Besides being perhaps the female wrestler most closely resembling fellow afro-sporting wrestler Mohammed Yone (although neither still have them), Kyoko Kimura is also a 6-year veteran or puroresu and is a former NEO Tag Team Champion. She held the title in 2006 with Amazing Kong (Awesome Kong). She competes primarily for NEO, although she is a freelancer and her primary affiliation actually is with Big Japan (she makes a once-in-a-while appearance there).
Kimura will be inactive starting May 23, 2010 due to taking an extended hiatus to rest nagging injuries. It’s not yet known how long she’ll be out but she has already said that she will return at some point down the road as part of her faction, Revolucion Amandola, which is producing their first show in May 2010 and may do more later on.
Kimura will return on August 29, 2010.
