    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    I wish i could find the topic, like a year ago. when i said that Asanoyama would make Ozeki or Yokozuna one day. That is not quite happened yet, of course, but who knows, we are much much closer now. A great Basho nonetheless, exciting sumo, nice stories to be told, etc. Kakuryu, however, seems to have lost quite a bit of fire...

    It has to be a psychologial strike of great proportions. May i Wonder, does he has to "serve" the maegashiras in his stable now that he has been demoted? That could motivate him, but maybe it could also throw him into a deep depression, seeing him relegated to no mans land... Sad Story indeed, i hope he can earn some money again, at least in Juryo...

    I really have high hopes for the guy, but i cant seem to think that he has that much of a chance to come back anywhere near his former self...

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Will they promote Ichinojou to at least Komosubi in the next basho?

    Hakuhou injured-Kyushu crisis looms

    "Nothing last forever...even cold november rain..." I hope he gets good, but i dont really expect him at this moment and age to come back 100 or even 90% (Which is more than enough for him to keep winning half of the bashos every year)

    Its really sad to see, he should definetly retire and who knows, he might even have a future as an actor, big exotic guy, he needs to get in shape slowly but surely, however, the competitive world of sumo is like a piranha pool and he has no place there at all with his injuries any longer. Sad to see indeed, he represented pure strenght on the dohyo...

    Kakuryuu- what next?

    I tend to believe that Kakuryu feels a bit drowned in the shoes of a yokozuna...

    Kakuryuu- what next?

    The mongolian yokozuna, in general, dont have the type of "humbleness" that some japanese great had...No, i dont picture Hakuho as an oyakata.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2018

    I really enjoyed the reading, very elaborated, too, thanks! And you are right, when Buster Douglas knocked Mike Tyson out, everybody was a Buster Douglas fan from the get go, before that, everyone thought he was "another chubby heavyweight who is getting knocked out inside 2 rounds". The neutral fan is the embodiment of the modern world hypocrisy.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2018

    Kisenosato s career is not over yet, so we cant really talk. He won his yokozuna debut while having a career ending injury, and he still tries to get back to his former self. I Still believe that, with proper rest, he can, maybe, do it again. And he is, in my opinion, far bettter wrestler than Onokuni.
