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.
