===================================
==SECTION 1: HISTORY OF CURRY MAN==
===================================

Indy worker Christopher Daniels is currently enjoying success in the
Land of the Rising Sun as Curry Man, a wrestler with one of the more
bizarre masks in pro wrestling (no small feat there). If you haven't
seen it, try to imagine a bright yellow mask with sharp teeth and a
plate of curry sitting on the top! Strange to say the least.

And oh yeah, Daniels is currently one of the better wrestlers in the
world today. Mmm, spicy!

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

GENERAL STRATEGY
Due to his low stats, Curry Man can definitely be at a disadvantage
if you don't use him correctly. This means making the most of his
moveset, winning your grapples, resting often and attempting
several high-flying moves per match.

Curry does not match up favorably vs. heavyweights, so you'll have to
work a careful, calculated match to have success against them.

Above all, you want to put on a good show with Curry Man, win or
lose. You should concentrating on entertainment at all times.

STRIKES
Curry Man has the basic punch and kick in his arsenal, plus the
American Hook. All are respectable weapons if used correctly. The
Rolling Prawn Hold, his (X) + (A) strike, isn't really a strike at
all, but it looks cool if you can nail it during a match (the timing
can be difficult).

GRAPPLES
If you find Curry Man challenging to use, perhaps you can find some
consolation in knowing that his Spicy Drop finisher is one of Fire
Pro's best! It's rewarding to be able to work your way up to the
Spicy Drop, especially against a larger adversary.

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) Rock Bottom -> Hollywood Star Press OR Rock Bottom -> Running 
      Moonsault (run at turnbuckle)

   2) Snapmare -> Reverse DDT
