Lord Alfred Hayes
Best known as the comedic foil on WWF broadcasts in the 80’s and early 90’s, Lord Alfred Hayes was actually an accomplished wrestler who carved out a solid career for himself in his native England.  Hayes would travel to the United States and won himself a handful of regional championships and would later become a brilliant heel manager.

When his in ring career came to a close he joined the WWF where he provided comic relief for Vince McMahon and company.  Hayes was not only there for his comedic skills, his air of dignity that he brought to telecasts helped raise the belief that you were watching something considered as lowbrow as wrestling.  To any 80’s wrestling fan he is remembered just as well as some of the in ring performers they saw.

Lord Alfred Hayes has now been confirmed as one of the nine Legacy Wing inductees for the WWE Hall of Fame: Class of 2018.

In my opinion, he should have gotten a proper induction instead of a Legacy Wing induction.

WWE certainly could have easily given him a proper Hall of Fame induction by contacting at least someone from his family to give an acceptance speech at a WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

He certainly deserved much better than a Legacy Wing induction due to his amazing and iconic contribution s to the WWF in the 1980's and 1990's.
