Hana Kimura, a 22-year-old female professional wrestler who was among the cast of the most recent installment of the internationally popular Japanese reality show series "Terrace House", died Saturday after having been victimized by cyber-bullying, sources close to the matter said. She'd win several championships, including the JWP Junior Championship and the Artist of Stardom Championship alongside her mother as part of a team.

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.

However, reports claim the wrestling star had been the victim of cyber-bullying.

We are very sorry to report that our Hana Kimura has passed away.

It's gained a cult following around the world since airing on Netflix in 2015.

Target stores to be closed or rebranded as Kmart, Wesfarmers announces
By 1325 AEST, Wesfarmers shares were up 5 cents or 0.1 per cent at $38.93 amid a weak Australian market. For instance the ads often have a much older woman say 60 and over trying to sell business attire.

She was starring in the fifth season of Terrace House, which follows the relationships between men and women after they move in together. I don't know how many comments I've seen of people asking when she would go to WWE or AEW.

Supplied photo shows Hana Kimura. Such a wonderful human being. A attractive soul. Kind. I'm dead. Thank you for giving me a mother.

"Thank you to everyone who supported me", read another message, which also implied that she had been cyberbullied. You are my little sister.

WrestleZone sends our deepest condolences to Kimura's family, friends and fans during this tragic time.

Before her death, Kimura was tipped to get to the very top in her budding career. Thank you everyone, I love you. "So much I want to say... my heart is broken".
