Lou Albano passed away today at age 76. Long recognized as one of the greatest showmen of his day, the Captain had a special rapport with his stable of wrestlers that included the likes of Greg Valentine, Jimmy Snuka, The Iron Sheik and many others. He is credited with guiding 15 tag team champions to the belt, including the Wild Samoans. His managerial career rivaled that of Fred Blassie, The Grand Wizard and Bobby "The Brain" Heenan.
He could talk some shit...... here's a clip from 1984 with Mean Gene Okerlund that captures the essence of the Captain.
Rest In Peace, Lou
