AEW is yet to pull the trigger on its 'Devil' reveal, though the personnel currently under the masks and black bodysuits are those who will eventually be revealed as the perpetrators of the company's divisive, ongoing storyline.

This is per Fightful Select in the outlet's Select Portions column. According to the writeup:

- It was reiterated to us that as of last week, the talent that are slated to play the "devils" on AEW TV were still being portrayed by those under the mask.

Multiple people clad in MJF's 'Devil' mask have been plaguing the AEW World Champion for several months now, first intervening during the recent rivalry with 'Switchblade' Jay White, which culminated at last month's Full Gear pay-per-view. The group's apparent ringleader is 'The Devil' themself, though they are joined by at least three others onscreen.

MJF and uneasy ally Samoa Joe were to face two of the Devil's henchmen on this Wednesday's Dynamite, though the match never happened. The group had Joe surrounded in the ring at one stage, though they disappeared under the veil of darkness, with the big screen showing MJF laid out beside a broken bottle backstage.

There is currently no word on who, exactly, is to be revealed as 'The Devil' in AEW. Could even be Satan himself. Wahey!
