Can anyone name the yokozuna pictured?  Found the image browsing Google+ for sumo stuff.  

Impressive.

It is Wakanohana III Masaru, 66th yokozuna from 1998-2000.

Thanks.  Is that Takanohana's brother?

Yokozuna Takanohana's brother.  Ozeki Takanohana's son.  Yokozuna Wakanohana I's nephew.  No relation to Yokozuna Wakanohana II.

His uncle's one-time son in law doesn't count?

I did not know that. So, Yokozuna Wakanohana I's daughter married Yokozuna Wakanohana II? Did they stay married? Did they have children? What ever happened to II?

They did not stay married and as far as I know had no children. Others here will know more.
