Sumo wrestling is all about forcing your opponent out of a circular ring or, if you can, getting them to touch the ground with anything other than the soles of their feet. This is typically how a match goes:
But during the 13th annual U.S. Sumo Open, which began on Sunday in Los Angeles, the three-time World Sumo Champion Byamba decided to do things a little differently against his opponent Kelly Gneiting. At first it all seemed normal…
But then Byamba picked up Gneiting, who weighs over 400 pounds, and slammed him to the ground, causing what I can only assume was a massive earthquake throughout downtown L.A.
As far as we know, Gneiting is not dead.
