Top 10 WWE Managers Of All Time
Who are the 10 best WWE managers ever?
9. Captain Lou Albano
A classic manager who did most of his work before WWF’s explosion in 1984, Captain Lou was the king of the tag scene, all but guaranteeing tag gold for whomever he was cornering.
Arguably Albano’s greatest contribution came as the catalyst for the Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Connection, with Albano slap bang in the middle of the action as he feuded with pop star Cyndi Lauper.
Although Albano was eventually unsuccessful in his war with Lauper, his stock rose dramatically, with Captain Lou turning face and managing the likes of Hulk Hogan, Andre the Giant, and any other faces who needed support against WWF’s ever-growing rogues gallery.
Captain Lou remained a tag specialist, first guiding the US Express to the tag titles, and later masterminding The British Bulldogs’ rise to the top, with Dynamite Kid and Davey Boy Smith defeating The Dream Team for the straps at WrestleMania 2.
After several years away from the company, Captain Lou would return in 1994 to oversee The Headshrinkers’ WWF Tag Title win with Afa, then would once again leave town, presumably returning to the Mushroom Kingdom. (He was Super Mario innit).
