Captain Lou Albano Passes Away
I am sad to write that the legendary Captain Lou Albano has passed away. He was 76. Albano was a legendary manager who, throughout his extensive forty-two year career managed fifteen different tag teams and four singles competitors to championship status. Albano was one of the forefathers behind the 1980s Rock N Wrestling Connection with the WWF and MTV, working with Cyndi Lauper and is one of the key figures responsible for the WWF’s expansion from a northeastern territory to a national conglomerate. In 1996, Lou was inducted into the WWF Hall of Fame.
Outside of pro wrestling, Lou will be fondly remembered for his appearances on various Cyndi Lauper videos, most notably the 12 minute epicGoonies ‘R’ Good Enough, from The Goonies soundtrack in 1985. In addition, Lou starred as the live action video game character Mario on The Super Mario Bros Super Show in the live action interludes.
I think I speak for everybody when I say that we send our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Lou Albano.
