Giacomo Costa (19 December 1919 - 22 January 2000) was an Italian
Australian professional wrestler best known by his ring name, Al
Costello. Costello was the first professional wrestler to be
nicknamed "The Man of a Thousand Holds" because of his innovative
and very technical style.Costello was the creator and original
member of the tag team The Fabulous Kangaroos, whose "Ultra
Australian" gimmick complete with boomerangs, bush hats and the
song "Waltzing Matilda" as their entrance music, existed in various
forms from 1957 until 1983. Costello was either an active wrestler,
or a manager in all versions of The Fabulous Kangaroos. He and Roy
Heffernan are arguably the most famous version of The Kangaroos,
regarded as one of the top tag teams to ever compete in
professional wrestling, and are often credited with popularizing
tag team wrestling in the late 1950s and 1960s.
