1.) What is Historic Mode?

Historic Mode is a mode of gameplay unique to Giant Gram 2000 (it's
the second option from the main menu).  In it, you literally step
into the history of All Japan Pro Wrestling, as you re-enact some of
the classic matches in the promotion's storied history.  You are
given percentage points based on which moves you do at a given point
in the match.  Score above 80%, and you unlock various features and
characters.  Press Y on any completed match to view highlights of the
match itself.

3.) OK, so what's so special about each of these matches?

- Baba vs. Hansen: Stan Hansen's first singles match with All Japan
Pro Wrestling.  Hansen had worked for New Japan Pro Wrestling up
until that point, and Hansen switching promotions was huge, since
wrestlers generally didn't switch promotions in Japan as they do in
the States.

- Tsuruta/Baba vs. Hansen/Brody: The biggest tag match of the early
1980's.  Baba and Tsuruta were All Japan's most popular native
workers, while Hansen and Brody were the most respected gaijin
(foreign) workers.

- Tsuruta vs. Hansen: Tsuruta, reigning NWA International champion,
fought Hansen, reigning NWA United National champion and PWF
Heavyweight champion, in a title-for-titles bout at the Budokan. 
This match unified the three belts into what is currently known as
the Triple Crown.

- Misawa vs. Tsuruta: This was the traditional "passing the torch"
match, as the younger Misawa finally scored a pinfall victory over
the veteran Misawa.  The announcer screams "New Hero!" after the
victory, and Misawa goes on to become All Japan's top heavyweight
of the 1990's

- Misawa vs. Hansen: On August 22, 1992, Misawa defeated Hansen to 
win the Triple Crown for the first time.  This was a Misawa title 
defense, and is generally considered the best of the Misawa/Hansen 
bouts.

- Misawa/Kobashi vs. Kawada/Taue: These four men were the top four 
heavyweights in All Japan throughout the 90's, with 12 Triple Crown 
title reigns between them.  This particular match was the ninth tag 
team match between these two teams, and was the final match of the 
1995 Real World Tag League tournament.

- Kawada vs. Misawa: The infamous "Kawadadriver" match - during the 
course of this bout, Misawa tried to counter a Kawada powerbomb with 
a hurricanrana.  Kawada countered the hurricanrana by dropping to his 
knees, sending Misawa head first into the mat, in what is generally 
considered the most brutal move in professional wrestling history.  
During the course of this bout, where Kawada defeated Misawa for his
third Triple Crown, Kawada broke his arm, and continued the match.

- Misawa vs. Vader: This was the main event of the second (and most 
recent) Tokyo Dome show All Japan staged.  Vader had come into the 
promotion less than eight months before this match and mauled his way 
to the Triple Crown, defeating Akira Taue for the vacant title in 
March.  Misawa channeled the spirit of the great Giant Baba, who had 
passed away at the beginning of the year, and defeated the much 
larger Vader to win his fifth (and final) Triple Crown.

- Akiyama vs. Ohmori: For the first time since Misawa's Triple Crown 
victory in 1992, a tour-ending show at the Budokan was headlined by 
someone other than the Big Four (Misawa, Kawada, Kobashi & Taue) or 
a huge gaijin (ie: Vader, Hansen, Steve Williams).  The matches on 
the show were determined by fan balloting, and this matchup was voted
as the main event.

- Kobashi/Akiyama vs. Ohmori/Takayama: Voted the 1999 Tag Match Of The
Year by Tokyo Sports.

- Akiyama vs Misawa: Another "passing the torch" match, as the younger
Akiyama scored his first pinfall victory ever over the veteran
Misawa.  Akiyama is now being touted as Pro Wrestling NOAH's top wrestler.

- Kobashi vs. Vader: From the same show as Akiyama vs. Misawa, this
was All Japan's most recent Triple Crown title change, and was also 
Kobashi's first pinfall over Vader.  Since Vader arrived in All 
Japan, he feuded with Kobashi, sending him to the hospital on one 
occasion.  This also set the stage for the Kobashi/Akiyama rivalry 
that continues to this day in Pro Wrestling NOAH.

4.) So how do I grapple, hammer throw, etc.?

Most of these are basic moves that you might want to know just for general
gameplay:

- Grapple: When facing your opponent, press A.
- Side grapple: From a grapple, press A while holding either up or down.
- Back grapple: From a side grapple, press A once more.

- Hammer throw: From a grapple, press the D-Pad/Arcade Stick towards your
  opponent and press B.
- Corner hammer throw: A regular hammer throw done from near the corner.
- Run: Either press the direction you wish to run twice, or press a direction
  and hit Y.

- Tag: Press Y when near your partner.
- United attack: After tagging your partner in, press X+Y or A+B or X+A or 
  Y+B simulaneously.
- Burning attack: With your spirit meter at MAX, press L+R simultaneously 
  to go into Burning mode, then L+R once more to pull off your Burning Attack.

5.) I'm pressing Down & X at the same time - why won't Baba do his stomach
    kick?

Well, you're not really supposed to press them at the same time.  Hit 
the direction, then the button after you've released the D-Pad.
