Since everything was wiped out from the previous thread, I figured that a new one should be started.
Anyways, I cant rememeber the questions that were asked form the previous thread except for one so I'll go on to answer that one.
Why I think Retsu is the one that most likely beat Gen in SF1.
I think that it was Retsu because for one thing he was friends with Gouken. The fact that Retsu and Gouken have are old friends and sparring buddies means that Retsu is at least skilled. Next is the fact that Retsu was practicing forbidden arts of his temple that he was in. He was kicked out but he continued to practice them. And the fact that SF1 didnt have any other strong fighters in it. Sagat and Adon were beaten by Ryu. Which leaves Mike, Joe, Geki, Lee, Birdie, Eagle, Retsu and Gen. Out of them I cant see Joe, Lee, Birdie and Eagle being that strong. Mike is Mike Bison but even he couldn't of beaten Gen. Geki I dont think is that strong. Which leaves Retsu.
This is just my guess though.......
I really hope to see this thread revived to it fullest again.
