Art Barr Blog Question

Hey Scott,
Have a question for ya. I saw the famous Octagon/Santo vs. Love Machine/Guerrero match from TripleMania recently and was blown away at how good a worker Art Barr was. I had never seen him wrestle before and thought he was just as crisp, quick and as athletic as Eddie was. If this guy didn't pass away, could he have been among the next crop of elite workers that were coming like Benoit, Malenko, etc?
His frog splash was SICK!

I don't think he was an elite WORKER, but he was an elite heel and he would have been a giant star because he had all the personality and charisma that Eddie and Dean were lacking for years.  He was just too big of a risk for any of the promotions, however, for obvious reasons.
