WWF/E) as Hugh Morrus; he wrestled under his real name in WWE from 2002–2004. DeMott also performed as Crash the Terminator in both Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) and Japan. He was most recently the head trainer for WWE’s developmental system NXT until his resignation in 2015 following allegations of misconduct, which he denied.

Generally used as a jobber to the stars in WCW, he attained championship success during the promotion’s dying days in late 2000 and early 2001, holding the WCW United States Heavyweight Championship twice and the WCW World Tag Team Championship once with Alex Wright. After an unsuccessful stint as a performer in WWE, DeMott retired from in-ring competition and transitioned into the role of a trainer for the company’s Tough Enough program, on which he became known for using a rough, controversial style in handling trainees, as well as WWE’s developmental territories Deep South Wrestling, Florida Championship Wrestling and NXT.
