Julia Hart Makes AEW History With TBS Title Win At Full Gear

At AEW Full Gear, Julia Hart captured her first-ever professional wrestling championship almost four years to the day of her debut. Hart was part of a three-way match for the AEW TBS Championship against defending champion Kris Statlander and Skye Blue, who Hart pinned to get the victory. Statlander managed to hit the Saturday Night Fever but Hart quickly pushed her off of Blue and stole the pinfall to capture the belt.

On top of this marking Hart’s first championship win of her professional wrestling career, the win also allowed her to make AEW history by setting a brand new record within the promotion. At just 22 years old, Hart is now the youngest champion ever in AEW history, beating Riho for the record who was also 22 when she became the inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion back in 2019. However, Hart is younger than Riho was at that time by a mere three months.

This marked the second title change to take place at the pay-per-view. Earlier in the show, Toni Storm became a three-time AEW Women’s World Champion by defeating Hikaru Shida thanks to a small metal tray in her tights making her running hip attack even more deadly. The show also saw the announcement that Will Ospreay had signed with AEW as well as a surprise in-person appearance from Adam Cole – who was later added to the show’s main event!
