– Fightful Select recently spoke to indie wrestler Alex Gracia, who had high praise for late wrestler Hana Kimura. Gracia was highly complimentary of Kimura looking out for her when Gracia was in Japan.
Additionally, Gracia stated that Kimura wanted other wrestlers to speak English with her in order to help her practice. Kimura was actually trying to learn several languages, and her help made the process of working Japan easier for Gracia.
Kimura tragically passed away earlier this year after what what was believed to be a case of suicide.
