TRIBUTE TO CAPTAIN LOU ALBANO: Long before The Rock lit up the Big Screen and Chris Jericho went on tour as an opening act for major Rock Bands there was a Legend who set a standard that will never be surpassed. Louis Albano better known to the world as Captain Lou was starring in movies with the likes of Danny DeVito and Joe Piscopo & Headlining concerts and music videos with the Hottest acts of his day like Cindy Lauper and NRBQ. This was back when The Rock and Jericho were still in diapers! Captain Lou was an Icon and a National Treasure who brought professional wrestling into the mainstream by creating the Rock and Wrestling Connection with MTV back in the 1980s. The Captain took pro wrestling from the Smoke Filled Arenas and laid the groundwork for Hulk Hogan and the Hulkamania Craze. Captain Lou also hosted a weekly Television show, Super Mario Brothers, that ran for years on one of the Big 3 Networks at the time. A veteran both in the ring and as a manager Captain Lou Albano has transcended genres like Noone before him or since. He is truly The Man! In this special we feature highlights of his promos, his appearances on Late Night with David Letterman and we peel back the curtain and are joined by some of his peers in both pro wrestling and movies and a certain family member that is carrying on his Legacy. In this Epic special we are joined by Captain Lou's nephew UFC and Pride Fighting Legend New York Badass Phil Baroni, WWF Legend and Cauliflower Alley Club President B. Brian Blair, Fellow Actor and Executive Producer Sal Franciosa and Pro Wrestler and Lou's friend New Legend Chuck Sloan.
