Kiribayama was the new bright thing at the start of 2020 getting all the way up to M1E in November - when he went 3-12.
In 2021, he made it all the way up to Komusubi for November - when he went 6-9.

Will he go even further in 2022?

He'll hang around the joi, and get some good results but won't go higher than komusubi. And three KKs, three MKs

3 KK, 3 MK, 3 Basho in Sanyaku, ending up on K1W in January 23.

Not a great year, I predict. He'll be ranked at M6W for January 2023.

M4E
M12W loss
40 wins for the year, it's going to be an elevator type

For me, Kiribayama and Wakatakakage have enlivened makuuchi. Well, and the return of Abi and Ura, of course. I wish him well, but I could see this going either way, but I'm giving him credit for a return to sanyaku, but not too high unless there are injuries and retirements above him this year.

Most of us think he will end up in the joi-jin, or thereabouts. The remainder think he will be in the lower sanyaku ranks. But approximately meat-grinder territory for all of us.

Half-way through the first basho of the year, Kiribayama has been thrown to sanyaku and joi-jin opponents. His lowest loss has been to M2W (Ichinojo) - but that is also the lowest ranked opponent that he has met thus far.

I think the third question might be key to who wins the 'yusho' for this poll. There is a reasonable spread of seventeen, from 40 to 57 wins for the year.

Well, let's see how the year pans out for him...
