Jungle Kyona leaves STARDOM

Oct 1, 2021 - by James Walsh

In an open letter posted to Twitter, Jungle Kyona announced that she is leaving STARDOM, where she has been wrestling for the last six years.

She wrote: “Dear everyone, it’s Jungle Kyona. It’s been a while since I’ve seen you. I’m sorry for the sudden announcement about my departure [from STARDOM]. As the official account has announced, I will be leaving Stardom, where I have been wrestling for about 6 years. I have betrayed the feelings of everyone who had been looking forward to my return to Stardom, Mayu, my rivals, and my proteges. I am truly sorry.

But I’m definitely continuing to move forward and I wanted to gain more experience and grow a lot as a person and as a wrestler. I’ve been trying to make a comeback in Stardom and this decision is unwavering. I will definitely make a return to professional wrestling somewhere on Earth. The ring is interconnected, so I’m sure I’ll be able to meet the Stardom wrestlers again somewhere else. Stardom is my passion; The players, staff and Mr. Ogawa. I think I was a relatively good girl, but I also caused a lot of trouble.

On the day I came back from Africa, I was warmly welcomed. And there where Jungle fans who cheered me on. Thank you so, so much for the irreplaceable memories of my six years at Stardom. I will never forget them. I will always, always love every single one of you. I was really glad that my last match with Stardom was a tag team match with Mayu in my hometown, Nagoya, a place I have a deep attachment towards. I hope to see you again someday, somewhere. I hope that you will support my path as Jungle Kyona in my new stage.”
