Julia Hart cannot be faulted for wanting to take on a championship match when the opportunity is presented, nor can she be blamed for her anger towards Griff Garrison in the above video. Clearly she does not want, nor need, a big brother to dictate her decisions, even if Griff had only the best of intentions. But you know where the road paved with good intentions can lead…
That being said, it is quite a shady deal coming from the TBS Champion’s representative “Smart” Mark Sterling. Of all the worthy challengers in the Women’s Division, Jade and Sterling of course hand-picked the one-eyed woman as the foe for the evening. There is little doubt that it was a purposeful selection, one strongly based on Hart’s current predicament caused by Malakai Black, but perhaps this situation has also had a positive effect on Julia.
She clearly is not willing to just sit back and let others tell her how to live, and Julia is obviously not going to let a championship opportunity pass her by regardless of the circumstances. Not too long ago, Hart may have been willing to let her Varsity Blond brothers dictate her actions, and she may have let this injury affect her willingness to fight, but not anymore.
So while Jade Cargill and Mark Sterling may be anticipating an easy fight due to that eye patch, they may be in store for a harder one than they would’ve gotten just a few months ago. It’s the biggest opportunity of Julia Hart’s career on many levels; the chance to become TBS Champion, the chance to be the one to end Cargill’s undefeated streak, and to do it all while coping with the eye patch.
