Re: Raven appreciation thread

Does anyone have that Raven video where hes talking about his feud with dreamer and he constantly calls him fat? Its funny as hell.

Also had a friend who got to meet and hang with raven a long time ago, said he was chill and just a nice ass guy.

Re: Raven appreciation thread

I remember first getting WCW/NWO Revenge when it came out, back then we didn't have Sky Television so the only wrestling I got was months old WWF PPVs on video and had no clue about ECW nor what was going on in WCW. After a few days of going Hogan, Diesel, Razor Ramon and being amazed by the Luchas (bare in mind, I honestly only knew the old WWF guys,) I decided to go Raven one day and something about that DDT made him instantly one of my favourite wrestlers without even seeing him ever wrestle or speak. (I had of course, but didn't know he was Johnny Polo.)

I followed him after that through old ECW and WCW.

I even enjoyed his WWF run but it was watered down completely. Raven was a big deal in ECW and WCW, Im sure if he hadn't been watered down he could have really been something interesting during the invasion. I remember the Debut of the What promo from Stone Cold just wanting Raven to branch off and DDT Austin. That was never the character.

Great gimmick, decent wrestler. Even in TNA he had a good run.

Re: Raven appreciation thread

Raven is one the best three-dimensional characters of all-time. Top notch promo skills, in-ring psychology/story-telling, great angles and edgy storylines... he had it all... I hope he continues to keep giving back to the business and helping the young guys out... he was one of the coolest characters, seriously, hands down the guy was extremely underrated

Dark days for his career indeed, as he probably only did it to pay for his drug fix that night, but Raven and Disco still put on a good show considering the circumstances...
Itís no coincidence Raven and Disco squared off a few times in WCW. They had surprisingly good chemistry.

Re: Raven appreciation thread

I honestly saw him for a few weeks in 1989. In my local promotion Vancouver all star wrestling. He was known as Scotty the Body, but apparently had a falling out with the promoter the infamous Al Tomko. I loved all of his work except his run as raven in WWE. This killed his character somewhat permanently to me. Felt TNA should have let him keep the belt longer back in 2005 though.
