It is with a heavy heart and with tears in my eyes as I write this to inform you all that Hana Kimura aged 22 has passed away. She was a young pro wrestler, ring girl, and rising star with so much more to give to the world. It is painful and sad to hear of her passing. I was fortunate enough to have met her when she was a Ring Girl for Pancrase. I was able to chat with her many times and I always thought she was going to be a megastar one day. She was also building a career on TV as well as pro wrestling she recently starred on Netflix Terrace House. Everyone who knew her here in Japan could see her going on to becoming a huge international star.
Hana Kimura Aged 22. Rest in Peace.
