Notice how the press release misspelled his name as "Rakishi".

Okazuna? I think they mean Yokozuna.

Sucks for "Rakishi." I vaguely remember him being in trouble with the law before? I remember seeing him on Confidential talking about bullet wounds in his stomach a few years back.

This may be a dumb question, but: why are the U.S. Marshalls' Office playing up Rikishi's accomplishments, as though he was just signed to a wrestling contract or something?

I understand the idea of them publicizing that they arrested someone for X, but then to list the guy's whole biography (ESPECIALLY considering he cooperated and is touted as a "real gentleman" or somesuch in the release)? Just seems a tad tacky to me.

So, my ex-cop background gives me nothing on this: what is a show cause hearing? Some sort of civil dispute?

Edit, never mind - I looked it up - it's usually a tenant landlord hearing about eviction/non payment of rent.

Make some sense of he was working in Italy.

We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

Well... that was a busy show. - Horrible Lashley promo that nearly went off the rails. - I THINK Renee Dupree's fake French accent went away. - Bob Holly has a new awesome catchphrase. - Brad Armstrong: Southern Color Commentator.
