He was involved in the Big Trade between Lou Albano and Tony Marino - Verdu and cash for Ivan Koloff and the Mongols, all of whom won belts for Albano.

G'day David,

The manager involved in the Verdu and cash for Ivan Koloff and the Mongols trade with Lou Albano was Tony Angelo - not Tony Marino.

Tony Angelo was a former wrestler who had also used the names Pat Kelly, Russian Angel and Russian Crusher, among others, during his in-ring career.

Tony Marino was a wrestler in the 1950s through to the 1980s. He held the WWF International Tag Team with Victor Rivera and also with Bruno Sammartino. Marino also wrestled as the masked Battman in Sammartino's Pittsburgh promotion. Marino wrestled in Australia as Dino Lanza.



Lou and Tony Angelo later met in a series of manager vs manager bouts.
