AEW has been slowly teasing the Varsity Blondes/House of Black angle for months. Julia Hart in particular hasn’t been the same since she was hit with Malakai Black’s mist.
It built to an angle on the May 4 Dynamite in Baltimore, involving Brian Pillman Jr. shouting out his father’s old college roommate — head coach John Harbaugh of the NFL’s Ravens.
On #AEWDark, @FlyinBrianJr had some words for the #HouseOfBlack. Tonight, the #VarsityBlonds get to confront them here on #AEWDynamite LIVE on @TBSNetwork right now, as John Harbaugh looks on. pic.twitter.com/ojHR3N4ZbP— All Elite Wrestling (@AEW) May 5, 2022
Calling out the House of Black got Pillman & Griff Garrison House of Black. Malakai, Buddy Matthews & Brody King left the Blondes laying, and gave the group a chance to complete their corruption of Hart. Everything was going to plan, but then Julia just couldn’t bring herself to use a steel chair on Griff.
What turn of events! @TheJuliaHart is left quivering in the corner after HouseOfBlack's intimidation and the #DeathTriangle comes in for the save! #AEWDynamite is LIVE on @TBSNetwork! pic.twitter.com/t8YnEYZRxd— All Elite Wrestling (@AEW) May 5, 2022
She was left visibly shaken, and after House of Black’s rivals Death Triangle cleared the ring, we were left with questions. She hasn’t been turned yet, but as she milled about in the aftermath of that scene, can we really say she won’t at some point?
