Revenge of Wakanoho

Well, as I suspected, now that shit has hit the fan those who tried to come out about yaocho before and were admonished are resurfacing.  Among them is none other than former Wakanoho (Soslan Aleksandrovich Gagloev) who was expelled from sumo in 2008 after being arrested for possession of the sticky icky.  Currently playing American Football for Webber International University in Florida, the 22 year old Russian from Ossetia-Alania, sold his list of 21 rikishi that he said he took part in yaocho with to the perennial gossip rag “Shukan Gendai”.  Here is the list for those who don’t want to shell out, or don’t want to be seen buying Shukan Gendai, or can’t read it, or any combination thereof.

Hokutoriki
Toyozakura
Chiyohakuho
Chiyotaikai
Tamarikido
Shirononami
Shunketsu
Jumonji
Shimotori
Kotomitsuki
Kotoshogiku
Kotooshu
Kiyoseumi
Kyokunankai
Kasuganishiki
Kasugao
Kaiho
Kaio
Otsukasa
Ushiomaru
Asofuji

Note the glaring lack of Russians and Mongolians, and the rather large number of ozeki.

  1. Too bad he waited until after he had been arrested, for what in Japan is considered class A drugs, before picking up his whistle. It’s all too easy to discredit anything an “ex-druggie” says.

  2. Wonder if the real news will pay this any mind? I think Mataginoshin is probably right that his news of yaocho was too little too late after being busted for drug use.

  3. Time has told on this one. I’ve seen some small murmurs various Japanese news and sports websites, but nothing further. Some of them didn’t even name the 21 rikishi. I think most people are just ignoring this for Mataginoshin’s previously stated reason. Looks poor Soslan is gonna get swept under the rug again. That being said I do like that he had the balls to call out all the current and former ozeki. Everyone knows those jokers were buying and selling the last few years of their careers (and some still continue to do so.)
