Video Graveyard

This edition of Video Graveyard is a tribute to Captain Lou Albano who passed away yesterday at the age of 76. In the 80's, WWE (then known as WWF) took part in a whole Rock-N-Wrestling angle involving MTV and Cyndi Lauper. In this angle, Albano and Lauper feuded with each other and used two famous wrestlers (Wendi Richter, The Fabulous Moolah) to settle their fued. Out of this collaboration, Albano appeared in two of Lauper's videos ("Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and " The Goonies 'R' Good Enough). All of which are awesome and The Goonies video being more so than the other due to a bunch of 80's wrestlers being in it (Rowdy Roddy Piper, Iron Sheik, Nikolai Volkoff, The Fabulous Moolah, etc...awesome). This along with two extra videos that people around my age fondly remember from the early 90's. I'll just say it involves a certain famous Italian plumber. Rest in peace, Captain Lou and thanks for your contributions to music video and well, wrestling.
