Special: From the Pages of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter: Deaths of Boris Malenko and Art Barr
Today on the DragonKingKarl Classic Wrestling Audio Show, host Karl Stern dives back into the pages of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter for Dave Meltzer's biographies on Boris Malenko (the father of wrestler and future agent Dean Malenko) and Art Barr. The death of Barr was treated as a huge loss for pro wrestling at the time. Coming off his most high profile match ever, a five star effort with partner Eddie Guerrero, Art Barr died suddenly and mysteriously. Barr's past threatened to complicate his bright future but death took him suddenly.
