Sewanin Haguroumi wiki/羽黒海憲司 has died yesterday after a long fight with illness - he was only 53 years old. Tatsunami-beya has posted it. Wake and a family funeral will likely be before the basho, principal mourner is his widow.

Haguroumi died of chronic renal failure - he had been in and out of hospital for 10 years and after this Aki basho his physical condition deteriorated. 1 week ago severe complications occurred, including a stroke. In December a farewell gathering will be held. http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/201911050000483.html

Professional wrestler Kazuo Sakurada who died on January 12 aged 71 was formerly a rikishi with the Tatsunami stable who reached makushita 13. His final shikona is given as Midorimine at Sumo Reference and "Suiran" on Wikipedia (maybe someone who can read kanji could explain the completely different readings here).

The DB has a # at the readings for both Midorimine - there was a later one in the 70s in the heya, so the reading was  unconfirmed. The Chinese reading is apparently Suiluan https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kazuo_Sakurada#cite_note-Sumo-9 - looks like the one who wrote the English article knows Chinese better than Japanese.

Japanese wikipedia does not question the shikona reading Midorimine.
