I love this gimmick of his. He's turned the dark order into a mixture of Wyatt Family, nWo, and Ministry of Darkness. Him eating that steak, and kicking a guy out of the room because he sneezed... It's like he is being a spoof on Vince. Though he did say something about someone not being the only out of touch old man he'd worked with.

I can't wait to see more from Brodie.

I liked the segment too. Loved the little dig at Vince, think this confirms Lee was very frustrated in WWE and left for this reason. 

What amazes me is that Lee seems to be a very accomplished promo guy yet WWE never let him talk, I don't remember him uttering a word during his whole time there. 

He has breathed some life into the Dark Order angle and he is a good fit for the gimmick.

Pretty good segment and I don't mind seeing Brodie Lee challenging Mox for the title, these two are capable of having a good match and Lee has been presented as a big deal so he needs to be up there challenging for the title to see if he can really hang in main events. 

Still not completely sold on the Dark Order it still feels like a low rent version of the Ministry of Darkness but Brodie has been pretty effective as the Exhalted One and it's good to see him getting plenty of mic time proving he is capable of a good promo. 

I don't expect a title change here but a good feud none the less.

Brodie Lee is a faction leader who leads by example it seems, instead of getting a lackey to take care of business for him.

I aren't sold on the finisher, which looks really tame in this day and age, but would have fit in back in the 80s when a DDT could win a match.

I don't think he's the name value to elevate those around him, but we will see.

I actually quite like a big clothesline as a finisher, it looks legit as you could genuinely take someones head off with one of those if you blasted them hard enough. 

The Dark Order could work well to build new talent with the team of Evil Uno and Stu Grayson and now 10 who is the muscle of the group, the others are just lackies but it plays into the cult style of the faction and gives some low rent talent a pay-day I guess. 

This is a better role for Brodie Lee than how WWE were using him and he has talent but he still needs to prove he is worthy of the push he is getting. I would have spent more time building him before facing Moxley, now AEW have used two WWE low card acts in Hager and Lee as the first challengers for Mox which doesn't bode well for their whole we won't be WWE-lite mantra.

Brodie Lee is moving into a Raven of Raven's Flock role now. It will be interesting to see how his role in Colt Cabanas story plays out. It's a good spot for him considering the loss as it shields him from any obvious moving up or down the card. Meanwhile he's right back to his role of mimicking Vince McMahon so it provides good entertainment.

I look forward to see what fans do yo influence his character once live audiences are allowed once again. I expect AEW and Huber himself to take a queue from inventive signs and chants that are bound to arise.

Anna whatever her name is now also being invited into The Flock, er Dark Order. I loved the flock in wcw, but it ended so badly that I'm looking forward to the prospect of seeing it done well here in AEW.

I think they should just abandon the Dark Order. It's not been well received and feels too much like a low rent version of Ravens Flock or the Ministry of Darkness. 

AEW is becoming faction heavy anyway, I would drop this group and have Brodie Lee repackaged as a solo act. If AEW want a dominant faction create a modern day Four Horseman built around Cody with Arn.

I like it. They just need to step away from Kevin Sullivan's Dungeon of Doom. This is no doubt his brain child, but as it evolves, I think it's getting more and more interesting all the time.

So ive been getting caught up on AEW and man Brodie nearly killed Cody live on TV - they made Lee look like absolute gold when he captured the TNT title.

His promo from this weeks AEW was also great and im loving how he is aggressive to other members of the dark order yet defends them to others - im quite enjoying his run in AEW
