'Lord' Alfred Hayes

Television Personality

Alfred George James Hayes was a professional wrestler better known for his work as a broadcaster and commentator in the WWF.

With the coming of the 1970s, Hayes decided that he had done all that he could in Britain and turned his attention to the bigger wrestling market of North America. He had a great deal of initial success in American wrestling and won a number of top titles in different promotions. This resulted in Vince McMahon signing him to a contract as a wrestler and he made his debut in the WWF as Lord Alfred Hayes. However, after only a year in the company he was forced to retire due to wrestling induced arthritis.

With the coming of the 1970s, Hayes decided that he had done all that he could in Britain and turned his attention to the bigger wrestling market of North America.

This resulted in Vince McMahon signing him to a contract as a wrestler and he made his debut in the WWF as Lord Alfred Hayes. However, after only a year in the company he was forced to retire due to wrestling induced arthritis.

This was not the end of Hayes career, however, as the WWF signed him once more, only this time to be a commentator, announcer and erstwhile manager. In this role, Hayes became a stalwart of WWF TV and often the victim of slapstick humor jokes. He became Vince McMahon's sidekick on Tuesday Night Titans, he was the opening announcer for Prime Time Wrestling and was a frequent presenter of WWF videos.
