I'd look at Flair as a kind of anti-Hogan. He used his star power to go out and get his ass kicked on a regular basis. In an era of 1-hour time limit draws, he didn't eat a ton of pins, but he made a lot of people look amazing.In the Undertaker video I linked yesterday, Super Eyepatch Wolf mentioned how Taker seemed to always be willing to help younger wrestlers get over. With all the stories about wrestlers holding younger guys down, who else was notable for being willing to raise them up?
I can remember how, on the "Rise and Fall of ECW" DVD, Paul Heyman talked about how willing Terry Funk was to help make other wrestlers, to the point where he says there wouldn't have been an ECW without him.
