How the fuck did this happen.
We haven't had a dead thread in a long time. The wrestling anons must be restless.

The dohyo is in a very bad shape.
Anyone know if they are allowed to repair it or given the sacred status it ain't possible?

Day 11: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxwKigkMWCU

>>2686647
makuuchi starts at 2:58:00, check it out if you want to see the entrance ceremony

Juryo starts at 1:38:35.
Also if you want to die play the drinking game every time you hear "sou desu ne".

is that so?

Does sumo have any crossover appeal for wrestling fans? I know a few years ago it got outed for being rigged, I'm assume that was a one-time thing and the sport has since rebuilt its reputation?
>>
>>2687212
I truly don't know as I don't watch wrestling but it is my understanding that wrestling as done by the WWF and the like is not a sport but a scripted show. Isn't it? Sumo (with or without cheating) is a competitive sport.
>>
>>2684325
ah yes, /ourguy/ hattorizakura

here's an epic bout from that legend

I won't go as far as say he will reach Yokozuna but given time and if injuries are kind to him I see no obstacle for him making Ozeki.
>>
>>2687355
How he get a win?

I don't understand why they paired Takayasu with Takarafuji (3-8) for day 12.
Wouldn't it make much more sense to pair him with Shodai (8-3). From the outside it does look like they are handing him the Ozekihood when there is really no need.
>>
>>2686351
Unlikely things have happened with WWE so there is a lot of activity.

>>2687212
I'm an E drone and I like it. The match fixing was ended a long time ago, but back then it was obvious. A rikishi who got to 8 wins would invariably lose the rest of their matches.

>>2687521
The banzuke is decided before the basho starts, according to rank and what heya the rikishi are from. Not allowed to fight teammates except in tie breaker. Whoever wins and loses is up to the rikishi.
>>
>>2687542
The banzuke yes but not the bout schedule. That is decided one or two days in advance and they supposedly pair similarly performing rikishi.
I think what happen here is that Kisenosato pulling out fucked up the system and thus day 12 bout schedule is far from optimal.
>>
Appreciate whoever reposted the thread. Feels a little silly when the only real wrestling thread gets knocked off the board.
>>
>>2686738
I know they're allowed to conduct repairs, but I don't know the details of when/how etc.

Some cracking is normal, but that side does look pretty beat up. I don't know why it hasn't been fixed.
>>
>>2687602
Thanks for the correction. I pay attention mostly to the matches, so I don't know a lot about the organization. Kakuryu is out too, so I'm guessing it's not easy for them to make matches for that many rikishi.
>>
>>2687602
Kisenosato pulling out definitely fucked things up, but there's still time for them to shuffle the last few days and make sure there's excitement.
>>
>>2687355
fuck is this shit?
>>
>>2688299
The very bottom division, it's mostly high school kids.
>>
>>2688299
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Professional_sumo_divisions

that's a jonokuchi bout, most guys like hattorizakura who clearly aren't cut out to be a sumo wrestler try it for a bit then quit or if switch to being a referee or usher. But this guy is rather determined.
>>
>>2688299
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3nlmNycZA0
>>
>>2688323
>>2688331
I understand he's in a low division, by is he *so* terrible?

Also, do they perform all the same rituals (ring building, etc.) for the lesser divisions as they do for the top ones?
>>
>>2688381
His Heya has an open door policy, you could go to Japan and they'd even let you on the dohyo if they haven't hit their foreigner cap yet.

It's the same clay as the big guys, in the same arena. Sumo tickets are for the whole day, but you can see how few people show up for the bottom divisions. They introduce more ritual as you get up the ranks, these bottom guys do one group ring entrance per tournament IIRC
>>
>>2688570
also guys in lower divisions don't compete every day
>>
2684325

He WON one bout?
>>
>>2688342
That actually wasn't half bad
>>
Day 12: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71XBHR1n8Wo
>>
>>2689159
Ura will get a Sansho for sure.
Takayasu will also most likely get a Sansho and his Ozekihood.
>>
poor mitakuemi he's probably going to be demoted again
>>
>>2689352
I see a lot of technique prizes in the future for Ura
>>
>>2687400
>his mom cheering at the end
>>
Really need Hakuho to lose to make this interesting.

Tomorrow's highlight: Harumafuji vs Takayasu
>>
>>2690475
Long gone are the days of Hakuho winning 5/6 tournaments a year, I'm not unhappy if he takes this one.

