==SECTION 1: HISTORY OF EDDY GUERRERO==
=======================================

Wrestling fans nowadays know Eddy Guerrero mainly from his "Latino
Heat" gimmick in the WWF, but Eddy's wrestling resume is a lot more
extensive than that. From his days in Mexican lucha organizations AAA
and EMLL, to his days as the masked junior Black Tiger in New Japan
Pro Wrestling, to his days in American promotions ECW, WCW and WWF,
Eddy Guerrero has seen and done it all.

The youngest son of Mexican wrestling legend Gory Guerrero, Eddy and
his older brothers followed in their father's footsteps and pursued
careers in lucha libre. Eddy later became notorious in Mexico as part
of the heel tag team "Los Gringos Locos" with the late Art Barr,
and the lure of fame and fortune in American professional wrestling
would soon follow.

In recent years, Eddy has held the WWF Intercontinental Title on
on several occasions, and it looks like his best years may still be
ahead of him.

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

GENERAL STRATEGY
Eddy's moveset is very lucha oriented (as it should be), with lots of
fancy moves such as the Huracanrana and the Frankensteiner. Without a
doubt, these moves will be your bread and butter as your goal is to
win in the flashiest manner possible.

As to not betray his lucha roots, you must take to the air with Eddy
Guerrero. This is where is at his best, although his technical skills
are also first-class.

Eddy's only weakness defensively would be against Fire Pro's bigger
grapplers -- Andre, Jumbo, Baba, etc. But then again, who isn't at a
disadvantage against those guys?

Overall, don't be afraid to attempt anything. Be brave, be cocky, and
look for the nearest turnbuckle when you want to end the match.

STRIKES
OK, so Eddy's not so hot when it comes to strikes. You can't have
everything, can you? Oh well, just use the Horizontal Chop as your
main strike offense, mix in the occasional regular kick, and avoid
dropkicks at all costs.

And since his running attacks count as strikes, I'll mention them
briefly. Satellite Head Scissors. Huracanrana. They both rock. Use
'em. 'Nuff said.

GRAPPLES
Now we're talking. If you are confident with your grappling ability,
you will achieve success with Eddy Guerrero. You'll find all of the
staples of wrestling in his repertoire; the DDT, the Piledriver, the
Suplex, you name it, Eddy probably has it in Fire Pro D.

It's hard to recommend a specific grapple strategy since all of Eddy's
grapples can be effective. He has two Specialty moves from a grapple,
the Frankensteiner and the Shoulder Neckbreaker Drop. Use them both
at your earliest convenience (when the opponent is starting to wear).

Eddy's corner grapples are good. Especially effective is his Swinging
DDT, which is a Specialty Move, not to mention it looks damn cool.

Just remember, when you feel the end is near and it's time to put the
opponent away, the Frog Splash (adopted by Eddy to honor his late tag
team partner Art Barr) is the way to go.

THE 4th COSTUME -- BLAAAAAKU TIIIIGAAAHHH!
If you wish to relive Eddy's New Japan days as Black Tiger, simply
select his fourth costume to get his classic mask and outfit!
