Former Impact Wrestling Knockouts Tag Team Champion Ayako Hamada has been given a prison sentence. According to Yahoo! Japan, Hamada, a former two-time Impact Wrestling Knockouts Tag Team Champion, has been sentenced to 18 months in prison on drug charges. Hamada, The 37 year old pro wrestling veteran and daughter of the legendary Gran Hamada, was arrested at her home in Tokyo back on May 13th. This led to her Pro Wrestling Wave departure and Sendai Girls Pro Wrestling stripping her of their world title.

Police were called to Hamada's home back in May after she told a promoter that she would miss their event because she was being held at knifepoint by someone. Police found Hamada acting strange and that led to her testing positive for drugs. She admitted taking drugs through her nose.
