The Ship Be Sinking

Mouth Almighty

The Captain

Did you know that before becoming one of the legendary WWF managers, Lou Albano was actually a wrestler himself? Worked a few territories back in the 60’s and 70’s, mostly as a prelim guy and jobber. Had his biggest success out in Chicago in a tag team called The Sicilians, until some actual Sicilians ran him out of town. It was pretty common back then for most pro wrestling managers to be former wrestlers who were great talkers, but for whatever reason just couldn’t reach the top level in the ring. No, no particular reason I mention this.

In completely unrelated news, how about that Tom Lawlor press tour?
