I kind of got to thinking about the national promotions the other night and wrestlers who were always in the main event picture, but never were the "guy" the company hung its hat on.

The most glaring inclusion to me was none other than The Undertaker. Here's a guy who worked on top for the better part of two decades, but never was the guy the company hitched its horse to.

When he started out, the guy was Hulk Hogan. Later, it became Bret Hart. Then Diesel for a year. Then HBK before yielding to Stone Cold, The Rock and John Cena.

Yet, he was always there and working with those guys and in the main event picture.

Big Show also comes to mind as one of these types.

Anybody else you can think of?

WCW-wise, I'd say the company carriers were Flair, Sting, Flair again, Hogan, the nWo, Goldberg (briefly) and that's about it.

Again, the Giant comes to mind there.

For that matter, Andre the Giant was also there at the top of the card, but never the guy. Randy Savage may be another because even though he was champ for a year, he was always in Hogan's immense shadow and never really "the guy."
