The term “Dark Order” became a trending topic on Twitter with fans reacting to the news. Here were a few of the comments…
@AndyNemmity: “We all make jokes about WWE wishing people best on their future endeavors, but at least we know what’s happening. People just disappearing is worse, especially for a well loved, organic team like the Dark Order.”
@PatrickEireWres: “Do I think TK could have done more with the Dark Order? Yes. Do I think it’s a travesty that he didn’t? No. They obviously didn’t want them to be saddled to Hangman forever and without a leader they were always going to struggle.”
@P1AllElite: “TK fumbled with Dark Order. They coulda been so much more.”
