Kisenosato injured in a bout with Harumafuji. Strong hand push of Harumafuji put him out of the ring and Kisenosato fell out of the ring falling on his back. He could not stand up. I could not understand what had happened and where he got injured at. Later it was reported he got injured his front chest muscles. He fell on his back hitting hard his back and severed the muscles of his front chest. It is still strange for me. He did not hit his front chest. Unfortunately severed muscle cannot be put together.

Glad he seems to be recovering from career ending injury, BUT the JSA was still horribly wrong in promoting him to Yokozuna, he should have retired a long standing Ozeki.

Not sure I would agree with that. I mean, I could say the same for Goeido and I probably will be saying it for quite some time. Kisenosato's injury and resultant nose dive could easily have happened as Ozeki. In which case he'd be retiring never having made it to Yokozuna.

I haven’t seen many matches but I got to watch a few of his bouts. They were amazing. Harumafuji is still my favorite of all time.

Sorry to see Kinsenosato He had a quiet strength in his presence. He was very sincere. Harumafuji was my favorite wrestler as well. He always made the match interesting. There are many others that keep me watching Grand Sumo. I love it!

I just want to say that I'm happy for him as Araiso and I hope he finds even more success and happiness in that role.
