Netflix fans will know Hana Kimura from the popular series, Terrace House, and the star was found dead aged 22.
The cause of death has not yet been officially announced, but fans were concerned about her following a recent social media post.
In one of her recent tweets, the professional wrestler said: “I love it. I’m weak, I’m sorry.”
Her death was first announced by her wrestling organisation, Stardom Wrestling, earlier on Saturday.
They said: “We are very sorry to report that our Hana Kimura has passed away. Please be respectful and allow some time for things to process, and keep your thoughts and prayers with her family and friends. We appreciate your support during this difficult time.”
She was starring in the fifth season of Terrace House, which follows the relationships between men and women after they move in together.
Wrestling Travel paid tribute to the young star on Twitter, saying: “Hana Kimura was one of the first women to wrestle on a Wrestle Kingdom show, working in front of a packed Tokyo Dome this January.
“A whole, history-making career was ahead of her. 22-years-old. Heartbreaking doesn’t even begin to cover it #RIPHanaKimura.”
