Julia Hart Details Joining House Of Black
How Julia Hart came to join House of Black revealed
While she initially debuted in All Elite Wrestling alongside The Varsity Blonds, Julia Hart began to change after being misted by Malakai Black and she ended up joining the House of Black at Double or Nothing, helping the faction defeat Death Triangle at the pay-per-view.
Black misting Hart wasn't originally going to lead to her joining the stable, though, and the plan was only put together after she pitched it to Jerry Lynn.
"Oh my gosh, I was sitting on those stairs for months. I actually didn't know, I didn't [know if it was ever gonna happen]. I was like I'm just gonna keep doing me and hopefully we have to do something with this. I'm not gonna let this go to waste, this was a big moment. When it happened, when Malakai misted me, I was like 'I think I want to do something different.' Him misting me could create a whole story of me joining the House of Black. I think I told Jerry Lynn, I was like 'Wouldn't it be amazing if I joined House of Black?' He was like 'I think that would be cool,'" Hart said on the AEW Unrestricted podcast.
"At the time, I wasn't very close with Malakai and he's a very intimidating presence as it is, not in a bad way but in a good way. I wanted to tell him but I didn't know how he'd [perceive it]. So I told Jerry and I guess Jerry told him and he came to me and was like 'You wanna join House of Black? Do you like the cheerleading stuff, I thought you liked the cheerleading stuff?'. I was like 'No, I need something different. I need something new and I need something creative, I love dark sh*t. I love it all, I'm here for it.' He was like 'Oh okay, maybe draw out how'd you see the character and do a promo for me.' I love promos. I would love to talk more. So I did a promo and I showed him and he was like 'Oh okay, you have something.'
"That was pretty much it. I just kept the eye patch and sat for weeks and waited. I was like 'When is this ever gonna happen?' I honestly didn't know. I was just coming to work and doing my job. I just hoped that one day I could join. I was thinking I want something more and then it turned into what it is now."
Since joining the stable, Hart has been alongside House of Black for their big matches. The stable's future is currently uncertain, though, with both Malakai Black and Buddy Matthews currently away from AEW TV with reports noting they want to go back to WWE.
