The 50 greatest stars in WCW history

#38 Michael "P.S." Hayes

Very few people in the wrestling industry are made like Michael Hayes. An endlessly talented individual, his presence through the years in WCW was multi-dimensional as he found success as an in-ring competitor, manager, musician and commentator.

Of course, “P.S.” was universally known as the anchor of The Fabulous Freebirds. Breaking away from original partners Terry Gordy and Buddy Roberts, Hayes found success in the tag team arena in 1989 with a new Freebird by the name of “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin. Together, the cocky duo battled legendary teams like Doom and The Steiner Brothers during their reign as WCW Tag Team Champions.  Hayes’ tremendous in-ring career ultimately came to an end in WCW, but the proud southerner kept it rocking until the final bell rang. — HOWARD FINKEL
