On March 1, Matt Hardy confirmed his WWE contract had expired and he was now officially a free agent. Since then, Hardy has not explicitly said he is set to sign with All Elite Wrestling, but both parties have released numerous teasers suggesting that he will be revealed as Dark Order's Exalted One.
In the past two episodes of Free The Delete, The Young Bucks helped bury the shell of Matthew Hardy in an attempt to save Zenith in Matt's battle against Abomination. The Broken One seems to have lost this battle, however, as the second coming of Hardy was resurrected over the weekend.
With The Exalted One set to be revealed on this week's episode of Dynamite, both AEW and Hardy have again published a number of teasers. During the latest edition of ROAD TO DYNAMITE, Peter Avalon and Leva Bates investigated the identity of Dark Order's leader, and as the camera panned through their suspects, Hardy could be seen along with Stephen Amell and Marty Scurll, among others. Soon after, Matt tweeted "Dominant, Extraordinary, Tenacious, Limitless, Almighty, Xaroncharoo, Everlasting," in which the first letters of each word spell EXALTED backwards.
Ultimately all the teases look set to end as The Exalted One will be revealed during tonight's broadcast of AEW: Dynamite.
