Julia Hart Looks Back On Serious Injuries She Sustained While Doing Competitive Cheerleading

Julia Hart is one of the rising stars in the AEW women’s division, but the Witch of the House of Black used to live a very different life.

Hart spoke about her days as a competitive cheerleader during a recent interview on the Wilde On podcast. During her chat with host Taylor Wilde Hart revealed some serious injuries she sustained as a cheerleader, ones that kept her out of action for quite some time.

So I had two really bad ones (injuries while doing competitive cheerleading). One was my shoulder. I tore my labrum and I battled that for a really long time because it would pop out, it would pop back in and in cheer, we don’t have an off-season. Kind of like wrestling, there’s no off-season so if you’re out, you’re kind of screwed so I didn’t get surgery until like two years later of it being torn and I would just cheer with one arm. I would literally lift girls with one arm, do the full routine with one arm because I was like, I don’t want to be off and then I finally got the surgery and then I quit my senior year. Long story.

The second injury was a serious concussion. Hart says that her coaches still wanted her to compete even though she was in no condition to do so.

But then, in 8th grade, I got a really bad concussion. I was at the top of the stunt and I was supposed to switch my legs in the air and I totally missed it. The girls dropped me and I just landed on my head and then four days later, I’m in the hospital throwing up, because I told myself, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine because it was like our first competition that weekend too so I was like, oh, it’s my first year on varsity. I was like, ‘I can’t miss it’ and then, you know, if it’s your head, go take care of yourself and I’ve learned that now. It’s like, if it’s my head, I have to be honest with myself and take care of yourself because concussions are not something to mess with. I couldn’t even walk. It was literally like the worst concussion, and I’m in 8th grade so I’m just a little girl and I remember too, I’m in the hospital, sh*t (she laughed), it’s the day of the competition that I wake up and I’m throwing up and my coach, one of the cheer coaches calls my mom and goes, ‘Well can she just come quick and do a two minute — it’s just a two-minute routine. Can she just come do it?’ As I’m in the hospital, throwing up, can’t see and then like, ‘Mom, I gotta go.’ She’s like, ‘Are you kidding me!?’ And I’m like, ‘I gotta go, I gotta go. Two minutes, that’s all it is.’ I was like brainwashed in cheer. I was like, ‘I can do it.’
