The Dark Order: Tony Khan Treats Brodie Lee Jr. Like Any Other AEW Wrestler | Cultaholic Wrestling

It is worth reminding fans that AEW’s Dark Order doesn’t ‘need a new leader’, as the group/former cult is safe in the capable hands of -1 aka Brodie Lee Jr. Tony Khan himself is apparently trusting of the young Brodie, and according to the Dark Order themselves, Tony treat Brodie Lee Jr. like any other wrestler on the roster.

“He's ten and already knows way more than most people in Canada. He knows how to form a wrestling promo, he knows where cameras are, he understands motion in the ring. He's training already,” said Evil Uno on a special Art of Wrestling from the Jericho Cruise.

Colt Cabana agreed, adding: “Tony Khan will talk… Negative One is going out there to do something and Tony talks to him like he would talk to any other wrestler. You're like, ‘Tony, he's a 10-year-old child.’ Tony is like, ‘Go out, face hard cam, open up, do a good promo’ ‘Okay, no problem,’ and he nails it.”

Having grown up around wrestling his whole life, Brodie Jr. was ready to go as soon as AEW gave him the green light, with Stu Grayson reminiscing about one of his first promos in the company:

“One of the first promos he ever cut, we were super nervous because we're like, ‘What is this child going to say in his first promo?’ Tony is like, ‘You got six, grab the mic, talk some trash, set up a match for the future.’ We're like, ‘Tony, what are you? This is insane.’ First thing Negative One says is, ‘I'm going to say that and I'm gonna let it sink in because the crowd needs to register. Then I'm gonna turn to the cam.’ I'm like, ‘How do you know these things? How does that even make sense?’ We go out there and I think he was dissing Luther and he says something, the crowd goes up, and he looks at us like, ‘I f****** did it guys!’ He was good.”
