  1. Pure coincidence, but that's the name of one of my high school classmates!
  2. Not sure how big this news is but Shikimori Yonokichi has changed heya affiliations from Nakagawa to Miyagino. http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/1813158.html
  3. Not so much. You never know if somebody else might though. So I guess now the bets are on which one he gets?
  4. If this isn't a telltale sign that he may be getting ready to hang up the mawashi, I don't know what is.
  5. The NSK has said that he can't become an oyakata unless he gets Japanese citizenship. They absolutely want to make him an ichidai-toshiyori, but unless he gets that Japanese citizenship, he can't stay in the NSK after retirement.
  6. As we all know, Takagenji will be promoted to Juryo for Natsu 2017. As the third sekitori raised by former Yokozuna Takanohana, and one of the twins from the heya, one can't help but wonder how's he's going to do. So what does everybody think? Please make sure to state how many wins you think he'll get. As for me, I think he'll get only 5 wins in May.
  7. I think he'll go 10-5 but I think being Kisenosato's stablemate will be advantageous for him.
  8. I agree. I request the thread title be edited so it's not so misleading. Anyways I think he doesn't have long and will intai in 2018.

  11. She had ovarian cancer during her days as a pro-wrestler. She was told she wasn't going to be able to have children, so she got really worried when she started dating Kaio. But Kaio didn't worry about it, so the rest is history.

  13. Someone missed something lol
  14. I'm wondering about the two Kotos, do they get to keep the "Koto" part of their shikonas or are they going to have change?
  15. Inosuke was suspended for a few days during a basho last year because of too many sachigaes correct? I can't see him getting promoted anytime soon.
