Sumo & Stogies would like to cordially invite all of our loyal readers to once again rejoice in the revelry that is:
Yaocho or Real!?™
For this season’s game we are going to review our last day of Hatsu 2013 and look over all of the matches that involved a 7-7 wrestler (historically the matches with the highest chances of one wrestler giving it up in favor of the other). In order to rid the sport of the scourge of match-fixing, the JSA has gone so far in the past as to force wrestlers to retire and even cancel entire tournaments. It’s clear they want the fans to think that the sport has “returned” to a state of squeaky clean-ness. With 5 out of the 7 eligible rikishi getting their KKs, it’s clear that something is at play, whether that be additional day 15-motivation for wrestlers on the brink, or something else… Let’s see what you guys think! Yaocho or Real!? Vote Below!
M11E Wakanosato (4-10) vs M14E Shotenro (7-7)
Going into day 15, Wakanosato lead the overall head to head 5-4 but had only won 2 of their last 5 matches.
M10E Kitataiki (8-6) vs M10W Okinoumi (7-7)
Going into day 15, Kitataiki led the overall 5-3.
M4E Gagamaru (6-8) vs. M12W Tamawashi (7-7)
These two haven’t gone head to head in over a year, but the head to head is 1-4 in Tamawashi’s favor.
M8W Chiyotairyu (9-5) vs. M1W Myogiryu (7-7)
First time meeting for these two relative (pro) sumo noobs.
M1E Aminishiki (8-6) vs. M6W Aoiyama (7-7)
0-1 in flap-jack titty’s favor. (That’s Aoiyama for the uninitiated.)
KE Tochiozan (7-7) vs. M7E Takayasu (12-2)
5-1 in TocheeriOzan’s favor historically
M5W Ikioi (8-6) vs. SW Baruto (7-7)
