Re: Yokozuna was great
Yokozuna shouldn't have been a success – he didn't have many of the normally essential ingredients save size – but somehow everything he lacked worked for him. He had zero charisma, yet that made him more intimidating; a big, silent monster type. His girth gave even simple moves a sense of power and his character had a comedy aspect to it as well, being a stereotype sumo, after all.
He wasn't the greatest ever, but he played the role he had well for a period of time, until he became too large to move properly. It's a shame he didn't keep his weight in a safer range.
