Yes, the bar is raised high for Harumafuji. I am not sure why. There have been less successful yokozuna. But yokozuna are expected to get 13-2 or better most of the time. There is always "pressure", nothing can actually be done to force them to retire. And they can't get demoted either, the only way out is death or retirement.
