Bravely, the pioneer recently competed in and finished the 5Star Grand Prix Tournament defeating AZM, Saya Lida and Natsuko Tora and went to a no contest with Momo Watanabe to rack up an impressive seven points.
On October 3, the star suffered heartbreak when friend and partner Konami turned on Kyona and Tokyo Cyber Squad, costing the stable a No Disqualification Match against Odeo Tai in which the rules stated that the losing group must disband.
One night later on October 4 at Stardom Nagoya Rainbow Fight, Kyona wrestled her final match when she teamed with Mayu Iwatani in a loss to Odeo Tai members, Bea Priestley and Natsuko Tora.
Her injury is not only unfortunate, but the timing couldn’t have been worse. With the evaporation of her Tokyo Cyber Squad stable, Kyona was ready to continue her association with STARS where she was slated for a rivalry with turncoat Konami based on a friendship turned sour.
Jungle Kyona is a former three time Artist of Stardom Champion and former three time Goddess of Stardom Champion.
Everyone at Inside the Ropes wishes her a safe and speedy recovery.
