John Silver Says Recently Released WWE Star Will Not Lead Dark Order


Speaking to Barstool Rasslin’, Dark Order’s John Silver talked about the speculation that Bray Wyatt, who was let go by WWE last year, could be brought into AEW to be the new leader of the group due to his history with the original leader, the late great Brodie Lee. 

“I hate that so much. We get tweets like that all the time,” Silver said. “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.”

Silva did acknowledge that the storyline behind the group doesn’t make any sense anymore. 

“It doesn’t even make sense really. This wouldn’t happen I think anywhere else,” Silver said. “It was supposed to be just a me and a Brodie thing, but obviously we didn’t really get to do that at all. They would see me and Brodie being funny, so they’d have to bring it out too. Stu has his thing, Uno has his thing, Ten, Five, all that. I don’t even know. It was just like a switch. Because BTE is so popular with the fans, we couldn’t be spooky anymore. The crowd’s going to cheer us. We have to go in a different direction.”
