So I'm looking through a bunch of classic video games, and I've come across something called "Appoooh!" It's a wrestling game from Japan, released by Sega in 1984. The characters in the game are obviously based off real-life wrestlers, but the names have been changed. Most are fairly easy to figure out:

G. Babu - Great Baba
A. Inoke - Antonio Inoki
Tigerman - Tigermask
H. Hogen - Hulk Hogan
S. Hanson - Stan Hansen
A. Giants - Andre the Giant
A. Buchie - Abdullah the Butcher

The one I can't figure out for the life of me is:

U. Uma

His moveset is listed as:

Fall (Pin?)
Back Drop
Pile Driver
Knee Drop
Body Slum (sic)
Elbow Drop
Drop Kick
Brain Buster
Shinai Zuki

I'm sure it's somebody who I'm going to smack my forehead and go "Duh!" over once I find out who it is, but in the meantime, I'm stumped. Can anyone clue me in?

Umanosuke Ueda?

I have no bio idea of who he is, but I do know he's a past Japanesse star who would've been important enough to be in a game, and his name fits that name.
