• Former WCW Wrestler Passed Away 27 Years Ago Today At The Age Of 28
On this day in 1994, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran “The Juicer” Art Barr at the young age of 28 due to a drug-related heart attack.
He made a name for himself in Mexico’s Lucha Libre promotions, where he also teamed up with Eddie Guerrero, but most U.S. wrestling fans will remember him for his 1990/1991 stint in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling as “The Juicer”.
