R.I.P. Captain Lou Albano

WWE.com has announced the death of legendary manager Captain Lou Albano.  He was 76.

While his heyday was long before I became a wrestling fan, I fondly remember his portrayal of Mario on the Super Mario Bros. Super Show during my childhood.  As I got older and watched old matches involving him, it reminded me of a style of managers that’s all but lost in today’s wrestling.

Rest in peace, Captain.  You will be fondly remembered.
