I am hardly a sports fan, but I was curious and thought someone might know.
At present a sumo wrestler called Endo is getting attention for his rapid rise. Now, wrestlers at some point take professional names, but "Endo" is more a normal (very common) family name than a sumo name. Checking, I found out that it is indeed his real name. Why did he against tradition use his own name as his professional name, and has that ever happened before?
