Ontario Canada Expat’s reign as Wuxi China Expatdom Midget Sumo Wrestling Champion May Come to End

Duston Short’s undisputed reign as the Midget Sumo Wrestling Champion may soon come to an end. Till now, Short has had no opponents and so claimed the title by default and also by virtue of being a midget with troll-like proportions; but with the arrival of Taihu, a wrestler from Albania who actually has competed in matches, Sumo experts insist that Short must surely be defeated in a championship match.

Taihu, with a wrestling record of 4 wins and 35 losses in Albania, has issued a challenge to Short. By the rules of the Wuxi China Expatdom Sumo Wrestling Federation (WCESWF), must answer the challenge within two weeks or forfeit his championship belt.

Taihu, after being weighed and measured, has been declared eligible to compete in Midget Sumo Wrestling Matches in the WCE.

Short could not be reached for comment about the challenge. Rumors were circulating in the WCE that Short was considering taking the first plane back to Ontario, Canada where he said his uncle suddenly became sick. Short had also been reported as saying he did not know how to wrestle and was scared.

Henry Watson Fowler, the owner of Dangle’s Participle, a bar for would-be English Teachers in Wuxi and where Short was a patron, told the WCE Blog that he was going to encourage Short to man-up and face the challenge. "A man don’t be wearing a championship belt for nothing, I told Short!" said Fowler who was also an author of a popular and pedantic book on English usage.
