Julia Hart has the potential to be a star for AEW in the future


Julia Hart is showing the potential to be a future star for All Elite Wrestling

Since joining AEW, Julia Hart has shown much promise, whether from her natural athletic ability or character work, and her future continues to get brighter.

When Hart joined AEW 2021, she sporadically appeared on AEW’s YouTube show, AEW Dark, and television show, AEW Dynamite. Using her real-life cheerleading background, where she is a two-time National Cheerleading Champion, as her gimmick, she was aligned with Brian Pillman Jr. and Griff Garrison, forming The Varsity Blondes.

She had her first AEW match in April 2021, where Kris Statlander defeated her on Dark. Her first AEW television match came at the special Blood and Guts Dynamite episode in a losing effort to Britt Baker. Hart gained her first AEW win when she defeated Tesha Price on Dark in May 2021.

Julia Hart is the future of AEW’s Women’s Division.

The turning point of Hart’s career came with the House of Black. On April 8th, 2022, when the House of Black (Malakai Black, Brody King, and Buddy Matthews) confronted the Varisty Blondes, Black spat black mist into Hart’s eyes, causing her to wear an eye patch and later showed signs of opposition to Pillman and Garrison. After weeks of hinting at a possible turn from Hart, it all came together at the Double or Nothing PPV in May as the House of Black faced off against Death Triangle (PAC, Penta Oscuro, and Rey Fénix). In the match’s closing moments, the lights went out and returned to reveal Hart, who sprayed PAC with the black mist, officially marking her joining the House of Black.

Since joining the House, Hart turned from a bubbly cheerleader to a gothic, almost witch-like woman, as her entire aesthetic and entrance music turned darker. She also adopted a more aggressive in-ring style, including her brutal, Hartless submission move, which has allowed her to win 18 straight matches. Despite her impressive record from last year to now, she has not had a TV match since her turn. With her impressive showings on Dark over the past year, many fans think she is more than TV ready.

In an interview on the AEW Unrestricted podcast conducted last year, Hart spoke about her character change and how much she loves it:

"“Words can’t explain how much I’m obsessed with my new character. I was a competitive cheerleader for six years and you guys, I was so over it. I was so over cheerleading. Being on the sideline and cheering for someone else, I was so sick of it. I wasn’t even creative anymore with it. I did have a lot of ideas of where we could have gone with that, but I just needed something different and new and a different side of me that I can pull from. It’s crazy how being with the House Of Black and how creative everyone is and just being around in that environment of those people. I’m constantly learning from all of them. It’s just such a new environment that I needed as a young little rookie. I’m just constantly learning and excited to do things with them. It’s really great. If you would have told me I was joining House Of Black a year ago I would have been like ‘You’re crazy, what?’. It’s just a dream, I love it. I’m obsessed with everything we do.”"

Julia Hart has since become an integral part of the House of Black, adding more to their whole aesthetic and helping distract opponents, allowing her teammates to gain the advantage. While some may have doubted that a small, blonde girl would fit in with the muscular and tattooed men of the House of Black, she was the missing piece nobody knew they needed. While her male stablemates recently became the AEW World Trios Champions, Hart has yet to find gold. However, that is bound to change in the future.

AEW Women’s division has many established stars, and while Julia Hart is not at that level just yet, she is only 21 years old, and as she continues to get better and better, in and outside the ring, her future gets brighter.
