====SECTION 1: HISTORY OF STEVE WILLIAMS
========================================
"Dr. Death"

Steve Williams is one of the sport's most internationally 
respected wrestlers. Originally a football player, Williams
was too rough, so he became a wrestler instead. He worked
in the UWF(US,not Japan) for a couple of years alongside 
Ted DiBiase. After a few years, he went Japan, and the rest
is history

He became famous due to his memorable run in All Japan Pro
Wrestling. During his tme in All Japan, he won the World
Tag-Team title 8 times, 5 with Terry Gordy. Williams also
was able to win the Triple Crown in a tough match against
Mistuharu Misawa.

Williams returned to the US a few times between All Japan
tours. He worked for ECW, WCW, and the WWE. However, he 
didn't acheive the same success. He was badly used, as in
one run in the WWE,he entered the Brawl-For-All, a boxing-
style tournament, only to get KO'ed by Bart Gunn.

Last year, Williams tried to get into K-1, only to get KO'ed
in under a minute. It was then revealed that Williams was 
suffering from throat cancer. Luckily, Williams was operated
on time and was able to return to All Japan recently, winning
a tag match with Gen'ichiro Tenryu.

A FUN BIT OF TRIVIA: Steve Williams got the name "Dr. Death"
due to his defense-breaking skills in football.

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

GENERAL STRATEGY
Dr. Death has a maxed out power rating, so use and abuse of those 
grapples at all costs. His strikes are pretty average, so just use 
them as pokers and stick to the slams and suplexes. If you win 
grapples, the match is yours. Just remember to breathe after a few 
slams.

On the defensive side, he has a weak Suplex rating, considering 
the fact that his offensive rating is near max. Submissions and 
Technical moves also damage him as well, so stay clear from those
attacks.

STRIKES
Although he has a Punch rating of 7, don't use his punches as much.
Use them as pokers for tough opponents or the giants. Stick to the
grapples.

GRAPPLES
Williams' high points are in the grapple area. From his specials 
to his powerful finisher, Steve can deal much pain at a fast rate. 
For a quick finish, keep on using the Dragon Suplex Whip and the 
Monster Backdrop. With the One Hit Finisher, the Monster Backdrop 
is one nasty move to use.
