I’d call it noteworthy. Wrestling is in a weird place when it comes to the sports world, as it is predetermined and considered something closer to theater than anything else. That is the kind of thing that can make it difficult to get some attention, but every now and then you get something positive. That is the case again, as AEW has managed to get some literal front page coverage.
There have been a lot of things taking place in AEW since its debut and some of those have been far better than others. Some of those things have started off slowly and then gotten better with time, which seems to be the case with the Dark Order. The team has gone from a group of lackeys with no leader to the army of Brodie Lee to a decent team as Lee has disappeared. That is quite the path and now someone is noticing.
The Dark Order’s Evil Uno (Nicholas Dansereau) and Stu Grayson (Marc Dionne) were featured on the cover of the Sunday edition of the Ottawa Sun newspaper. The pair received a featured article, talking about how the pair came from Quebec, Canada and their rise through the independent circuit to AEW. In addition to being in the newspaper, the article is available on the paper’s website.
The team has done well. Check out both of them in action:
Opinion: That’s a pretty cool accomplishment for the two of them, or at least some great exposure. Just getting to see two wrestlers on the cover of a newspaper is a rare enough sight and it is cool that they are getting to do this. The two, as well as the group as a whole, have come a long way and it would be great to see the two of them getting to do something a little different to see what they can do.
What do you think of the idea? What is next for the Dark Order? Let us know in the comments below.
