Ray (born February 14, 1982) is a Hong Kong professional wrestler, who is currently working as a freelancer on the Japanese independent circuit.
She is a former International Ribbon Tag Team Champion and CMLL-Reina International Junior Champion. After being trained by Emi Sakura, Ray made her professional wrestling debut in September 2003 and would for the next several years wrestle under different masks, before she began working for Smash in March 2010, unmasked under the ring name Lin Byron (Japanese: リン・バイロン, Chinese: 林白龍) (sometimes transliterated as Lin Bairon). She remained with Smash until the promotion folded in March 2012, after which she transferred over to its successor, Wrestling New Classic (WNC), which lasted until June 2014. In April 2013, Byron became the third WNC Women's Champion. She revived the Ray character in January 2011, initially signing with Ice Ribbon, before becoming a freelancer in May 2012. She has since mainly worked for the Reina Joshi Puroresu promotion, while also promoting her own independent events and traveling to the United States to work for Shimmer Women Athletes.
Outside of professional wrestling, Ray sings and plays the piano and has composed several songs of her own, which she has performed at special fan gatherings she has thrown.
On May 31, 2015, Ray took part in NPCJ's Blaze Open bodybuilding competition, where she finished second in the women's athlete category, beating fellow professional wrestlers Command Bolshoi and Meiko Satomura, who finished third and fourth, respectively.
On September 26, 2012, Byron helped arrest a sex offender on board the Shōnan-Shinjuku Line train. At around 10:00 a.m. Byron noticed a man "stroking his genitals" in the crowded train, grabbed the man in a wrist lock, got him out of the train and handed him off to the police.
In December 2015, Ray was diagnosed with a brain tumor after going to an MRI following a concussion. She underwent a brain biopsy to determine the nature of the tumor on January 21, 2016.
On February 17, Ray announced that the biopsy had determined that the tumor was a malignant Stage III tumor. Due to the cancer cells being attached to nerves, the tumor was also inoperable. Ray then began undergoing radiation therapy until the end of April. She stated that she was planning to return to wrestling at an FMW event on May 5, 2017, a date where Hayabusa was planning to make his return before his death. On May 6, Ray underwent emergency surgery for hydrocephalus.
