– During a recent interview with Monopoly Events’ For The Love of Wrestling, WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi recalled how much fun he had wrestling his cousin, the late WWE Hall of Famer Yokozuna. Below are some highlights (via WrestlingInc.com):

Rikishi on wrestling his cousin Yokozuna: “That’s very hard to answer, but I’d have to say with Yokozuna. I’ll tell you why … because there’s nothing like getting into the ring with your family members, and to be able to pull pranks on them, and so, when I was The Sultan, that mask I used to wear was made out of leather. So, whenever I would say something, you could never see me laughing or talking up underneath there.” 

On getting splashed by Yokozuna: “When he finally did get me, the big man at 700-something pounds, boy he’d give me that splash in the corner, I wasn’t going nowhere.”
