That’s where we’re going. There are very few things in wrestling as entertaining as finding out who is under a hood. It becomes a question of wondering who the mystery person could be and that can lead to some very fun ideas. The mystery might not even be a mask, but rather waiting to find out who you haven’t met yet. The latter is the case at the moment, but it will end next week.
One of the more intriguing stories in AEW’s brief history has been that of the Dark Order. The group is a bit of a cult, with its members talking about improving their lives while attacking other wrestlers. At the same time though, the group says that they are serving their leader, known as the Exalted One. The person’s identity remains a secret, though that will not be the case much longer.
This week on Dynamite, it was announced that the identity of the Dark Order’s Exalted One will be unveiled on next week’s Dynamite. It has not been made clear what the Exalted One will be doing on the show. At the moment, there have been no official indications as to the identity, other than the person is a man. Various names have been suggested as the Exalted One, including Brodie Lee and Matt Hardy.
The Exalted One has been teased before. Check out some of the previous moments:
Opinion: This is something that could go in a variety of ways as you never know who the big reveal might be. That opens up so many different doors to the whole thing and if the reveal lives up to the hype, they could be in a great place. The Dark Order has been hit and miss so far, but a good reveal on the leader could be what they need. At the same time it could be a big letdown, but they certainly have my interest.
