I remember him on "Wrestling Spotlight" with Gorilla. He was in the control room, talking about HBK's new bodyguard (Diesel/Nash), reporting on the house show from MSG where the IC title switched back to HBK.
Only reason I know this is because still have that episode on tape.
RIP Lord Alfred Hayes

I have nothing but fond memories of Lord Alfred. I found his commentary was of the "so bad it's good" variety. I remember one coliseum home video match between Macho Man and Shawn Michaels, this was for the WWF Title, probably sometime shortly after Wrestlemania 8, and was in Germany or France or some "international" destination. Savage was selling a knee for the duration of the match and Lord Alfred was going on and on about how impossible victory was. You know how you know the guy's gonna kick out when the commentator says "it's over"? Well, imagine hearing Lord Alfred say that Savage has clearly lost the WWF title, he should just give up already, he can get a rematch soon, and if it goes on any longer his career will be over. I didn't really detect any heel comments during the rest of the match, so I guess this was just how he called the matches. Regardless, without being able to make this funny as I describe it hear, rest assured it was quite hilarious at the time.
God rest ya, Lord Alfred.

Good thoughts going to the champ. He can so easily make this part of his schtick. If he loses time and they shift the belt to someone else, he can scream conspiracy and claim his reign never ended. I hope this isn't necessary. I hope he heels quickly....
