It had been speculated upon, and now it's happened: the former Luke Harper has turned up in All Elite Wrestling.
Brodie Lee was revealed as "The Exalted One" that leads The Dark Order, capping off an angle that resulted in the beatdown of Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian of SCU on Wednesday night's AEW Dynamite.
Evil Uno prepared to reveal The Exalted One when Daniels interrupted him, running down the idea of the Exalted One's existence, and claimed there was no such person. He was then interrupted by a promo video showing a hooded figure, who rebuked Daniels, and notably stated that Daniels wasn't "...the first out-of-touch old man to not believe in him", but that he would be the last one.
Following the reveal of Brodie Lee in the video, they cut back to the ring, where he stood with Evil Uno and Stu Grayson. They then commenced the attack on Daniels and Kazarian.
Wednesday's episode of Dynamite was to have originally taken place in Rochester, NY, which happens to be Brodie Lee's hometown.
As Luke Harper, Lee last wrestled for WWE at a live event in November. He was officially released from the company on December 8, eight months after requesting his release.
