    Maybe it's a scheme to promote Takakeisho?

    Takagenji Caught Smoking Weed

    I usually am not interested about backstage happening, but in this instance I read some just to know the context. And apart from the verbal abuse of that attendant (which is pretty widespread), I don't see a reason to hate him otherwise. He made comments on social media about touchy topics? I don't care. He is frustrated after defeats? Not always, i don't remember seeing him throwing a fit or be disrespectful in the dohyo and many others are frustrated too after defeats. In the end I'd only judge him for smoking weed and the attendant thingy. Guess I can accept two strikes for dismissal, this weed thing being especially bad. But people hating him enough to want him out of sumo just for slapping Enho around? That's stupid. As a side-note and somewhat OT, I just read some BS about NSK being upset with Hakuho about muh being too aggressive slapping Shodai around and armlocking Terunofuji. If they're upset about victory gesture (which they are), is fine, but BS like the above mentioned are unacceptable as accusations. Ban armlock throws and slaps (and see how your viewership moves to watching something else instantly), don't reeee against the man for legit techniques. I hope Cringe Gould is right about anti-Hakuho NSK, cause the alternative would mean NSK in now full of pussies.

    If he wins tomorrow will Takagenji still fall out of Juryo? I don't see the top Makushita dudes doing so well.

    About that "documentary" >Hakuho >modesty ahahahaha I'd say that if those high behavioral standards were still taken into such high consideration in modern times before promoting to yokozuna, few would have been promoted past 1800-something. They still are taken into some consideration, but only when there is something serious. Asashoryu was always a punk, yet he became yokozuna. He never would have been if the "exemplary character" was observed before decision to promote. The fact is that sumo needs yokozuna to keep up the interest of the audience. Imagine if you had years or even decades without a single yokozuna. Or if you had very good wrestlers that no matter how many consecutive yusho they had they wouldn't have been promoted because of flawed character. I like that NSK still does some attempts (meek in my opinion) to weed out garbage throughout the ranks so that not any scumbag gets on top. Many say "nooo, the evil tyrannical NSK stands in the way of excellence". I say it doesn't do enough. Sumo still has rules and if exemplary character is one of those rules, then it should be observed. Some people would want to get rid of it entirely. "If some yokozuna behaves like a scumbag, let him, he is yokozuna afterall, he earned it", they'd say. At this point why call the title "Yokozuna" and not "Scumbag" instead? Also why do all these martial arts "documentaries" feel the need to impress and always try to exaggerate or romanticize things making the whole feel disingenuous? I'd given them both a loss if I was absolute ruler of Sumo. And that for bad sumo. Mitakeumi tries a half-assed pull, Takakeisho falls. Lame. But since Mitakeumi was already out of the ring completely (even if still in the air) by the time Takakeisho touched with his arm, I'd say the ruling wasn't really bad. Still a torinaoshi would have been much better and I bet Mitakeumi would have won instead.

    Yeah and probably Asanoyama knew that. That's why I believe the pull was decided way before the match. I think he thought that since Mita fights mostly like him, a pull might spare him a lot of physical strain. Otherwise if Asanoyama decided on the moment for the pull, it would diminish my respect for him... I remember seeing other heavier guys doing that posture in lower divisions. It indeed has bad aesthetics. And some time ago was considered Takakeisho's rival.

    It would be interesting if Onosho finishes 0-15. I don't hate the poor guy, just that I didn't see a 0-15 since forever. I know Mitakeumi as I was cheering for him for a long time, but there Asanoyama killed himself by trying to pull him down. Mitakeumi wasn't special this one like the time when he wrecked everything, got injured, came back same basho and wrecked 2 yokozuna too. And that wasn't the only one where he was awesome. Now he is just his usual. Not bad, not top shape either.

    Not an Enho fan, still that was torinaoshi right there.

    To me the only one that looks in better shape seems to be Asanoyama. Mitakeumi looks like his usual self, just his opponents look in worse shape. Takakeisho looks weaker. Shodai looks strong too, but he makes a lot of mistakes. My Hokutofuji is his usual reckless self and he'll never make ozeki in this fashion.

    Yeah, but does he get tested or not? Cause if not and really has it and comes back, he might infect everyone, if didn't already.