It would be best if the last day is exciting though.
>>
where do you find the standings for the tournaments
>>
>>2690768
OP under useful links.
The very first link is a sumo database very well maintained and updated daily.

>>2690787
Sumodb is absurdly well maintained for an English source. Updates minutes after each match usually.

So is Hakuho the sumo Cena?
>>
>>2691972
Is John Cena the greatest wrestler of all time? If so yes
>>
>>2691922
Well that was bittersweet.
The yusho is pretty much decided but at least Takayasu snatched the Ozeki promotion against a Yokozuna and with his mum in attendance.
>>
>>2691343

Nice

Teru will bulldoze Hakuho tomorrow
Haru will beat him on day 15 setting up a 3 way playoff

just so I don't sound dumb when talking to people about this.

technically, you could head-kick a dude and knock him out and that would be perfectly legal, right?
>>
>>2692591
No. Just read the pastebin brah.

https://pastebin.com/WQsRgEHZ
>>
>>2692591
no kicking above the belt is allowed, but realistically you almost never see any kicking anyway just the rare trip
>>
>>2692591
No head kicks allowed, but knocking someone out with a brutal forearm is a-okay.
>>
>>2693202
This happens pretty regularly too, it's pretty hardcore
>>
>>2692591
Since they're almost always in contact, a wrestler probably wouldn't get the opportunity. Too risky.
>>
>>2687355
I would like to report with the highest solemnity that /ourguy/ posted a respectable 0-7 again this basho. This makes the sixth consecutive 0-7 and his eighth 0-7 total or ninth if you include the one time he went Kyujo.
Hattorizakura fans should note that with such numbers there is a very real possibility Hattorizakura will be placed as the bottom rikishi on next Banzuke.
A privileged situation as there really is only upside expectations from such a position.
>>
>>2693578
Ganbatte!
>>
>>2686347
Are there any videos of Samos performing back kicks or step behind side kicks?

And sumo general, I greet you from the martial arts general. Let us reunite the lost tribes of /asp/ergia
>>
>>2693703
Since kicking above the waist isn't allowed, those types of kicks are just too high.

Tokitenku was a guy that was pretty good at trips and low kicks though, check this out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qP1atGP8qco
>>
>>2693711
I was mostly hoping to see how powerful they would be if they used their full weight and power. Seeing it in vid gives you a kinetic feel for it

Nice wall tho
>>
>>2693716
It's probably out there somewhere, but I've never seen a video of them doing it.
>>
>>2693741
Aye tis shame

funny we should talk about this, just saw a ketaguri win in Juryo

lol that henka from tochinoshin
>>
>>2694680
Guy tried the same cheeky matta bait mind games yesterday, whitey don't have time for it
>>
Takayasu may have the best tachi-ai in sumo atm.

Hakuho is the undisputed GOAT
>>
Hakuho would win much less tournaments if Asashoryu wasn't forced to retire.
>>
>>2695052
That's true, but he would still be the GOAT
>>
So who's going to get special prizes? Tochinoshin and Ura?
>>
>>2695729
I could see a fighting spirit prize and a technique prize.
>>
wow that hakuho harumafuji fight was fucking intense
>>
Outstanding Performance: Mitakeumi
Fighting Spirit: Onosho
Technique: Takayasu / Yoshikaze
>>
>>2696362
Just saw that live, it was damn good. Finish on a high note.

Tournament could've been better if it weren't for the damn injuries but that Harumafuji/Hakuho match was fucking awesome.

>>2696367
Ura deserved something.
This is unjust.
>>
>>2697698
Too much henkad use I guess. He is young, he'll be successful.
>>
>>2696367
Mitakeumi is my favorite but he really did not deserve the Outstanding Performance prize this tournament.
>>
>>2697712
He beat two Yokozuna, he deserves it.
>>
>>2697718
>he beats two injured yokozuna who both withdrew
>finishes the tournament 8-7
>had a long losing streak during the middle
>>
>>2697724
Go to sleep Ura. We still love you

>>2699070
Appreciate all the bumps, mystery bumping man. I think we can let the thread disappear until next Basho now though.

See you all July 9th at Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium in Nagoya!
>>
>>2699160
Until then, sayonara!
>>
When will we find out the promotions?
>>

Juryo promotions should be out in a few days, other moves are later because they wouldn't affect salary and privileges.
