Thus in March 2020, when Jon made his debut for All Elite Wrestling as “The Exalted One” of The Dark Order, the anticipation of what was to come ran high both for fans as well as his fellow wrestlers. That impact was felt immediately as Jon became TNT Champion, led The Dark Order to a new level of prominence within AEW, and helped bring a whole new level of exposure to the men and women who comprise the group. Behind the scenes, Jon brought a joy to the AEW locker room unlike any other, and during one of the most trying times this world has experienced, he made an impression that will not soon be forgotten.
Jon was a man who left a tremendous impact on all those he encountered, as evidenced by the outpouring of love and support from the wrestling community, both fan and wrestler alike, when he tragically passed away on December 26, 2020. Even during his all too brief tenure with All Elite Wrestling, Jon's presence in the locker room touched the lives of so many men and women, and truly helped make AEW a family. To this day, his wrestling legacy is felt within the members of The Dark Order, it is seen in gaming forms with AEW Elite General Manager, and memorialized in toy form with AEW Unmatched.
Jon's legacy is also felt whenever Negative One graces the AEW audience, as well as the locker room, with his presence, bringing a joy with him that resonates throughout the AEW family. And with this foundation, Jonathan Huber will continue to make an impact on the lives of so many.
