Strowman and Black were two recent WWE releases that took fans by surprise. Braun was Universal Champion a year ago and defeated Goldberg for the belt at WrestleMania 36. Black had recently made his return to WWE TV and was just starting to explore a completely new dimension to his character.
Speculation in regards to Aleister Black and Braun Strowman's future has been running wild ever since their release. A fan took to Twitter to ask Cody to pick one between Braun and Black to be revealed as the new leader of The Dark Order.
Cody replied by stating that both former WWE Superstars are bada**es but Brodie Lee's son Negative One is the leader of the stable. Check out the screengrab of the tweet below:
The late Brodie Lee was revealed as the leader of The Dark Order last year and did a pretty good job at it. He squashed Cody for the TNT title and held it for a while before losing it back to him.
Lee tragically passed away last year and his son Negative One has made several appearances for AEW since then.
Braun Strowman and Aleister Black's release didn't sit well with fans
When Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful first reported on Twitter that a bunch of releases were coming, no one was expecting the likes of Braun Strowman and Aleister Black to be the ones to make the dreaded list. Aleister Black had been absent from WWE TV since October 2020 and many of his fans had lost hope that he would ever be brought back.
He did return a short while ago on SmackDown and debuted a new gimmick as well. Black kicked off a feud with fan-favorite Big E but was released before things could move ahead with the rivalry.
