AEW Star Reveals He Originally Auditioned To Be "The Exalted One" In The Dark Order Before Mr. Brodie Lee


As noted, Chaos Project appeared as guests on the latest edition of AEW Unrestricted, the official podcast for All Elite Wrestling, for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

In addition to the highlights from comments Serpentico made during the interview that we published here on the website recently, the other half of the duo, Luther, spoke about auditioning to be the man revealed as "The Exalted One" for The Dark Order faction before the promotion ultimately settled on the late Jon Huber (Mr. Brodie Lee).

Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where he touches on this particular topic.

"I get a call from Chris Jericho, and he says that they’re looking maybe for a manager for a new group they’re putting together, Dark Order. He had brought my name up, and they were interested in it. I sent in an audition tape, and they liked it and wanted to see another one. So, I sent another one in. They liked it. So, I sent another one in, and then they brought me in to do a screen test, but then there were some other people also in the running for the same gig. Even just that alone I thought was really cool to be mentioned with all those people, and they said that they liked it. I didn’t know about the group, so I watch some tapes of [Evil] Uno and Stu [Grayson]. I kind of did something to what they were doing at the time, which isn’t anything like what they’re doing now. So, I was teaching at a school in Salem, and so I just had the students kind of be creepers or whatever. I used them for my audition tape. My direction was completely different than the way Brodie [Lee] did or the way anybody else did it. It was kind of I guess more mystical. But when I got brought out, they still liked all the interviews and ended up in Brandi [Rhodes] group."
