Since the passing of Brodie Lee in December 2020, The Dark Order has operated differently. Now babyfaces, the group continues to try and recruit Adam Page to the fold but not for the role of leader. That belongs to -1, Brodie Lee Jr.
Responding to a fan question on Twitter as to whether or not Aleister Black or Braun Strowman could be headed to the promotion to lead the group, Cody Rhodes stated that he feels there is only one leader of the group and it is -1.
Those guys are both bad asses - BUT Negative One is the leader of The Dark Order https://t.co/seHkvM2gXT— Cody (@CodyRhodes) June 11, 2021
On the most recent AEW Unrestricted, -1 clarified his stance as leader despite the fact that his mother sometimes claims that she is the leader of The Dark Order now.
“My mom says that she’s the actual leader, but I argue with her a lot ‘cause she says she’s the leader. But I’m actually the leader because I’m the second generation of my dad, and my dad was the leader.”
Recently, -1 was given a Dark Order Championship belt. Learn more about that here.
