This Mainichi Daily News article doesn’t list the dead person’s name, but other Japanese media reports name the deceased as 51-year old Yoshiyuki Inoguchi, a general affairs manager for the Nishonoseki sumo stable.

Nishonoseki is a legendary stable in Sumo that produced two big names that would go on to be legends in professional wrestling — Rikidozan and Gen’ichiro Tenryu.

The hanging is yet another story to rock the Sumo world. Asashoryu, who recently retired, raised eyebrows when he appeared at Wall Street for what was explained as business meetings. He has reportedly returned back to Japan.
