  1. I wasn´t aware of "that other site/forum" (as it was called here ) until after the yaocho scandal broke. Back then, they where already obsessed and they were writing as if everything was as meticulously scripted as if the kyokai was actually a WWE division.

    Takayasu is four months removed from a jun-yusho with a playoff loss. I don´t write him off yet.

    Chances aren´t bad Asanoyama will continue that newfound tradition in 2023... ETA: Haru

    Probably he only told him his money is on him

    Apologies for repeating myself here, but this angers me since day 1.

    The hectic social schedule surrounding Japanese weddings has had an impact on many performances.

    I am wondering when exactly, and why, it almost vanished. I remember them being quite frequent into the naught years. Or does my memory betray me here ?

    Would a few torinaoshi as "fillers" be too unfitting ?

    Chiyomaru´s left leg really put up a nice resistance effort against Terutstuyoshi .

    I am stating the obvious here, but key is to get him in an upright position right at the tachiai and following through.Judging from his recent week two performances I am not convinced that anybody can do that.

    Without looking it up, to me it was a kind of read-and-react from Terunofuji. Granted, a tad late after a mediocre tachiai and his immediate counter failing, but he kept his calm, ring sense and strength to dispose of Endo.

    Takakeisho is using his left paw to great effect this basho. But I sincerely doubt it will be enough for Terunofuji. As for Endo - his dismal record comes from his now well-established struggles against oshi wrestlers. And yes, he drove Terunofuji to the edge, but to me it looked like the Yokozuna was never out of control of this bout.

    That´s exactly why/where things got awry.

    I think the gyoji didn´t as well. First he stopped the bout, but Wakamotoharu went on, which he (thought) obliged him to make a (useless) call. That´s where the chaos ensued, and the repositioning took way too long.

    @Kintamayama please include the repositioning in full in your digest. Terunofuji`s look was hilarious.

    Any reason whyy they are so keen on that ?

    Why am I not surprised that Kotonowaka can resort to a very good left uwatenage if needed ?

    Nagoya 2022

    Can one of the experienced, knowledgeable members on this forum explain what Terunofuji was thinking by handing a morozashi to a rhino ? Yes, he is extremely strong, and he gives up a lot of them, but to an opponent of that size ?
  21. Gospodin

    Nagoya 2022

    I think the difference is he didn´t throw him, but used the arm bar to force him down/out.

    Nagoya 2022

    What´s making it even more impressive is that oshi specialists tend to peter out earlier than yotsu wrestlers.

    The gyoji in Takakeisho´s bout gave nothing about that both hands down rule. Both of Takakeisho´s hands were nowhere near the ground at the tachiai, I was really surprised he didn´t call a matta.

    Abi is ranked in Sanyaku.

    I remember that basho, for the very atypical kimarite he employed. He came back from a stint in Juryo and looked like a changed wrestler.
