Scrapped Plans on The Leader of The Dark Order

Scrapped Plans on The Leader of The Dark Order
The final episode of AEW Dynamite for 2019 ended with The Dark Order, a cult-like group led by Evil Uno and Stu Grayson, attacking many of AEW's top stars, which you can watch in the video below.

According to the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the idea for the segment, which had been critically panned, was for Marty Scurll to be revealed as the leader of The Dark Order.

Obviously, those plans changed once Marty signed a new deal with Ring of Honor following his contract expiring in November. In addition to being a talent for ROH, Scurll will help take on booking and creative duties. That is not to say that something can't work out where he could be in The Dark Order, however, as one of Scurll's goals is to try and for a working relationship between ROH and AEW.

As previously reported, there has been speculation of Matt Hardy becoming the leader of The Dark Order once his WWE contract expires on March 1st, should he not re-sign.
