Alan Angels Speaks On The Differences Between Dark Order And Violent By Design

Alan Angels is violent by design.

Alan Angels was number five in the Dark Order in AEW since joining the group in 2020. On June 30th, his contract expired and he left the company. Angels then showed up in IMPACT Wrestling in July to challenge Mike Bailey for the X-Division Title. He wrestled again for IMPACTin October but on November 3rd, he was officially revealed as a part of Violent By Design. Speaking on the Paltrocast With Darren Paltrowitz, Angels was asked if he had any hesitation about joining another faction after his previous run with Dark Order. He joked that he might have had a little PTSD, but he views this new opportunity as a chance to potentially stand out and showcase his skills.

A little bit. I think I might have a little PTSD just from being in the Dark Order, but the thing about the Dark Order is there’s so many people. It’s very easy to get lost in the shuffle, and all those guys are so talented. Like I said, it’s just easy to get lost in the shuffle. With this, though, Violent By Design, now there’s only three of us. So I feel like there’s an opportunity for me to take a bigger role in the faction and showcase what I can do and as a promo, and just as a talent in general. So I’m super excited for it,”

Angels continued to speak about the differences between the groups.

It does have a very different feel. It feels like we’re a main-event faction. We each have our own important role in the group,
