    I. Introduction
    ===============
    
    (intro from Prima's Official Strategy Guide)
    
      Japan is known for its many exports. Perhaps one of its most 
    successful is Funaki. This Japanese Superstar is small in size, but big 
    in game. There isn't a move that Funaki doesn't know, which makes him 
    dangerous in the ring.
      Very often, Funaki can be found at the side of Taka Michinoku. As two 
    of the only Japanese athletes currently competing in the WWF, Funaki and 
    Taka have a common bond that keeps them tight. Also, their lack of 
    English skills has kept them from branching out and befriending other 
    WWF Superstars. That is, until recently.
      Recently, Funaki and Taka can be found drinking beers and hanging out 
    with the Acolyes. However, what Funaki and Taka don't know is that the 
    Acolytes keep them around for comedic value. Oh well, what they don't 
    know can't hurt them.
