"The magnificent Shawn Michaels [will take on] the vastly inferior Marty Jannetty..." Rest in Peace, your Lordship.

RIP--Alfred. Man, I have so many memories, I have no clue where to begin. Like some of you mentioned, I loved how Alfred brought an sense of class to the matches and programming; I really enjoyed his calm demeanor and real knowledge of the characters. I must say though, he had some of my favorite WWF lines/moments, ever...ahem... From TNT, Hogan, Vince, and Alfred are making "Python Power" shakes and Hogan decides to add a 3rd scoop of the protein powder Alfred: Hehehe, three! (It's just me, but I thought the way he said it was funny). Andre the Giant coming down the aisle to make sure Bobby Heenan keeps away from the Big Bossman during his IC title match with Perfect @ WMVII Alfred: WOOOOOAAAAAAAAH!!! And my favorite, from SummerSlam '91 after Bret Hart beat Perfect for the IC and goes to celebrate with his late parents, Stu and Helen. Alfred is gripping the forearm of Stu and trying to get his attention... Alfred: Mr. Hart, Mr. Hart, may I have a word with you about your son? Stu: It's wonderful, I a...(at this point Alfred just turns away as Stu keeps going on for a couple seconds). Alfred: As you can see, he's a little bit speechless. Back to you, Gorilla!

I still remember his titillating sideline reporting on the erecting (huh huh huh) of the blue-bar steel cage prior to the Warrior/Rude WWF title match @ SummerSlam 1990. Of course, I'm still equally intrigued that that PPV had a freakin' INTERMISSION. You will be missed, Lord Hayes. RIP.
