The wrestling world is mourning one of its own after the tragic death of Hana Kimura.

It has been confirmed the Stardom wrestler – who also appeared in Netflix reality series Terrace House: Tokyo – has passed away aged 22.

Although Hana’s cause of death has not yet been revealed, on Friday she posted a picture of herself with her cat with the troubling caption: ‘Goodbye.’

According to Variety, Kimura also recently shared a number of concerning tweets, in which she said she ‘didn’t want to be a human anymore’ and reportedly implied she had been cyber bullied.

Now, her fellow wrestlers – and promotions from across the globe – have paid tributes to the late star.

Mick Foley tweeted: ‘Oh, God, I am so sorry to hear this. So young… She had so much to live for.’

WWE superstar Natalya added: ‘I just heard this news and I’m truly saddened by it. Heartbreaking. Prayers for #HanaKimura and her family.’

Kimura – whose mother is retired Japnese wrestler Kyoko Kimura – had performed at both Madison Square Garden and at the Tokyo Dome in Japan.

She wrote: ‘It absolutely breaks my heart how cruel people can be on social media. It was an amazing honor to know Hana Kimura.

‘She was an amazing girl with the kindest soul and immense passion and work ethic. I’m at a loss of words over this tragedy. Rest In Peace my friend.’

Joey Ryan shared a broken heart emoji, and added: ‘I couldn’t imagine dealing with hate on social media at 22. I can barely handle it now. Some of you should be ashamed of yourselves.’
