The Dance into Darkness.
The Julia Hart Journey.
Now that the dust has settled on AEW WrestleDream, another exhilarating night of Professional Wrestling, the entire Wrestling world is talking about the rise to stardom and perhaps the breakout match for Julia Hart as she challenged the TBS champion Kris Statlander. Once a fun-loving cheerleader who flanked the Varsity Blondes to the manipulative female member of The House of Black. Let’s take a dive into the AEW career path of Julia Hart and what makes her a force to be reckoned with.
Julia Hart is 21 years of age…. 21!!!!! She has the whole world in her hands and will win many championships across the globe. Julia’s hard work began as she was trained by Ken Anderson at SOPW (not a bad start in life right) followed by continued work at the highly acclaimed ‘Nightmare Factory’, Need I tell you more? No? I didn’t think so.
Julia made her in-ring debut beating Alyna Kyle in November 2019, just two weeks removed from her 18th Birthday. Hart then returned to training at the Nightmare Factory before having only her second match in March 2021 where she was on the losing side of a tag team match.
In May 2021, Julia Hart was signed to All Elite Wrestling where she began to feature heavily in the corner of the Varsity Blondes across both AEW Dynamite & AEW Dark. In the same month, Julia won her first singles match where she defeated Tesha Price on AEW Dark. Julia was later scheduled to compete in the annual Casino Battle Royale at All Out but unfortunately suffered a leg injury leading to a short stint on the sidelines.
When Julia returned from an injury she continued to flank the Varsity Blondes during the time of a very interesting and fun feud with the House of Black. Malakai Black spat black mist into Julia’s eyes which led to her wearing an eye patch for the following months and a slow character change as she slowly followed the light into the darkness.
The Julia Hart heel turn took its time and was incredible viewing for 5 months. During those 5 months of uncertainty, Julia challenged then-TBS Champion, Jade Cargill on a special edition of Rampage Beach Break. Julia also competed in the Owen Hart Cup where she was beaten by a former AEW Woman’s Champion, Hikaru Shida. Julia’s work was not going unnoticed. AEW finally pulled the trigger on the heel turn as Julia turned her back on the Varsity Blondes and aligned herself with the House of Black at Double or Nothing in May 2022.
The Rise of The Black Witch: Julia Hart
Since Joining the House of Black, Julia has gone on an unbelievable winning streak, going 28-0 before facing Kris Statlander for the TBS Championship at AEW WrestleDream.
Here at my top 3 Julia Hart matches:
So, that leaves me with one final question to answer, what is next for Julia Hart?
After her defeat at WrestleDream against Kris Statlander I can see Julia stepping up her game to challenge Statlander again, potentially as soon as Full Gear and taking the crown. If that is not the case, I would like to see Julia take Skye Blue under her wing and be a centrepiece in the inevitable heel turn which will then see her play a major part in the Sky Blue / Willow Nightingale feud.
