On April 24, 1989, New Japan Pro Wrestling held the first pro
wrestling card at the Tokyo Dome. Making his debut that night was
Jyushin "Thunder" Lyger, a costumed junior wrestler that would lead
New Japan's junior division for the next decade.

Over the next 10 years, Lyger would win the IWGP Junior title an
unprecedented 11 times, the IWGP Tag Team title twice, and the 
Octuple Crown Unified Title once in 1997.

=======================
==SECTION 4: STRATEGY==
=======================

GENERAL STRATEGY
Jyushin "Thunder" Lyger has always been one of the better wrestlers
in the Fire Pro series, and here is no exception. He's an offensive
powerhouse, and although you would think as a junior he would excel
at high-flying, high-risk moves, that's not really the case. Lyger
is a solid technical wrestler with a good set of strikes, plus the
ability to get rough when he has to.

STRIKES
Lyger has good punching/kicking and good respiratory stats. What this
means is Lyger is a wrestler you want to strike with. Strike hard,
strike often. Your opponent will definitely feel the sting!

GRAPPLES
My two favorite Lyger mid-level grapples are the DDT and the
Tombstone Piledriver. I always try to wear the opponent down a bit,
then start abusing these moves!

Although the Stalling Vertical Brainbuster is his finisher, you really
should use the Running Lyger Bomb instead. It's such a stylish
finishing move you'll never get tired of seeing it.

Running Lyger Bomb - Basically a running powerbomb into a pin. You'll
want gauge your distance when using this move to make sure you don't
end up in a rope break by the time Lyger has his opponent pinned.

COMBOS
Note: These are not combos in the "fighting game" sense of the word,
as grapples can be countered and opponents can recover in between
moves. These combos are more akin to natural wrestling combinations
for this particular wrestler.

Also, unlike fighting games, Fire Pro D combos are easier to perform
when the opponent is worn down as his recovery time is longer.

   1) Tombstone -> Shooting Star Press
   2) Any Shouda -> Corner Shouda
   3) Wild Bomb -> Running Lyger Bomb
   4) Figure 4 -> Romero Special
