According to ET Online, the news of her death was confirmed by Japan's Stardom Wrestling who asked people to be respectful of her family’s grieving process. Hana had thrown her fans into a confused state when she took to social media to drop statements that caused them to worry.

The news of the 22-year-old’s passing comes just days after former WWE star, Shad Gaspard, drowned. 

BBC News recounted that Hana was one of the cast members of the Japanese reality TV show before it went on hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The show filled the lives of three women and three men as they lived together in a house temporarily. 

Hana, who won Stardom's 2019 Fighting Spirit Award, is suspected of having committed suicide following the mean attacks against her by internet trolls. The news of the 22-year-old’s passing comes just days after former WWE star, Shad Gaspard, drowned. 

According to Yahoo!, the Cryme Tyme tag member was declared missing after he and his 10-year-old son, Aryeh, went swimming at the newly reopened Venice Beach in Los Angeles.

While Aryeh was rescued and several other swimmers made it out to shore safely, Shad’s body was nowhere to be found.

Authorities later confirmed that Shad’s body was found after he was caught in a rip. The late 39-year-old was about 50 meters from shore when a lifeguard last saw him.
