In "New in Makunouchi" notes, the four-digit number means number of the rikishi in the all-time Makunouchi list (ordered by sumo entry date), as well as a reference number to data of the wrestler

Please Note: This site uses an alternate Transcription System for all Japanese words. You must use these spellings in your search strings. Examples among current rikiski include "Kaioo", "Kyokushuuzan", "Tooki", and "Kotoryuu". Likewise, that really big city in Japan is "Tookyoo".
A more forgiving search mechanism is coming soon...
