Oh, that must have been so interesting to see in person!

Now if you could just get Evelyn to wrestle Sasha... that would be something!

I'm kidding. Sumo looks almost as much like dance as wrestling. I guess it's all the ceremony that comes with it.

Kinda looks like the little guy came out of this one on top too!

Hey Mojo, if I could get Evelyn to wrestle Sasha, I won't be sitting inside the stadium taking these pictures anymore! LOL! :D

The guy in the first shot looks pretty limber. The 105 did really well. I have a copy now and love it.

I assume it's not as exciting as muay thai in thailand? But looks intriguing enough to get a ticket to catch a match when I'm finally in Jap.

Just a little different than WWF:) Happy WW.

Great Shots, I love seeing them. Wish I could see it first hand though.

NickTay said...

They are awesome to watch!

Robin said...

I've always wondered what the significance of their clothing is with those stick things hanging off.

Stan said...

Did he end up out of the ring and on the floor?

Grampy said...

Wonderful pictures. I would love to see them in person. But not in the ring with them of course.

Tricia said...

Fascinating, my first thought when someone says wrestling is WWF which is too bad because I know there are so many other (real) forms of wrestling out there. I like how controlled everything seems.
