The Dark Order has been a faction without a leader in AEW for some time now. After the passing of Brodie Lee, the group hasn’t had anyone step up and take control. The Dark Order has shown an affinity for AEW World Champion Adam Page, but the friendship is where it stops.
Fans have speculated since shortly after Brodie Lee passed away that there might be a new leader of the Dark Order that would soon emerge. One of the more popular theories is that Bray Wyatt will show up eventually to head the group. One member of the Dark Order says that isn’t going to happen.
John Silver recently talked to Barstool’s Rasslin’ podcast. Silver addressed the endless guessing about who will take over the Dark Order. John says nobody has been right so far.
“I hate that so much. We get tweets like that all the time. For a while, it was like anyone that got released from WWE was going to be the next leader, so I would just make tweets like, ‘Oh, I guess Adam Cole’s the next leader of the Dark Order!’ Anyone that doesn’t make sense. ‘Oh, it’s going to be Bray [Wyatt] right?’ No, it’s not.”
The Dark Order faced some difficult times recently as group members go involved in in-fighting. The group eventually were able to work out their differences after teasing a split. Some leadership could go a long way for the group.
John Silver doesn’t think any of the speculation is worth talking about. For the time being, Silver says there are no plans to have a former WWE talent take over the role. Any rumors going around otherwise are simply speculation.
