====SECTION 1: HISTORY OF ULTIMO DRAGON
======================================
"Toryumon"

Before Toryumon and the WWE, ultimo Dragon used to go by 
his real name, Yoshihiro Asai. Trained by Antonio Inoki 
and Yoshiaki Fujimara, Asai would have a bumpy start
in New Japan, struggling to get to a midcarder status.
After a few months, Asai decided to leave Japan and head
to Mexico and learned the Lucha style. Afterwards, Asai 
would work for Universal Pro-Wrestling Federation for
a while. A few years later, Asai would change his appearance
and style and transform into Ultimo Dragon.

His popularity took off as he won both the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight
Belt and the UWA Middleweight title. Soon, he'd work with the
WAR promotion and fight many challengers from other promotions.
Ultimo then participated in the J-Crown tournament, defeating 
El Samurai for the WWF Lightweight Belt, Shinjiro Ohtani for
the UWA Junior Light Heavyweight and NWA Welterweight titles,
and finally the Great Sasuke for the tournament final. Ultimo 
soon went to WCW and defeated Dean Malenko for the WCW 
Cruiserweight title. Ultimo would use his martial arts skills 
and the Dragon Sleeper to win the WCW TV Title from William 
Regal.

Fate played a sad role in Ultimo's career, as he needed surgery 
for his injured arm. The surgery was horribly done and Ultimo's 
arm was dramatically weakened. Instead of leaving the spotlight,
Ultimo started his own gyms called "Toryumon" in Mexico and Japan.
His gyms would achieve great success with students such as Cima and
Dragon Kid.

In 2203, Ultimo would return to pro-wrestling by joining the WWE.
Cuurently, he was only shown in Velocity and not much on Smackdown.
He did get his dream of fighting at Madison square Garden at 
Wrestlemania XX, although he lost in the Cruiserweight Open.
Right now, he is currently wrestling in Japan for many promotions
and is returning to the WWE this fall.

UPDATE: Ultimo Dragon is no longer a part of Toryumon Japan. 
Toryumon is now called "Dragon's Gate" with Magnum TOKYO 
running it. However, Ultimo is now concentrated with his 
gym in Mexico.

Ultimo Dragon held 24 titles:
WCW TV Title (2x)
WCW Cruiserweight Title (2x)
J-Crown
IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Title (2x)
NWA Welterweight Title (2x)
NWA Middleweight Title (2x)
UWA World Jr. Heavyweight (2x)
UWA World Middleweight (3x)*
WWF Lightheavyweight
WWA World Jr. Heavyweight
British Commonwealth Jr. Heavyweight (2x)
WAR International Jr. Heavyweight (3x)
WAR 6-Man Tag

* Asai won the title once before becoming Ultimo.

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

GENERAL STRATEGY
A. OFFENSE
Ultimo is a pure luchadore, and he should be played like one. He has an action 
packed movelist with few submissions. High flying moves are neccesary as he has 
the Cancun Tornado as a special and the rope move Asai Moonsault as well (It's 
named after him!).  In order to take a better advantage of his Dragon Sleeper, 
Ultimo has a great amount of neck crushing manuvers.

B. DEFENSE
Stay away from fighters like Vader, Kobashi, Satoshi Kojima, or Hansen. They 
can easily murder Ultimo in a few minutes. Best thing is to strike from far away
and slowly grapple. Ultimo also has a hard time against submission experts and
and rough fighters, so try to carefully strike and grapple.

STRIKES
Although Ultimo's strikes are weak, they are quick and helpful. His Running 
Flying Kneel Kick should be used often, as it can knock the opponent over the 
ropes, giving you time to rest and plan. The Standing Flying Kneel Kick should 
not be used as much as it can be missed and an opponent can capitalize on it.

GRAPPLES
Many of Ultimo's moves affect the neck area, so keep on working on that area.
Chain wrestle your way in order to preform the Dragon Sleeper. Although his
grapples are weak, you have to keep on working at a body part for a win. 

COMBOS
1. Irish Whip => Flying Kneel Kick => Asai Moonsault*
2. Tombstone or DDT => Dragon Sleeper

*Must be timed correctly in order to work.
