In the history of Fire Pro's roster, none are as quirky as the goddamn Gaspars. Thinking that's Cowboy Bob on the right and Barry O on the left, thinking the other Gaspar #2 Jason The Terrible would have a Large sprite. The Gaspars are more famous as Fire Pro characters than they are as New Japan ones! Right place, right time to be in the original Fire Pro.
Two more different wrestlers you wouldn't be able to get on opposing pages. On your left, Don Leo Jonathan. On your right, Choden Senshi Battranger Z. Whom you MIGHT know better as Osaka Pro's Policeman. A great no-nonsense classic and a Japanese indy sleaze journeyman. What a team!
Really interesting stuff. It's cool to see how some of the old school guys would have been officially made, even if they were clearly spitballing in a few cases, like apparently suggesting you give Yokozuna a tombstone(!) - I was wondering how they'd fill out some of the older guys who were known for just a handful of big moves when there were a lot less options back then.
Really cool to see Jake Roberts and Haku in there, those weren't guys I expected.
EDIT: okay, I've heard Don Leo Jonathan was a beast, but I could swear that says "one hand neck hang." How the hell would that even work?
Jeffry McWild from Virtua Fighter. And that completes the dump for now. Every new character to the series is dumped. If you want anything else, I'll take requests. Go to Maikeru's renaming thread in this subforum and look at the lists for the X and Special books, if you want anything you think could be of interest, I'll scan it for you.
A master of Martial Arts - the mix of combat styles taught to soldiers in the American army. With his fleet-footed movements and long jump distance, his Rolling Solebutt seemingly whips up a storm. Up until recently, he had been taking on challengers in kickboxing. The data here represents him at his peak.

Recommended Match Card: Urmidez vs. Docken A showdown with the ex-kickboxer Docken is something worth watching. It could even bring back memories of pro wrestling's "Different Fighting Style Matches," too. Caption: When it comes to striking ability, these two are roughly evenly matched. But if he were to take him down to the ground, would Docken have the advantage?
Keep an Eye Out for These Moves!: - He has a solebutt spinning kick that smashes into the opponent's body. There's enoguh power hidden in that kick to knock out an opponent in one fell swoop. If he gets you into a grapple, be careful not to get caught by this. - He can use techniques that catch the opponent with a series of kicks. With countless methods to pull off his striking combinations, any one of them has the potential to knock you out hidden within them. - After the match, he will do a backflip appeal. Though it's meant as a treat for the fans, you can't ignore it as a display of his sheer mobility and flexibility.

The Mandela Effect is the theory that people's shared misconceptions on past events or other things are evidence that some of us may have stumbled in from an alternate universe.
It's named after the shared belief among many people that South African anti-apartheid activist, and eventual president, Nelson Mandela died in prison sometime in the 1980s, and that his death from old age in 2013 is a mistake in the timeline. Less morbidly, it could also be the recollection of the name Berenstein Bears (incorrect) vs. Berenstain Bears (correct).
I guess at one point, we thought Damian 666 was actually a default wrestler in Fire Pro, or something...?
