They are led by “The Exalted One” Mr. Brodie Lee and have an ever growing list of members including Evil Uno, Stu Grayson, John Silver, Alex Reynolds, Preston “10” Vance, Alan “5” Angels, Anna Jay, and Colt Cabana. There have also been henchmen dubbed as “Creepers” that have previously joined them in attacking their enemies. They also try and attempt to recruit real-life people outside of professional wrestling, even having their own website Joindarkorder.com.

By November the Dark Order began trying to recruit members to their team, using vignettes and posters on AEW: Dynamite and BTE (Being the Elite) on YouTube to indoctrinate those who were down on their luck. They would successfully recruit John Silver and Alex Reynolds and then would set their sights on Christopher Daniels. In January 2020 it was revealed a mysterious figure, only known as The Exalted One, was the true leader of The Dark Order. On 18th March The Exalted One would be revealed as Mr Brodie Lee, with his introduction the Dark Order would recruit Preston Vance in April and Alan Angels in June.
They would slowly indoctrinate Colt Cabana after he began a losing streak in May. By June Mr Brodie Lee had helped and extended a hand to Cabana to join the group, Cabana would we weary at first, not really knowing the full extent of what the group was capable of. Mr Brodie Lee would distract and hide things from him, even helping him pick up wins, proving that if you join the Dark Order your fortunes will improve. Colt Cabana became an official member of The Dark Order by the end of June. Around the same time, Anna Jay would be recruited as “99” by Brodie Lee himself, after she was defeated by Abadon, and at the start of September, they would invite Tay Conti to join them. On 22nd August Mr Brodie Lee would defeat Cody to become the second AEW TNT Champion. He would lose the belt back to Cody, in a Dog Collar match on 7th October.
