Hiren is the 2nd-oldest member of Sendai Girls who, like most of the other roster members, is a 5-year veteran of puroresu, having competed for Sendai Girls their entire career to date, although starting in late summer 2009 she began regular participation in OZ Academy. Her most notable match to date was probably her wrestling debut match, which came on Sendai Girls’ first-ever event against joshi veteran Mariko Yoshida.
Hiren suffered a back injury in December 2009 and missed about 4 months of action, returning to competition in April 2010. She won the JWP Jr. Title & POP Title in Sendai Girls in September 2010, beating fellow Sendai Girl Ryo Mizunami for the titles.
Since dropping the titles to stablemate Kagetu in early 2011, Hiren has become more of a heel and has aligned herself with Yumi Ohka’s heel faction that spreads across various promotions. With Sendai Girls being inactive in early-mid 2011 due to the 3/11/11 earthquake & tsunami she has primarily been competing in OZ Academy, but also has appeared in WAVE.
Hiren will retire on November 8, 2011. She cited her previous back injury as one of the main reasons she’s retiring at what is still a very young age.
