The Greatest Hardcore Champ to come out of Jerzey. All right, he's the only one... But he's still cool for a depressed dude. All right, All right here's the things you came here for... quotes!

Raven's ECW quotes:

  • "I can't remember a time when I wasn't alone, even when my parent were around. The sound of their fury was harsh, but the sound of their silence was deafining. It's devastation that left me buried beneath a mountain of solitude. My lonliness and despair traped me in a storm of unimaginable emptiness. What about me? What about Raven? The other kids playing ball outside, and me with them was am illusion I'd allow myself, but the stark reality was even if my parents would of allowed me to leave my bedroom dwell, the other kids wouldn't of allowed me to join in anyway. They said I didn't follow their rules. Their stupid rules... Quote the Raven, nevermore."

  • "Stevie, we're going to find out, tonight, if you have the balls to fight me!" Raven

  • The Sinister Minister: Raven, confide in me son. Tell me your troubles, let it out. its all bottled up in there.
  • Raven: You know what my problem is? My problem is why does Tommy thinks he needs Francine to plot his strategy with him and Dusty? I mean I think Tommy doesn't want her to talk to me! Whose going to listen to my problems!
  • Paul E Heyman: AW! What the fuck are you doing! Get the Fuck out of here! Can't you tell that this guy is disturbed?
  • The Sinister Minister: That makes him a perfect disciple...
  • Heyman: Get the fuck outta here!! Damnit Man! Scotty what is wrong with you?! This guy is not even a real priest!
  • Raven: Does it matter Paulie? At least he's listening to me! What about you? You ever return my phone calls? Who listens to me? My parents don't listen to me. Nobody ever listened to me, Paulie!
  • Heyman: Put it down! This has to stop. This Really has to stop. I've heard about this now for months. 'I don't sin against anybody but myself. I have been sacrificed for Tommy Dreamers sins. I have been sacrificed for Francine's sins. Scotty, You. Have. GOT. TO. SNAP. OUT. OF. THIS!
  • Raven: Snap out of it?
  • Heyman: You have got to snap out of this!
  • Raven: If I snap out of it Paulie, Whose going snap? I'm sick to death of this Paulie. I will sin against myself, nevermore!
  • Heyman: You're going down the wrong path again. You're going down the wrong path this time you never going be able to come back! I can NOT fuckin' help YOU if you go down this...
  • Raven: Have you ever helped me before *he walks away*

  • Heyman "...cold, dark, unforgiving to an outcast, such as myself. A rebel in a consertive business. -sighs- I don't get it. Why did I ever bring back the Sandman? That drunk is going to drive me crazy. Dreamer's always bitching about teaming with you. The Impact players are always bitching about wanting more title shots. Everybody's critical. I've got to come up with something new every week....Damnit! I'm as miserable as you are!"
  • Raven: "What are you telling me for?"
  • Heyman"I don't know... Quote the Heyman, Nevermore?"

  • "The wrestling world as we once knew it is over. Gone are the days of normalcy. Gone are the days of conformity. I feel your pain. I am your oppotunity for salvation. Isn't it time you come with me? For I shall set you free."

  • "...And look at that...My stop sign! Is nothing sacred?"

  • "Fair is a luxury I can't aford..."

  • "Trust and hate, and love and fate, and I don't understand. Social grace, the human race, confuse me. These words I speak, bring forth a world of emotions. Emotions of dreams lost, dreams found, and dreams I'll never see."

  • "Justin Credible; the concussion I gave him, and the ever elusive World Heavyweight Title. The title I made, the title he has, the title I was sold out on by that filthy whore. What do you want me to say?"

  • "Pain and suffering.....Of a childhood lost...An empty swing....An empty promise....A broken dream...A broken home....It's strange....How laughter looks like crying.....With no sound.....And raindrops taste like tears....Without the pain.....Tommy Dreamer....You'll relive....The turmoil...And anguish...Of an uncertain youth...Quote the Raven...Nevermore"

  • [Dreamer calls Raven a pussy] "I think I stay with 'Raven' and thank you for the fine offer! and you think your going to coax me into a fight, Dreamer, you're insane. I've got a torn rotator cuff, I'm in no interset in fighting you, and frankly, you've never really beaten me anyway!"

  • "They say imitation, is the sincerest form of flattery. Well Justin Credible, you stole my look, you stole my girl, you stole my title. Two days ago, you called me on the telephone, and you quoted one of my heroes to me. ('Keep On Rocking in the Free World' by Neil Young) 'There's a warning sign on the road ahead. There's a lot of people saying, we'd be better off dead. I don't feel like Satan, but I am to them. So I try to forget it, anyway I can.' And right then and there I realized, Justin, that you could never be me, because when they call you Satan it bothered you; When they called me Satan, I enjoyed it. So it is written..."

