Good day! It's Show Time! Miketagz Again! Only in Japan created this sport called Sumo Wrestling. It's started In Edo period of 1603, it was a popular form of entertainment. The original wrestlers were almost certainly ronin, samurais who had no lord or master and they would have competed as Sumo would provide them with a source of income. I remember the legend Sumo Wrestler named Yokozuna during World Wrestling Federation era (the present name is World Wrestling Entertainment), his real name was Rodney Agatupu Anoa?i, he is weighted 598 pounds. He won against the legend Wrestling Superstars Bret Hart and Hulk Hogan, then he included as WWE Hall of Fame in 2012. Video:

@Corbin5 Unless you have brute force strength to get out of the ring unlike wrestling needs to pin the enemy to declare a winner.

@rheicel And need to weigh more but the advantage is being strong and chance to win in every match but the disadvantage is on health issues to gain overweight.

@miketagz Yes, they needed to be overweight. They really look scary when they start fighting.
