AEW's Julia Hart announces engagement to Lee Johnson

Hart appeared on Thursday's edition of AEW Unrestricted.

AEW's Julia Hart and Lee Johnson are engaged. 

Hart appeared on an episode of AEW Unrestricted released on Thursday and revealed the news. 

"We are engaged," Hart said of her relationship with Johnson. "Now, it sounds weird saying 'boyfriend,' I'm like, 'what?' he's my fiance. Nobody really knows that but we also don't care, but we also didn't make a huge post about it. Anyway, we did meet at the Nightmare Factory, we were just friends at first. Then one day he asked me, he's like, 'hey, do you want to get pizza and watch wrestling?' And I was like, 'sure.' I didn't really have any friends in Georgia so I was like, 'sure, I'm not doing anything.' Then the next thing you know we are literally hanging out until 7 a.m just talking and just clicking, having the best time ever." 

Johnson has been out of action since May with a knee injury. 

"He's the best, I don't know, I just couldn't ask for anyone better," Hart continued. "He's like my dream man. He just has everything I could ask for in a guy, it's great. I can't wait for him to come back."

It was later revealed on the show that Hart and Johnson became engaged "months ago" but had not announced the news publicly.  

Hart also addressed her character change from the Varsity Blondes cheerleader to the darker House of Black member. 

"Words can't explain how much I'm obsessed with my new character," Hart said. "I was a competitive cheerleader for six years and, you guys, I was so over it. I was so over cheerleading and being on the sidelines and cheering for someone else."

"I just needed something different and new and a different side of me that I can pull from and it's crazy how being with House of Black, how creative everyone is and just being around that environment of those people, and I'm constantly learning from all of them."
