R.I.P. Captain Lou Albano‏

I had the pleasure of introducing Lou many times. My wife and I even had dinner with him and Freddie Blassie and their wives. My wife liked him and even said, what a nice guy, then the TV cameras came in and asked him for an interview and Lou went into his routine and my wife was scared to death.

R.I.P. Captain, we will all miss you very much!

Legendary wrestling figure Captain Lou Albano, perhaps best known for his association with pop singer Cyndi Lauper, died Wednesday, according to World Wrestling Entertainment.

Albano, 76, was “one of the company’s most popular and charismatic legends,” the company said in a statement.

The cause of death was not immediately disclosed.

“Albano began his storied career with Vincent J. McMahon in the 1960s as one half of ‘The Sicilians’ tag team with his partner Tony Altimore,” the WWE said. “He will be greatly missed by the WWE and his fans.”

Albano, who was with the WWE from 1983 to 1996, was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 1996.

He started as a tag team wrestler in the 1950s but became a successful manager of champion wrestlers in the 1970s, according to a biography on the WWE Web site.
