* WrestlingMonster: He is probably the best to ever drop a DDT. The Evenflow/Raven Effect looked like it literally killed anyone who ever took it. Even the way he exited the ring was consistent with his character.

After brief runs in {{Wrestling/WCW}} and [[{{Wrestling/WWE}} WWF]] as '''Scotty the Body''' (proto-[[Wrestling/ShawnMichaels HBK]], with Missy Hyatt holding his leash), '''Scotty Flamingo''' (token 80's surfer) and '''Johnny Polo''' (proto-[[Wrestling/TripleH HHH]]), Levy rose to fame as Raven, a scion who who turned his back on the aristocracy to join Philly's wrestling underground. In spite of his wild-man makeover, Raven's silver tongue and love of literary references [[WickedCultured betrayed his privileged background]]. His promos were dark and nihilistic, and he was followed by a stable of misfits known as "Raven's Nest", which at different points included such wrestlers as the Pitbulls, the [[Wrestling/TheDudleyBoys Dudleys]], longtime lackey Wrestling/StevieRichards, and even [[Wrestling/MickFoley Cactus Jack]]. Raven is the closest thing ECW had to a WrestlingMonster: a brooding sociopath, with a penchant for manipulating the weak-willed into doing his bidding.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: When he injured Villano IV off a doubleteam [=powerbomb/neckbreaker=] combo, he immediately broke character and stayed sitting next to Villano until it was clear that the injury wasn't life-threatening. For the time being, the incident (starting with the powerbomb) can be seen [[https://youtu.be/eNTOyl5WzY8?t=3m55s here]].

* EnigmaticMinion: Played one of these to Vampiro during his brief run with The Deadpool.

* EnigmaticMinion: Played one of these to Vampiro during his brief run with The Deadpool. Why would a guy like Raven act as a minion for ''anyone''? We never found out, as this was shortly before he walked out of WCW.



* FacialMarkings: In his later years, wore eye make-up consisting of lines running underneath his eyes.

* MalevolentMaskedMan: In Serotonin. More so than intended, as it allowed Wrestling/AJStyles to cause trouble under a bird mask knowing whatever he did would be attributed to Raven.

* BreakupBreakout: Raven was already well-established when he created The Gathering (aka Raven's Nest iteration #387) in TNA, but he's been outshined by two of its members. One is Wrestling/MickieJames, who became one of the most popular and recognizable female wrestlers on the planet (although overall Raven is probably still the bigger star). The other is Wrestling/CMPunk, who probably outstrips everyone to ever be a part of any of Raven's stables in success (Raven included), being a five time world champion in the WWE and a superstar whose popularity was only matched by Wrestling/JohnCena, and surpassed by Wrestling/DanielBryan.
