The Dark Order's "Exalted One" To Appear On Next Week's AEW Dynamite

It's in Rochester, New York. You know what that means.

The Exalted One

The identity of The Dark Order's leader, The Exalted One, will finally be revealed on next week's AEW Dynamite.

This was announced during last night's broadcast. Finally, after months of teasing, the driving force behind the divisive group is going to make himself known in Rochester, New York, which happens to be Brodie Lee's hometown.

Though this is by no means a guarantee that Lee will be revealed as the Order's figurehead, the 18 March show was reportedly pencilled in as his debut date weeks ago. It could all be a giant swerve, as AEW has already thrown out several red herrings when it comes to this angle, though Lee's odds are shortening by the day.


Christopher Daniels cut a quick promo mimicking The Dark Order's infomercials on last night's show, claiming, once again, that The Exalted One doesn't actually exist.

Also confirmed for next week is a tag match pitting Best Friends against The Lucha Brothers as the promotion continues to build to a trios bout also including Orange Cassidy and PAC, while The Inner Circle meet The Elite ahead of the following week's Blood and Guts special episode.
