I.  Introduction

Please note that this document is a work in progress.  It's not done.
It's not even _near_ done.  But, I felt it was my responsibility to 
take the first crack at coming up with a decent translation guide and 
move list for this game.

Currently, I've only done the top-level menus and most of the of the 
basic moves.  The individual wrestler moves should be pretty simple to
do once I get started, so that coupled with the fact that another 
contributor has already taken a first crack at the edit mode means I'll
tackle that sooner. 

My current plans are to do the following:
  1) Get the rest of the basic moves and menus translated.
  2) Go through and translate each wrestler's move list.
  3) Document and translate the edit mode and all its options (!)

Remember, the feedback I get on this guide will help it grow.  If I get
people telling me that they're using the guide, I continue writing, K?

If you have additions to this guide, check the e-mail address at the
bottom of the FAQ.

V0.2 (9/15/99)  : Added in move priority information.

                  list.
V0.35 (9/16/99) : Wrestler name corrections.  See the last section for
                  credit.

V0.4 (9/17/99)  : More wrestler name fixes, 1/2 of the basic moves xlated.

IV. Basic Move List

>>1. The Basics <<

Movement is performed with the digital (i.e. 8-way) controller, not
the analog stick.  

When downed, tap any button repeatedly and press the controller to 
get up.

A: Hitting Skill
     Each wrestler has their own selection... coming soon
     Near Standing Opponent: Slap or kick
     Near Downed Opponent: Kick or elbow drop
B: Suplex Skill
     Each wrestler has their own selection... coming soon
     Near Standing Opponent: Begin suplex attack
     Near Downed Opponent: Pick up opponent and suplex
Y: Submission Skill
     Each wrestler has their own selection... coming soon
     Near Standing Opponent: Begin submission attack
     During Attack:  Cancel (when referee starts counting)
     Near Downed Opponent: Pick up opponent and strike
X: "Action" Button
     Performs various actions.  See the basic move list below.
L: Taunt
R: During single match, Taunt.  During Battle Royale, change target.

Move Priorities:
  Each of the three attack skills has higher priority than one
of the others:

       A --beats--> B --beats--> Y --beats--> A
   (Hitting)    (Suplex)     (Strike)     (Hitting)

So, when two opponents attack at the same time, the one with the
highest priority wins.  A simple hit beats out a suplex, a 
strike move will connect over the hit, and a suplex beats out
the strike.

Stun Levels:
  There are four levels of stunning an opponent.  These levels
help determine exactly what moves you can perform.
 N: Normal (not stunned)
 S: Small Stun (Torso and head waving back and forth slowly)
 M: Medium Stun (Torso and head weaving all over)
 L: Large Stun (Weaving all over the place, shuffling feet)
