“Sumo Sam: the Champion Eater, Legendary Fighter”
Sumo Sam Legend
“The legend of SumoSam began when one spring, the finest Sumo Wrestlers in all of Japan witnessed migrating cranes from the United States flying towards mighty Mt. Fuji. They saw one crane carrying a red, white and blue pouch and were thrilled to see a baby boy break free from its shiny cloak upon descending at the foot of the mountain. Believing that the baby was a gift of good fortune, they took him back to their village and raised him as their very own. The baby grew fast in size and strength, and used these gifts only to champion the good and defend the weak. He grew up holding two passions: Japanese Food and Sumo Wrestling. His appetite broke records and he saw Japanese Food as the true reward to a good match up. Eventually, he was regarded as a Yokozuna - a grand champion, the highest rank in sumo wrestling. He has finally proven his worth when he released a village from tyranny by defeating the evil lord Aiku. This answered the prayers of Miyuki, the most beautiful maiden he had ever seen. She was the one who served him food he had never tasted before which helped him regain the strength he needed to fight Aiku. He was stronger as his heart fought for freedom and love. When the fight ended, the villagers prepared a grand banquet in his honor. His passion had made him an artist and he remains a true champion. His name is SumoSam: the Champion Eater, Legendery Fighter.”
