Factions have been a big part of AEW Dynamite since its inception twelve months ago.
The two most prominent have been the Inner Circle and The Dark Order but others, such as Team Taz and Eddie Kingston’s crew are growing in prominence.
Another stable growing, in both prominence and numbers, is The Nightmare Family, Cody’s loose band of allies that has included his wife Brandi Rhodes, brother Dustin, QT Marshall and Arn Anderson.
Cody announced today a total of three new members joining their group.
The first announcement was the father/son team of Billy and Austin Gunn, known as The Gunn Club joining the team. The two had already been scheduled to partner with Cody to face The Dark Order on next week’s edition of Dynamite.
The third new member of the day is 22-year old newcomer Lee Johnson. This inclusion is out of left field but clearly shows the faith AEW have in Johnson. He has made numerous appearances on Dynamite and Dark over recent months, all in losing efforts. But this inclusion sees Johnson move into the limelight in the company.
