"For the record, I've probably been bullied and hated on by more a—holes than ANYONE in my business on social media," Sunny wrote via Ringside News. "I've been called some of the most horrific names and words out there. Not ONCE did I ever think of killing myself over it. I would never give them that much power. What do I do instead?? Thrive and make even MORE money and make them eat their words… Haters give ME power."

Sunny, who's real name is Tamara Lynn Sytch, was recently released from prison after a long string of legal issues.

Before her death, the 22-year-old posted self-harm photos along with a message. "Nearly 100 frank opinions every day. I couldn't deny that I was hurt. I'm dead. Thank you for giving me a mother. It was a life I wanted to be loved. Thank you to everyone who supported me. I love it. I'm weak, I'm sorry. I don't want to be a human anymore. It was a life I wanted to be loved. Thank you everyone, I love you. Bye," she wrote.

World Wonder Ring Stardom, the Japanese promotion company with whom she wrestled, issued a statement.

"Stardom fans,

We are very sorry to report that our Hana Kimura has passed away.

Please be respectful and allow some time for things to process, and keep your thoughts and prayers with her family and friends.

We appreciate your support during this difficult time."

"Just woke up to this awful news. There are no words to appropriately describe just how tragic the passing of Hana Kimura is," Kevin Owens tweeted. "She was an extremely talented performer and by all accounts, a great person and a kind soul. My thoughts go out to her friends and family."
