    Default Captain Lou Albano, Dead: age 76

    Captain Lou Albano Dies

    Popular Wrestler, 80s Personality, was 76
    Font size Print Share 0 Comments (CBS) Pro wrestling star and 1980's pop culture icon Captain Lou Albano died Wednesday at age 76.

    Albano "was often imitated but never duplicated, and he certainly will never be forgotten either," said World Wrestling Entertainment in a press release.

    Albano began his wrestling career in 1953 in Canada after attending the University of Tennessee, the WWE said in its press release.

    After decades of success as a manager, Albano is widely credited with creating the first "Wrestlemania" in 1985.

    The wrestler also earned fame by playing Cyndi Lauper's father in the popular video for "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun."

    According to the Miami Herald, Albano was in hospice care at the time of his death.

    76? Man, I had no idea he was that old. If you've ever heard the cd.. I think it was called "The Wrestling Album" his song on there with George the Animal Steele was ****in hilarious. I tried to find it on youtube but, they must have some ban on it or something.

    Thw Wrestling Album was bad ***. Wasn't there another one with Hogan on it called "Pile Driver" or some **** like that?

    Yeah, I didn't know Capt. Lou was that old either. Remembered as a Wrestler/Manager and Cyndi Lauper's dad in the "Girls just wanna have fun" video

    Some of the best comedians were the Wrestlers and managers of pro wrestling. Bobby the Brain Hennan was hilarious.

    I have the Piledriver video and an extensive WWF video collection. I don't follow wrestling these day, I haven't in years(more like decades) but back in the 70's and 80's I was an avid fan of wrestling.

    You're right Drew. I stopped watching back in 97 or 98. Now, I go back and watch all of the old vids and old wrestlers from the 80's and early 90's and just laugh my *** off. The old stuff is more entertaining now than anything they've come up with in the last 10 - 12 years.

    Yep, that's right around the time that I stopped watching. And I do the same thing you do- I taped all the early Raw shows and every once in a while, I just watch them for the laughs. That's just some funny ****! The Mounties? Those guys were just too funny! lol

    I used to watch wrestling all the time with my dad. He would drink his beer and I would drink my "beer" It was some root beer in a bottle but I thought I was so cool Hacksaw Jim Duggan and Jake the Snake were my favorites. I unfortunately get sucked into watching wrestling sometimes cuz of CM Punk. My fiance has some sort of man crush on him I think
