Hatakikomi. Presumably, they gave Ura the slap-down win over Ichiyamamoto, because "dramatic-matador-style-ole" is not an official kimarite. Later, a more traditional and impactful hatakikomi gave Tobizaru the upset win over Takakeisho.
Match of the Day
03 Sekiwake #1 East Wakatakakage versus 10 Maegashira #1 East Tamawashi
Tamawashi began by making this his kind of match, heavy shove to Wakatakakage's throat and all. Then Wakatakakage did what he does best and absorbed the blow to turn the match around. Tamawashi never let up and returned to his signature nodowa after a short break. But Wakatakakage managed to push the aged veteran back enough to look like he had an easy victory. Somehow, someway, Tamawashi deflected Wakatakakage's final shove at the end for a tsukiotoshi win.
