I. Introduction
===============

Welcome to my WWF Smackdown! 2 Character Guide for Essa Rios. Essa has 
been one of my favorite wrestlers ever since he emerged in the WWF back 
in February. With Lita by his side, he captured the Light Heavyweight 
Title from Gillberg. He would later go on to lose it to Dean Malenko as 
problems between Essa and Lita began to surface. Ever since breaking his 
alliance with Lita, Essa has been sent down to jobber status. It pains 
me to see him there, as I know he has so much more talent than the 
people know. Maybe one day he will be back on TV. Or maybe not, I can 
always hope, can't I?
