After years of portraying various pompous characters, Scott Levy found gold when he created the persona of Raven. Raven was a dark brooding character that was very much a reflection of society around him. Quickly, he became one of the centerpiece’s of Paul Heyman’s ECW and was delivering brilliant matches and compelling promos. As Raven, he would capture the ECW Championship twice and headlined the first ECW Pay Per View.
As great a character as it was (though it would get muddled by WCW and ignored by WWE) it always felt like it could have been much more had the big two used him properly. In WCW he did have a mid card spot, but was leading around curtain jerking talent. In the WWE, he was only used in the Hardcore division and was not really featured anywhere else. Considering what they had to work with, it will always be a question as to why he was never featured more prominently on the National stage.
With a recent lawsuit against the WWE, an induction seems remote, but hopefully a mind as brilliant as Scott Levy will continue to give back to wrestling in various capacities.
