Louis Vincent Albano (July 29, 1933–October 14, 2009), better known by his ring name Captain Lou Albano, was an American professional wrestler, manager and actor. With an over-the-top personality and a penchant for boisterous declarations, Albano was the epitome of the antagonistic manager that raised the ire of wrestlers and incited the anger of spectators. Throughout his 42-year career, Albano guided 15 different tag teams and four singles competitors to championship gold. A unique showman, with an elongated beard, rubber band facial piercings, and loud outfits, he was the forefather of the 1980s Rock 'n' Wrestling Connection. Collaborating with Cyndi Lauper, Albano helped usher in wrestling's crossover success with a mainstream audience. Capitalizing on his success, he later ventured into Hollywood with various television, film, and music projects.
Ravishing Rick Rude wrestling topic
There may have been a Rick Rude topic once but it's been so long that it doesn't matter at this point. Rude had a pretty long career so you can read his wiki page for a synopsis.
Rick Rude knew how to work a crowd to the point that they absolutely hated his guts. IMO, one of the best heels of all time.
