It was announced earlier that the Dark Order will reveal the identity of their leader The Exalted One on this week’s Dynamite. Many were expecting it to be Matt Hardy, however, it was someone else.
It was revealed on this week’s episode of Dynamite that Brodie Lee is the Dark Order’s Exalted One. The former Luke Harper appeared in a video wearing a long hooded jacket and warned the members of the AEW roster, especially Christopher Daniels.

Lee then appeared in the ring and attacked Christopher Daniels to make his presence felt. Interestingly, before Lee delivered a devastating Lariat to Daniels, he held him in a similar way that Bray Wyatt holds his opponent’s heads before delivering Sister Abigail.
Many fans are wondering if this was done intentionally as an ode to Wyatt.

It will be interesting to see how Brodie Lee is booked as the leader of the Dark Order. The Exalted One had a lot of hype behind him before the reveal and it will be quite the task to uphold the same hype moving forward.
Either way, the Exalted One is here and he’s surely made his presence felt in the company.
