Kiribayama at the age of 23, is one of the youngest rikishi in Makunouchi (Takakeisho and Onosho are a few months younger), and had a great debut basho in Makunouchi, racking up an 11-4 record from the rank of M17E. The highest ranked player that he has defeated thus far was M8E Aoiyama.

How will the rest of 2020 pan out for him?

A good debut often isn't followed by further good bashos. I suspect he will end up a middle maegashira wrestler

Mid maegasira. 3 KKs but they'll be balanced by some low numbers near the top. Averages less than a KK for the year.

Rank M7 after a bad Kyushu in the joi.

3 KK but have another good 11-4 in there. Will defeat a sekiwake.

He will need some time to adjust to his rank. He may go to the joi-jin for a basho, but he will start 2021 in mid-Maegashira.

Edit: His exact rank will be M7E.

He will reach the joi within the year but hit a big wall and will be ranked around M11 on 2021 Hatsu banzuke

We seem to think that Kiribayama will have a middling year this year.

He's mentioned in the video as being short of stature, but 184cm isn't short and he's in the 140kg range. Much more of an Asashoryu or Harumafuji body (to go the Mongolian route) than an Enho or Ishiura one.

He has some nice skills and could do well at the highest levels if he can add more power to go with them.
