    What rikishi do you miss the most?

    Tochiazuma. Very versatile, one of the very few who could do something against Asashoryu in his prime.

    Terunofuji's health problems

    In all his bouts Terunofuji looked really slow, and he got all his wins using brute force from his upper body. That´s not going to pan out in high-Makushita.

    Bad quality, but... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCOHOhLisEI

    You or me would not be quick enough to step aside before being hit. Also, there are/were other rikishi with explosive tachiais who were at least as much in danger of falling for a henka as Kotoshogiku is. Remember Dejima, for instance ?

    I am not familiar with the intricacies of the determination of kimarite, but to me it did not look like a nage at all, more of a kind of twist-down. But if, I agree it should be kubinage.

    Aminishiki injured/ Intai

    Having had the pleasure to watch Aminishiki in his prime years, I remember regularly going crazy watching him beat ozeki by the score, giving the yokozuna a tough bout most of the time an then losing to much less-talented rikishi than him. As much as I will miss him, I will always wonder what might have been if he would have been more consistent when ranked in lower sanyaku.

    Not sure if I am overthinking here, but maybe Takayasu has in mind that going kyujo tomorrow could impact the outcome of the basho - giving Hakuho a fusen win while Kakuryu has to fight another opponent...

    Not sure about his other bouts, but that slap immediately followed by getting Hakuho´s shoulder rammed into his chin would have made almost everybody losing his balance.

    What did Hakuho do there ?

    Remember the extra shove from Asashoryu to Hakuho after pulling him down (May 2008) ? That glare Hakuho gave Asa was for the ages.

    Nagoya 2018, but I am not sure though if those injuries were all related to kotenage. Tochinoshin injured his toe... Interestingly, Tamawashi hasn´t used it since.

    Remember Kaio ?

    Hakuho´s opponents seem to do everything to deny him a grip, and are then easy victims of his this basho´s plan B.

    He seems to have good ability to take blows and regaining his balance. Really impressive.

    I don´t want to take anything away from Asanoyama, but in reality the bout was over after one second.
