Captain Lou Albano

 

Captain Lou Albano is one of the most successful managers in the history of professional wrestling.
One just has to look at the great run he had in the WWF and the stars that he managed and was associated with such as:
Hulk Hogan
Don Muraco
The British Bulldogs
Andrew The Giant
Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka
Greg "The Hammer" Valentine
Barry Windham & Mike Rotundo (U.S Express)
Wendi Richter
Cindi Lauper

Sorry Mike, But I simply can't sit quietly and let a list of managers go by that fails to mention Captain Louis Albano. Lou's antics in the WWF are legendary. His nefarious feud with Snuka and Buddy Rogers, his double digit list of tagteam champs, his hilarious television appearances, his welcome face-turn with the "Rock and Wrestling" connection all merit his inclusion here. He may have the "brain of a dehydrated b.b." from a steady diet of "unborn, virgin goat's milk," but he's a helluva nice guy. And not to belabor this point (or get started on this debate which was already covered here after the event) but I believe the great Freddie Blassie was in full support of how Vince used him in his most recent appearance. Fred's
definitely got an odd sense of humor...one need only catch "My Breakfast with Blassie" to see it in action. Finally "mad props" to the epitome of wrestling managers, our own Percival A. Friend! Gotta love him.
