Known for her courage, Hana Kimura was one of the first women to wrestle on a Wrestle Kingdom show, working in front of a packed Tokyo Dome in January this year.

"Please be respectful and allow some time for things to process, and keep your thoughts and prayers with her family and friends", the statement adds.

However, reports claim the wrestling star had been the victim of cyber-bullying. "I hope you found peace". "We appreciate your support during this hard time", the announcement read. I love it. I'm weak, I'm sorry. People often talk about Hana's looks but anyone who followed her career knew there was far more to her.


Wrestler Sü Yüng also posted a tweet that read, "I will always love and miss you, my friend". Growing up as a wrestler, Kyoko made her official debut as a full-time pro in 2016 for Wrestle-1, feuding with Reika Saiki in a series of matches and even having a rematch against her mother. She's a two-time Artist of Stardom Champion and a one-time Goddess of Stardom Champion.

While reps for Netflix didn't immediately respond to request for comment, a statement on Stardom's website reads, "Our company player Hana Kimura passed away today on May 23". You are my little sister. Thank you everyone, I love you. I don't want to be a human anymore. The young star would wear bodysuits full of neon pink, green, blue and more inside the ring and would also wear similar T-shirts and other types of clothing outside of the ring. "I'm sorry", on Instagram, shortly before her death was confirmed at a hospital in the early hours of the day.
