    Maybe that knee makes him unpredictable. Capable of outstanding wins, but when it let's him down losing badly.

    Looks like we are going to need a new "next ozeki". And then two guys who will get there before him.

    Takayasu was certainly on the offensive. Is there a difference between a "dead body" inside the ring and one beyond the bales?

    Just hope he's on it from the get go or he could be fighting a rearguard action.

    But Shodai is hardly Mr. Reliable. No way of knowing which version will turn up most days.

    Good job by the gyoji. Yeah, it's almost as if he was right there and paying attention.

    Not everyone is as powerful going forward as Aoiyama. Not really luck, the better skill set won on the day.
