What ever happened to Waka?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know what Wakanohana is up to these days? He's been awfully "invisible" for such a publicity magnet.

I heard something of him running a chanko restaurant when Taka's danpatsu-shiki was up, but I don't remember more.

As of January, he was doing color commentary. Not sure what he's up to now, but that's where I last saw him...

He writes for Mainichi Shimbun and has a restaurant in Roppongi.

Seems like he's very active: a writer, a commentator, and a restaurant owner. Wow...

Is it fairly routine for ex-rikishi to comment on sumo matches on TV/radio? It's very common here in the US for athletes to join TV/radio coverage of their sport once they retire.
