@TheAnimeManiac Well before that, there would be no fight for naruto against sasuke. Basically it's like saying what if vegeta died on planet vegeta? The main rivalry is gone along with half the story missing.
That is true
If Naruto somehow survived the fight,
Naruto Shippuden probably wouldn't have happened.
Literally almost the whole plot was Naruto trying to bring Sasuke back to the village
