We did not have many surprise entrances at The Greatest Royal Rumble But we did have one that made everyone pause and scratch their head.
Hiroki Sumi is the Sumo jobber that Mark Henry threw out of the ring in under a minute..
Yea, who is that guy?
Well entering in at #7 and weighing in at 500 pounds (according to WWE.com), Sumi is someone WWE has been eyeballing for a while.
He is a former sumo wrestler who competed under the name Hishofuji for 12 years. In his sumo career he had an impressive 22-match wins streak.
The picture we pulled from his twitter shows that he is friends Shinsuke Nakamura and one has to wonder was his participation in the Greatest Royal Rumble a one time thing or will we see him on RAW, SD or NXT soon?
Before I get hate mail, I only called sumo jobber because how Mark Henry man handled the “500” Sumo wrestler on his WWE Debut. Not a very amazing way to get people excited about seeing him. You would think if they were going to use him again in the future they would have let him throw a few people over?
Anyway, make sure to subscribe below for more information regarding Sumi and everything going on in the wrestling world.
