Kimura wrestled for a number of promotions throughout her career, most notably with Stardom, which did a ten-count in tribute to Kimura on a show several weeks ago. Kimura has wrestled for Ring of Honor a handful of times, competing in the tournament to crown an inaugural Women Of Honor champion, losing to eventual tournament winner Sumie Sakai in the first round.
Kimura also wrestled at Madison Square Garden at the ROH/NJPW G1 Supercard in 2019 and also in a match at Wrestle Kingdom 14, teaming with Giulia to face Mayu Iwatani and Arisa Hoshiki in a tag team match.