  • "I realize one thing. That it's better to have a condemned soul, than no soul at all."

  • from Anarchy Rulz "For two and a half years Tommy Dreamer, we fought an epic battle of mythic proportions. We had a friendship based on love... and a hatred based on friendship. You scarred my face, you battered me unmercifully... and you took MY GIRL! But the one thing that you could never do, was beat me Tommy. You could never beat me and I always pinned you. Two and a half years Tommy, after I came to ECW . . . to exorcize your demons, it was time for you to graduate... so I gave you your victory. For two and a half years Tommy Dreamer, I stayed away from ECW. And with me gone, your life lost it's meaning, and your career lost it's purpose, and your relationship with Beulah lost it's foundation. You'd lost your focus, Tommy (laughs). You lost the girl. Keyser Soze said the greatest trick that the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that he didnt exist. Well Tommy, I exist and I'm going to be your own personal demon because this savior has already been crucified for your sins... Quote the Raven... nevermore."

  • "You see, scars are souvenirs you never loose, the past is never far. But what do you do? What do you do, when all your memories are razor blades? When everything you can possibly remember, hurts? What do you do? Quote the Raven, nevermore."

  • "When we fall, earth will die, sun will set, and moon will shine, and the only image will be the Raven's shadow in your eyes. So it is written, so it shall come to pass. Quote The Raven... Nevermore"

  • "The World is full of Kings and Queens, who will blind your eyes, and steal your dreams. Kurt Cobain did not make it and he left an entire generation of tortured souls behind. Tommy Dreamer, take heed. Quote the Raven Nevermore"

  • "Life of rage, blood stained cage, suicide is an escape from the only fate... Quote The Raven... Nevermore"

  • "They weren't foreign objects. They were all domestic objects purchased locally"

  • "You should understand my pain, but you don't."

  • "Come on, come a little closer. Don't be scared."

  • "Isn't the question you ask, the same question I always heard while growing up? Don't you want to fit in with them? If it is, the answer is no... I refuse to be a shallow sellout like those others. I am beyond that. Quote The Raven... Nevermore"

  • "Crucified for the sins of my humanity ... Crucified for the sins of my compassion ... Crucified for the sins of my past ... By the flesh of my flesh, and the blood of my blood, You will crucify the Raven, NEVERMORE!"

  • Raven: "A father gives up a lifetime of chasing women, fast cars, of unwarranted hedonism in order to bring a child into this world. A mother spends 9 months with a baby in her womb, giving up cigarettes and alcohol and all her attention goes into bringing a child onto this earth. Then for 18 years, 18 LONG YEARS, they spend catering to this child's every whim, giving it every single thing it wants. Whether it be nursing, schooling, educational help, it doesn't matter. Suffering at every turn and gladly to make sure that this child is raised properly and correctly. Yet the turn to ME for their salvation, for absolution, and for benediction? You see ... the tortuous parenting that you gave them, the childlike lessons you tried to instill meant nothing! Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin ... even Kurt Cobain couldn't deliver these children from the torment...the pain...the anguish, and the suffering that they've spent an entire lifetime coming to grips with. You see, the mind that controls the children is the mind that holds the future. And I, AM, salvation!"
  • Sandman's Kid: "Quote the Raven nevermore."
  • Raven: (cackles) "You see I control the children...partly Sandman's."

    Raven's WCW quotes:

  • "I always say, if chaos is inevitable, why keep order? But WCW wants everyone to, 'Respect Their Authority,' *phrase in quotes said in a Eric Cartman voice*, so they're gonna put me and two boneheads in a triangle match at Uncensored. Now, I was always told by the old-timers that you had to talk good about your opponent so it'll up the buyrate. So, Bam Bam Bigelow, you have nice tattoos. And Hak, you don't sweat much for a fat guy. So, I've got . . . one . . . two . . . I got SIX words for ya . . . What About Me! What About Raven! Quote the Raven, nevermore!

  • "Unfortunantly for me, I did not realize that all of my mothers reality checks were bouncing. My mother was never there for me, WHAT ABOUT ME!? WHAT ABOUT RAVEN!?!"

  • Raven: Gene, if you knew about my childhood, the pain that I've suffered, the pain that I've gone through, the way my parents treated me --
  • Mean Gene: You want me to get a couch out here, you can lay down and tell me everything?
  • Raven: Gene, you can get a couch, you can get whatever you'd like. It doesn't really matter. It doesn't change the past and it doesn't change the way I feel. Now Hall and Giant, they can step forth whenever they'd like. They obviously don't defend the belts very often. But when they do, we'll be there, and we'll be ready and we will take them.
  • Mean Gene: Tell you what, for 250 bucks an hour, I'll talk to you as long as you wanna talk.
  • Raven: That's enough Gene. Quote the Raven, nevermore . . .

