On the latest episode of the AEW Unrestricted podcast, Dark Order members John Silver and Alex Reynolds joined hosts Aubrey Edwards and Tony Schiavone.

Throughout the episode, the two discussed many different topics with the hosts.

When talking about their first match in AEW they said:

We’re like, ‘Oh my god! This is our big shot, our big opportunity,’ and then we get there and it doesn’t even say our names on the board. It says ‘local talent.’ It said, ‘90 Seconds.’ So we’re like, ‘Ok, I guess this is a one and done,’ but then Matt Jackson came up to us after: ‘I’ve got an idea. Maybe you just kind of come back, and you’re the local talent everywhere, and you just always lose.’

Also when asked about The Exalted One, they revealed who was originally planned to take up the moniker:

The first person we heard of being The Exalted One was Matt Hardy, which we thought was awesome! Broken Matt! We’re like, ‘Oh this is gonna be like doing stuff at the Hardy Compound. This is gonna be awesome!’
