WWF Hall of Famer Captain Lou Albano has passed away aged 76. Albano suffered a severe heart attack in 2005 and has had failing health ever since. We reported the news yesterday that Albano had been put in a hospice.
Captain Lou will forever be remembered as being, first and foremost, one of the best managers in the history of professional wrestling. Growing up in the eighties I also remember him as Cyndi Lauper’s “father” in a handful of her music videos and the live-action personification of Mario on The Super Mario Bros. Super Show. Rest in peace Captain.
