ORIGINAL: Hana Kimura, best known for her work in the STARDOM promotion, has passed away at the age of 22. Please be respectful and allow some time for things to process, and keep your thoughts and prayers with her family and friends.

Her latest, which was also her last one, was translated to "goodbye", after a series of tweets that sparked concern.

Kimura then wrote: "Thank you to everyone who supported me". I love it. I'm weak, I'm sorry.

The second generation wrestler was the daughter of Kyoko Kimura. After leaving Wrestle-1, Kimura returned to Stardom and became the leader of a faction called Tokyo Cyber Squad. Throughout her career, she won the Artist of Stardom Championship, the Goddess of Stardom Championship, held several championships in JWP Joshi Puroresu, and also won DDT's Ironman Heavymetalweight Championship.

Kimura featured on the fifth and current season of Japanese reality TV show Terrace House, which sees three men and three women live under the same roof as they form relationships with each other.
