Former TNA Knockout Ayako Hamada has been sentenced to 18 months in jail in Japan due to possession of stimulants. Japan takes drug offenses very seriously hence the lengthy jail sentence.
Last year Hamada claimed she would be missing a Pro-Wrestling WAVE due to being held at knifepoint it later transpired that she tested positive for drugs. This lead to the promotion ending their working relationship with her.
She is a Two-time TNA Knockouts Tag Team Champion.
