  • One of the greatest extreme wrestlers ever

    How would I describe Raven? Well, first I would say that he really is a talented wrestler. He isn't afraid to be extreme. This is what sets him apart from other wrestlers. He's made great contibutions is hardore wrestling on TNA. The Raven's Rules match and my personal favorite, the hangman's horror match. He invented both types of matches. And I've got to say, he really kicks ass during all his matches. He wrestled a great hangman's horror match with sabu a long time ago.



    In addition to that, he's actually been a writer for many of the wrestling promotions he's been to. And I must say, he's done a damn good job.



    One thing I want to quickly say is thank you Raven for not going to ECW. He would have committed career suicide there. As one of the ECW originals, I'm sure Vince tried to get him to join. If he went to WWECW, Vince would have kicked Raven's career down the toilet.



    Another thing I just find notable about Raven is not his wrestling ability. It's the fact that his IQ is get this, 143. Though a seemingly minor thing, it's just really nice to see a professional wrestler who actually has a brain (unlike those idiots Batista and Lashley). Thank you Raven for all you have done. May the WWE wisen up and start learning from some of the fine examples you have set.moreless
  • Future hardcore legend!!!

    9.0


    Raven is a great worker and performer, he has been in wrestling for 17 years, he helped the business in all this time and received much much much less.

    In ECW he developed his great character and was one of the main wrestlers of Philadelphia's federation; then he went in WCW and formed a Raven's Flock but his run has been a flop; in 2000 he came back in Extreme Championship Wrestling and then he went in WWE after ECW failed.

    There, Vince McMahon in my opinion destroyed the Raven's character transforming him in a pure jobber, disrespecting his career.

    And finally, on Jaunray 22nd 2003, he came to TNA attacking NWA Champion Jeff Jarrett and that was his resurrection which came to an end on June 19th 2005 when he won his first-ever NWA World Heavyweight Title. Now he's looking for revenge on "The King of the Mountain" and AMW who cost him the championship at the "Controversy in Canada" on September 15th 2005.

    As I said in the summary, he deserves to become an hardcore legend in this sport IMHO.
