AEW has a close-knit roster, and a few sets of couples are backstage as well. Now, one of those couples is set to make things official.

During her time on AEW’s Unrestricted podcast, Julia Hart dropped a big piece of news. She is engaged to fellow AEW star Lee Johnson. It turns out that this was a relationship made in the Nightmare Factory.

“We are engaged. It sounds weird saying boyfriend. He’s my fiance. Nobody really knows that, but we also don’t care. We also didn’t make a huge post about it. We did meet at The Nightmare Factory. We were just friends at first, and then one day he asked me, ‘Do you want to get pizza and watch wrestling?’ I said, ‘Sure. I don’t really have any friends in Georgia so sure, I’m not really doing anything.’

Then next thing you know we hung out until 7am just talking and clicking having the best time ever. I think the next day was The Showcase for The Nightmare Factory and then I actually left for a week. So we just clicked, and then I had to go back to Minnesota. He’s the one who actually told me I was supposed to come to TV. He said, ‘Hey, they’re talking about you at the school saying you’re supposed to be at TV.’ I said, ‘Ok, I’ll move down to Georgia.’


He said, ‘Ok.’ Then we hung out every single day and probably weren’t apart for months. He’s the best. I couldn’t ask for anyone better. He’s my dream man. He has everything I can ask for in a guy. He’s great.”

We’re sending out our biggest congratulations to the happy couple from everyone here at Ringside News.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
