Steamboat / Flair is probably my favorite feud of all time and Flair has always maintained that Steamboat is one of the best workers he's ever been in the ring with. 

 

I love the shoot interview with DM where Flair says that Steamboat could pretty much do or learn anything, but kept his moveset tight as not to overdo it.  "If you asked Steamboat to learn how to do a moonsault, he'd do it.. BUT IT WASN'T REQUIRED BACK THEN~!"  That is a powerful statement from Flair and I have always been a proponent of the don't do shit just because it looks cool school of pro wrasslin workrate.

 

Grainy though it may be, I love watching the 70's footage from the NWA house shows.
