RIP, Captain Lou Albano

Dave Scherer is reporting that legendary WWE Hall of Famer Captain Lou Albano has passed away. 

Captain Lou was a big part of the WWF during its rise to prominence in the 1980s and remains one of the most well-known wrestling managers of all time. Scores of people who aren't wrestling fans will remember Lou from his appearance in Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" and "Goonies R Good Enough" videos, and for his starring role as Mario in the the Super Mario Brothers television show.

Our condolences to his friends and family.
