Lord Alfred Hayes

I was just skimming around stuff during lunch and I found out that Lord Alfred Hayes, died yesterday at the age of 77. If the name doesn't seem familiar Lord Alfred Hayes was the British guy who commentated for the WWF during the 1980s. He did backstage interviews and was the voice of Coliseum Video.

Other than being a world class announcer, he was a former wrestler, who in 1972 for Dory Funk Jr for the NWA world title. Arthritis, a car accident, gangrene and various other ailments and afflictions ended his life yesterday. I hope he is remembered on Monday night.
