And yeah, that was pretty much heel Alfred – he was never blatantly evil, just more like he got out of the wrong side of the bed in the morning.
In fact, that’s a great name for him.
Henceforth, any induction in which he appears in this capacity, he will be known as “Rolled Out of the Wrong Side of the Bed” Lord Alfred Hayes.
Back in the studio, Todd hassles another employee, this one named ‘Slim’, who he says looks just like Elvis.
I’d say he looks more like George, in that he also wants to beat Todd within an inch of his life.
I mean, seriously, look at George and Slim. There’s no way, NO WAY, that the WWF went out and hired actors who looked like that. So they probably really were guys just working in the studio at the time.
Now imagine YOU were in their position, and Pettengill came in blathering all his lame comedy and outdated impressions.
Wouldn’t you want to do the same?
I mean, I want to hunt him down RIGHT NOW and do that.
Especially knowing that this is his current day look.
If I could find George and Slim, we’d make an awesome posse.
An awesome Todd Pettengill pummelin’ posse.
Back in the arena, we are introduced to George Anderson.
I’ve always felt the best jobbers were what I would describe as “doughy”, and George seriously looks like he just rolled out of the Pillsbury factory.
Here’s to hoping he takes an incredible beating.
Thinking that’s a pretty safe bet here.
And apparently this girl agrees, as she is so horrified for Mr. Anderson’s well being that she begins to eat her own hair.
I know she’s just a kid and everything, but seriously, what a weirdo.
And yeah, Yoko kills him in a pretty boring encounter, in which the only thing of note was Jerry Lawler talking about his Royal Rumble strategy of bodyslamming Yokozuna.
Which he didn’t do.
But think about how killer it would have been if HE had been the guy to show up in the helicopter on the USS Intrepid.
Next we get a promo for Headlock on Hunger, a charitable relief effort the company took part in to aid those in Somalia.
I know I rag a lot on Vince, but I couldn’t even fathom how much he’s helped various charities over the years.
I also can’t fathom how much more they would have been able to help the folks in Somalia had they not used…
…Paul Bearer and the Undertaker as spokesmen for the cause.
Yeah, you know...the WrestleCrap guy. Been here since before day 1, I have. You can hang out with me on Facebook. (I'm on there quite a bit) or follow my exploits on Twitter (I'm on there not quite so often).
Thanks, and Keep on Crappin'!
