Why he might be annoying:

    He has become a singer-rapper, releasing the CD, KMS (Konishiki Master Sumo).
    At eleven, he weighed 180 lbs.
    He married a petite fashion model, Sumika Shiota. Their wedding was so popular that a Japanese TV Station broadcast the two-hour ceremony instead of the Winter Olympics.

    On his 28th Birthday, Konishiki drank 10 shots of whisky, 10 quarts of tequila and 120 bottles of beer and claims that he 'wasn't even drunk.'
    He was one of the few wrestlers to beat the great Chiyonofuji.
