AEW's Dark Order appears to be on the verge of finally revealing the identity of their so-called 'Exalted One' to the world, with last week's Dynamite bringing the promises that the divisive group's leader will soon be revealed.
The promotion's digital marketing team have gone into overdrive when it comes to putting this over across the past few days, dropping all kinds of teases across numerous platforms, including this one in the small hours of Tuesday morning:-
As translated by Twitter user @yauchester1 in the replies, this is binary code for "JOIN DARK ORDER."
More interesting, the time this tweet went out nods towards a certain WWE Superstar's involvement in the group. Gary Cassidy was the first to point this out:-
It should also be noted that AEW tried to turn fans in the direction of New Japan's Lance Archer with this tweet yesterday, quoting the big man's "everybody dies" catchphrase.
Hardy's name has been brought up countless times when it comes to this specific role. If he is 'The Exalted One' and doesn't have a non-compete clause on his WWE contract, he should theoretically be able to show up in AEW as soon as next week, though the volume of red herrings AEW has dropped recently will keep fans guessing until the Dark Order's leader is finally unveiled.
