Raven's Nest was a ProfessionalWrestling PowerStable in Wrestling/{{ECW}} from 1995 to 1997. Wrestling/{{Raven}} put together the group for the purpose of destroying his [[{{Kayfabe}} longtime nemesis]] Wrestling/TommyDreamer, which stemmed, in the storyline, from when they were kids and Dreamer had been mean to Wrestling/{{Beulah McGillicutty}} when she was the fat girl at summer camp. It was the biggest group in ECW ''ever'' (see LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters below). There would often be ten or more people in the group at a time.

Later, Raven created other incarnations of the group in Wrestling/{{WCW}} such as The Flock and The Dead Pool (although Raven quit WCW and went back to ECW a month after the latter group's inception, which continued together without him as The Dark Carnival), and in [[Wrestling/ImpactWrestling TNA]] such as The Gathering and Serotonin.
