-The late Art Bar (a/k/a Arthur Leon Barr) was born on this date in 1966. Barr debuted in the Pacific Northwest territory in 1987. He had a brief run in WCW as The Juicer, but he was best known for his work in Mexico as "The Love Machine" and as the tag team partner of Eddie Guerrero. Barr died on November 23, 1994.

-Former WWE wrestler Paul Burchill (a/k/a Paul Birchall) is 34 today. He was born on October 8, 1979. He was saddled with a campy pirate gimmick in WWE. He showed a ton of potential and I was disappointed when he was released in February 2010 and surprised that he wasn't picked up by TNA. His Wikipedia page states that he works full-time as a firefighter.
