R.I.P. Captain Lou.

Another wrestling great passes.

I'm sad to hear that WWE Hall of Famer Captain Lou Albano (Louis Vincent Albano) has passed away. He was 76 years old. His cause of death is still unknown at this time. Earlier this week, his family sent out a statement that he was under hospice care. They said he did not have cancer and asked for supporters to respect his privacy.

Captain Lou was a one of a kind personality who had a 40+ year career in the wrestling business as a wrestler and manager. The “manager of champions” guided 15 different tag teams and 4 singles competitors to championship gold. Along with Cyndi Lauper, Albano helped pioneer the Rock ‘n’ Wrestling movement during the 1980s that helped the WWF become a part of mainstream pop culture.
