  1. That time big Trev hosted the WWF events centre.
  2. I’ve been chatting to the designer. He has a series of shirts being designed in this style. So if this is you style, then there’s more to come. He’s apparently had mixed feedback, some love the C4 shirt, myself included, but a number of people have had a dig about them not being official.
  3. This Viz beauty popped up on my TL again from 2017:
  4. Pal sent me it, a random post from FB. Possibly a post in the Wrestling Trading Fanatics page, based on the groups he goes on.
  5. I was going to post this in it’s own thread because it deserves it. But then I just thought it would end up as a mirror image to this thread from 4 months ago. Anyway, look at this, just look at it.
  6. Yeah mate, as expected, the young death rate is pretty high unfortunately. No idea if it’s on Eurosport, I can sort you with a link via DM if you want one. It’s becoming incredibly difficult to watch these days over here.
  7. I thought it made sense to drop a playlist in here. Sumo Drop The playlist is for anyone who has any interest in Sumo, old fans, new fans, or for those with an interest but no idea of rules or terminology. Episode 1 is a basic guide to sumo in layman’s terms, explaining rules, rankings and terminology. All other episodes focus on the January tournament, including our thoughts, ramblings, results and predictions. We’ll carry it on in March, and every tournament thereafter. The pod consists of myself, artist Adam Hogarth, and new member Matt Stogdon from the Sequelisers movie pod.
  8. We’re over 1/2 through this tournament, 9 days/matches in to be precise, meaning depending on how rikishi’s have done so far, it’s now time to go for it. Shock results so far: Takakeisho - He hasn’t been able to pull it back. As I said in the OP, he won November’s Basho, was a favourite to be promoted to Yoko based on how he does this Basho, but my god, he’s been on his arse. After day 9 he’s now at 2-7. This means in order for him to bounce back and salvage a kachi-koshi (more wins than losses out of 15 fights) he needs to win every single match. Bad craic. Kotoshoho - When it
  9. They look absolutely stunning @chokeout and that cake @tiger_rick looks delicious.
  10. Virgil just cut a promo about Cameo bookings, and the whole time his bollock was out. and the video link if you’re feeling a bit erotic.
  11. Yes mate, Dejima won a summer 99 Basho, got to Ozeki, but dropped off a couple of years later. He went on to become an elder. You mentioned Wakanohana, he actually later became the head of the Japan Sumo Association for a few years. In terms of Mongolians, they still love it man. There’s 6 or 7 in the Makuuchi as we speak, including both Yokozuna who aren’t competing this month.
  12. Oh mate don’t worry about that, I went out of my way to try and not promote these like a pod shill, I very much enjoy posting articles on here for what they are, so if people enjoy reading them, I’m happy to keep posting. I’ll do my best to post everything in layman’s terms.
  13. Great matches today (day 5). We still have 3 unbeaten, with 5-0. One of which is Meisei. After day 1, I mentioned on the pod that he was my ‘one to watch’ this Basho. He was promoted into the top division in September, he finished with a record of 9-6, he again finished with 9-6 in November and is doing me proud so far. He defeated Tokushoryu today. Takakeisho has finally got a win, making him 1-4. He won the overall November Basho with a record of 13-2 but until today has had a horrid start. If he bounces back and goes of a win streak, he’s still got a chance of staying in Yok
  14. For anyone wanting to watch, who haven’t found specific discord chats yet, send me a DM. The general issue we currently have is that the NHK hit YouTube uploads with copyright strikes, and pull them in seconds, which is fair enough. However, it means we can’t watch the tournament as it happens each day if you’re based in the West, there isn’t a legitimate means to watch it. Which is a shame. What’s more odd s that they don’t copyright strikes every day, just every other day. Odd. ... Wow Scotty, that’s mint. But fair enough really. I can see why you made the connection you do.
  15. Never noticed it properly discussed on here, so this might end up on its arse, either way, I thought I’d post it. I’m a pretty big follower of Sumo Wrestling and have been for years. Watched it as a youngster on Eurosport, and got my head in to it a bit more when I was in Japan in 2006. I became much more of a fan a couple of years ago and now it’s arguably my main sport passion. We’re currently at day of this months Tournament (Basho) and the results so far are pretty crazy to say the least. The Ozeki who won November’s tournament with a record of 13-2 has yet to win a match t
