The Dark Order's 'Exalted One' storyline rumbled on on last night's AEW Dynamite.
Recruits Alex Reynolds and John Silver were in the tag team battle royal, eliminating SoCal Uncensored during a distracting promo by their suit-clad motivational speaker, who was accompanied by Evil Uno and Grayson. SCU brawled with the Order in the aftermath, but the real story here is the hardcore legend caught on camera just a few rows away from the ring.
Eagle-eyed viewers caught none other than former ECW Champion Raven taking in the action, leading to speculation that he could soon be unveiled as 'The Exalted One.'
AEW is even leaning into the idea themselves, having posted the following tweet during the show:-
Raven would be an interesting and outside-the-box pick to lead The Dark Order. He's somebody few would even have considered beforehand and while his in-ring days are done, he's one of the best character guys of his era. If he's ready to go, he'd likely knock the role out of the park, and he definitely fits the group's cult vibe as well.
Matt Hardy and Brodie Lee have been been speculated as potential Dark Order leaders, though we'll have to wait and see.
