“The neverending saga in … the overall story of the loner, the slacker, the tortured soul known as Raven, who craves acceptance yet destroys it once he achieves it.” – Paul Heyman, Prodigy Chat, 1997.

That’s ECW founder Paul Heyman’s succinct description of the richest element of the success of ECW at its incept. Raven, as personified & created by Scott Levy, is perhaps professional wrestling’s most complicated and well-drawn character ever.

The most unique aspect of the Raven character is that his story has transcended multiple promotions yet continues the same story begun in a summer camp years before when a girl came between two best friends and changed all their lives forever; how one must face their demons again & again to try & gain the upper hand yet lose that comeuppance in a neverending cycle of pain and retribution.
