Ridiculous Predictions Kyushu 2021

There's going to be a special event after the conclusion of the Emperor's Cup: the Oyakata Cup. No word on what it is just yet, although sources say it's more than just the old-boy charity matches we've seen in the past.

That would be cool.  So many retirements over the last two or three years (since the last OB display) that you might get some MAB ("middle aged boys") with a few scores to settle.  Plus, they'll still have their mage!

So that's why THE UNCLE is present! 

Ooooh if only they would hold such event (Praying...)

With the yusho now decided a day early, senshuraku's matches have all been cancelled and given over to the Oyakata Cup. Turns out: it's Hakuho's idea, and he emerges from the hanamichi in his shimekomi and ready to rumble. At stake: the position of rijicho, up for grabs in a knockout format.

Naturally, some of the oyakata are a little askance at this unconventional means of settling things, but it turns out Asashoryu has brought a whole contingent of backup, and the Kokusai Centre is sealed off until the issue is settled.

To no one's surprise, the recent retirees perform much better, and all the current rijikai are knocked out pretty quickly, although Hakkaku gives a good showing against Aminishiki. Tension mounts as the recent retirees get closer to the quarterfinals, with Takekuma (ex-Goeido) knocking out Kiyomigata (ex-Tochiozan), and Naruto (ex-Kotooshu) scoring a surprise upset against Hidenoyama (ex-Kotoshogiku). Eventually, the semifinal dust settles: it's Kakuryu vs Magaki and Takekuma vs Araiso. As expected, Kakuryu and Magaki have a last dance before Kakuryu is gently put over the bales and in the water pail (where mysteriously, some rubber ducks have turned up), and Araiso beats Takekuma handily. The stage is set for the showdown: Magaki v Araiso for the rijicho.

The match begins with a couple of matta, and then finally gets under way. Araiso looks to be on the verge of forcing Magaki out, but the gyoji "accidentally" trips him with the gunbai, and Magaki takes advantage to rally and force Araiso out. Some muttering in the audience can be heard wondering about the gyoji's interference, but seeing as the entire shimpanbu is out for the count, no one raises any objections.

Magaki crouches to accept the go-aisatsu speech from the gyoji, who turns out to be Harumafuji in disguise, but a huge shout of "SHIBARAKU" resounds from the hanamichi, where Terunofuji emerges. Turns out, he's now decided to retire himself and assume a temporary kabu as Terunofuji-oyakata, and he challenges Magaki for the right to be rijicho. Magaki's lack of training shows, and he's just a bit too late to step aside before he's shoved over the bales and the new rijicho is declared to be Terunofuji. A bit of dohyoside temper tantrum from Magaki results at why a mono-ii wasn't called, but then he's gently reminded by Kakuryu that he himself knocked out a few of the shimpan with kachiage, so no one is in a state to judge.

The new rijicho, Terunofuji oyakata, decides the Oyakata cup is a decent idea after all, and keeps it in place for the next year. Magaki oyakata is heard calling up Takarafuji to ask what brand of knee braces Terunofuji is wearing, and which hospital he went to for the knee replacements.

(Whateverabove,itisfunny...) To analyze this work of art would be like trying to tattoo a butterfly.

I was expecting Asashoryu to be the gyoji (no way your typical gyoji can trip Araiso, with a gunbai too!), but it turns out to be Harumafuji. Not bad :-D

But I did chuckle imagining Hakkaku vs Aminishiki lol.

Or, as I imagine it, Emperor Palpatine  vs. Luke Skywalker.
