Paul Davis of WrestlingNews.co reported Raven is one of the favorites to be revealed as The Dark Order's exalted one.

Others in consideration for the role are Matt Hardy and Christopher Daniels. Raven could be seen watching from the arena floor, directly behind The Dark Order, on Wednesday's broadcast.

The former ECW world champion has a history of overseeing cult-like factions, his most prominent and successful being The Flock during his days in WCW. One of the smartest, most creative and cerebral performers of all-time, Raven would be an excellent choice for the role.

The fact that AEW social media hinted as strongly as it did at the possibility that Raven is the exalted one suggests that he will not be revealed to be the leader of the faction.

Still, there is a possibility he is and if so, AEW may benefit from having one of the most engaging and compelling performers in industry history on its show.

    He wouldn't be the worst option ever, but he wouldn't be my first or second pick either.

    Has to be Matt Hardy

    Hes definitely coming in, it's just how are they going to do it. I'm stating old news but it's no coincidence that JR referred to the Young Bucks as "Bucks of Youth" on Dynamite

    I'd love for Matt(and Jeff but moreso Matt) to come in with creative freedom and let him loose. However, up til this point the dark order has done nothing for me. Wasting Matt's(or even Raven's) creative genius on a cheesy group wouldn't be the best move.

    Plus they've only hinted at us for the last month and a half that it'll be Daniels turning on SCU.

    I'm pretty sure Raven has stated on his podcast that he has no interest in returning to tv wrestling in the past. He apparently has saved the money he's made or maybe his podcast is turning a profit for him. 

     

    They asked him if he would return for a Saudi show and he said he's fortunate that he has enough money to say that he wouldn't but that he doesn't blame wrestlers who do it who need the check. 

     

    I think Hardy would be the best choice since he can still take some bumps but either would be great at that role.

    As badly as Hardy is getting buried I’d guess him. 
     

    Raven would be a cool option though.

    They aren't letting Jeff go because they want to force him into rehab- which I agree with.

    At his age, I think he should be an agent or a writer before an on-air talent. People forget that he's been in the business since the Johnny Polo days.

    Well before that. He was Scotty the Body [hard to believe since he's gotten so dumpy] and Scotty Flamingo in WCW.
