Mini Bio (1)

Beginning his wrestling career in 1950 in the United Kingdom as "Judo" Al Hayes, the man who later became known as "Lord Alfred Hayes" joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1982 and retired from active wrestling in 1983. Not one to leave the wrestling business, Hayes became a commentator for the World Wrestling Federation; most notably as Vince McMahon's co-host on "WWF Tuesday Night Titans" where he played Ed McMahon to Vince's Johnny Carson. He also commentated the Hulk Hogan/King Kong Bundy main event at WrestleMania 2. Slowly phasing out from his roles in front of the camera, Hayes became the main voice for the World Wrestling Federation's home video releases. In 1990, Hayes was struck by a speeding car in Stamford, Connecticut resulting in a broken back, a broken hip and blood poisoning from all the dust and dirt than entered his wounds. As a result of the accident, Hayes required several vertebrae to be removed resulting in a loss of height. By 1993, Hayes' duties for the World Wrestling Federation remained mainly behind the camera and by 1995, he retired from the company. Alfred's health began to severly diminish; after contracting gangrene, his leg had to be amputated, and by 2001, he was confined to a wheelchair. Hayes suffered a series of strokes in July 2005 and eventually passed away at the age of 76. Hayes may be gone, but his memory lives on in wrestling fans and observers the world over.

Trivia (3)

Former professional wrestler. Was best known as a charming soft-spoken host/commentator with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). During his active wrestling days, he was a major heel.
When his left leg became paralyzed, it was discovered that he had been unknowingly living with a broken back.
Back surgery, in which vertebrae were removed, plus the effects of age reduced his height from, according to Hayes, about 6' to 5' 6". In later years, he used a wheelchair.
