Captain Lou Albano Dies at 76

Speaking on behalf of the Albano family, Wrestler’s Rescue is sad to report that Captain Lou Albano  has died at the age of 76.

Lou Albano carved out his place in pro wrestling history for, as best put by Bruno Sammartino, his inimitable “gift of gab,” all complemented by his trademark rubber bands and Hawaiian shirts. Albano enjoyed a rich career as both a wrestler and manager, gaining worldwide fame as Cyndi Lauper’s father in the smash hit, “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.”

The family is currently in the process of planning funeral services; please respect their privacy during this tough time. Wrestlers Rescue will keep you updated as the family makes it available.

    I was in shock!!! I just learned about this on E news flash board. I grew up with this man. I knew him since I was Twelve years old!!! He was the most cool wrestling manager especially with the British Bulldogs (who wear and is the best Tag team wrestlers of all time! Not to mention my favorite tag team)!!

    I will miss him so much!!! Chow Captain Lou!!! and say Hi to Davey Boy Smith for me!!
