Golden Lips reminds me of Hulk Hogan.  I'm guessing that was intentional but they did not get the rights to use his name on the game.

Yeah it was only released in Japan and pretty much all the wrestlers are based on real professional wrestlers. Don't think you could get away with doing that now! I really want to get this game some day  :)
