    Meaning of the initials on MK2 winning streak screen?

    I always wondered about this when I first saw it forever ago in the arcades...

    #9-14:
    SFT
    BBD
    WIT
    HOU
    TTT
    RYU

    I assume that it's a reference to Street Fighter 2 (how I always read it: "Street Fighter Blows Big D**k Without Ryu" is how I always read it.)

    Anyone know for sure?

    I think the first one is short for the name "Carl", probably the guy who's name inspired Johhny Cage's (his real name is John Carlton).

    Johnny cage got his initials from Jean Cluade Van Damme... either way I hope you find whatever meaning you seek cuz to me its jsut random scores and letters.

    Well they took the time to spell out the entire phrase 'without ryu' in there, so that's at least not random letters.

    Couple that with SF initials right above it, I figure there has to be subtle jab there since the rivalry was a pretty big one in the day...

    Is that preset initials the game put in?
