Overall thoughts: There was some decent wrestling today but not a ton of upsets. Everyday can't have upsets though. I would have preferred some of the 3-1 guys wouldn't have had to fight each other as with a little help in match selection, some of them may have had a better shot at winning this one. Hakuho is clearly the favorite at this point but Baruto is looking like a sleeper pick by the day. I'm glad Shohozan has gotten back on track and Kotooshu looks like he could care less.
