Whaaaat I don't remember this at all? Obviously he managed them but I don't remember him having matches. Was this his last in ring appearance aside from the gimmick battle royal at WM?

Despite popular opinion, Michael was a really good worker. He may have been physically shot by that point but in terms of being a guy who knew what to do and when to do it, he was better in the above match than he was in the Freebird glory years.

Kinda brings us back to the whole wrestler/worker/performer thing. Hayes - not a great wrestler, but excellent worker/performer. Fair to say?

Michael Hayes and the Hardys also had a six man tag against the Brood and there may have been another bout or two. Hayes did spots and took bumps regularly on the house show circuit. I think Hayes and the Hardys were together for about three or four months. Matt Hardy later said, in a good natured manner, that those months on the road nearly killed him. Hayes still lived the Freebird lifestyle and the Hardys were along for the ride as willing and sometimes reluctant travelers when it came to hitting the bars and getting into stuff that made fodder for road stories later.

Hayes had worked the Power Pro promotion in Memphis for a few weeks prior to knock off the ring rust.

This is exactly what I thought - that's some of the best looking work I've seen from him!

I was a big fan of Hayes managing The Hardy Boyz, and I was interested in him managing Tyson Kidd too. That didn't last but one appearance or so though. IIRC Tyson Kidd tried on different managers at that time, but I could be mistaken.

Was Somthers brought in to work Hayes specifically being he was also a veteran worker?

Something didn't look quite right about Smothers' work. It was as if he was trying to look like an inexperienced wrestler even though he'd been in the business 15 or so years at this point.

That Hayes promo was pretty incredible. I've just been watching some of these. Prichard did a hell of a promo too:



Also by all accounts Hayes won the Power Pro championship around this time.