  • "....And Benoit, I don't FEAR your pain.... I'll FEAST upon it!"

  • Raven: Whatever. That may have been a miscalculation on our part, but I never liked Benoit and I definitely don't like Stinko Malenko, to borrow Jericho's toy to turn a phrase. Ummm, it seems to me and Benoit's last feud ended in Panama City and apparently our current feud has restarted there, and I just don't like them' so I'd figured I'd rather give the belts to Kidman and Mysterio, cuz I know we can whip them.

  • Mean Gene: Well now, there was a big split, everybody knows about it. Raven and Saturn were on opposite ends of the stick, so to speak.
  • Raven: Are you saying we broke up?
  • Mean Gene: You broke up.
  • Saturn: What do you mean we broke up? I didn't even know we were dating!

  • Raven: Absolutely -- Absolutely. Gene, I have to put the fear -- the fear of Raven and the fear of Kanyon in my opponents. They have to understand that when they step in the ring with us, it won't just be a wrestling match, a wrestling contest. It'll be a battle for their life.

  • "You want in? You want to join the flock? You want to follow me? Look what you follow now. James Vandenberg: a human oddity. Does he make you dress in this clown costume? Is that a mask of hate or a mask of shape? Is their any reason why I would want you? Is there something about you that you aren't showing? If you want to join the flock, you have to be yourself. You have to be true to who you are. You have to be unafraid to be different, to be laughed at, to be scorned. That's all it takes to follow me. Oh by the way, and you've got to beat Diamond Dallas Page as well. Quote the Raven, nevermore."

  • "If you want to join the flock, you have to be yourself. You have to be true to who you are. You have to be unafraid to be different, to be laughed at, to be scorned. That's all it takes to follow me. Quote the Raven Nevermore."

  • "What about me? What about Raven? Kris Christopherson once said that freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose..."

  • "Last night, Saturn defeated Chris Benoit. In the preceding weeks, we've beaten on him, we've stretched him, and we've humiliated him. Any normal person would've known when enough's enough. But Chris Benoit is a masacist. He has serious physchological damage. And if he insists on recieving punishment every week, then I inisist that we inflict it. Quote the Raven... nevermore."

  • Kanyon: Ahhh, there you are, Mr. Martyr, Mr. Self-Pity. How goes the death wish, Raven? How goes it? Lets see what we got; last week the Giant chokeslamed you through a table. What do you got planned for todays hurt du jour? What about you? What about. . .
  • Raven: Leave me alone, Kanyon.
  • Kanyon: Leave you alone? What is this a self-pity party? Am I not invited? Am I not invited to your self-pity party? What are you gonna do tonight, jump off a building? Come on Raven...

  • Mean Gene: You want to hurt somebody?
  • Raven: Yes, I want to hurt someone.

  • "I'm a natural loner, but surrounded by people at the same time."

  • "They said things would be different when I got older, but they lied. In high school, I was despised, I was hated, and I was attacked for being different. It's no different now. I'm still hated, I'm still despised, and I'm still being attacked on a regular basis, whether it's Kanyon, or Saturn, or any another representative of society's norm. Well, what about me!! What about Raven!!"

  • "See, no one respects the flame quite like the fool who's badly burned and the Flock realizes how you betrayed them. How you let them down. How you let me down. What about me? What about Raven?"

  • "They say I'm cold. They say I'm cruel. They say I'm calculating. But they don't tell you about the philanthropy. They don't tell you about the humanity. I take a guy like Kidman, a runaway, and I give him shelter. I take a guy like Riggs, who's lost the use of one eye, and I make him feel like he can function in society again. I take a seven foot plus freak like Reese, and I make him stop feeling like an outcast. I should be lauded for these things but instead I'm scorned with derision. I should be named a humanitarian, but I'm not. So what about me? What about Raven? You be the judge. Quote the Raven... Nevermore."

  • "The past is never far. You can try to repress it, you can try to hold it back, you can try to deny it, but it will still continue to grow... stronger and stronger."

  • "For those of you who came in late, I had an abusive childhood."

  • "...I'm going to crush both of you like Jerry Falwell at one of Saturn's bondage balls. Quote the Raven, nevermore..."

  • "Every one of you craves life's pleasures, yet you don't indulge. You want to drink from ecstacy's cup, yet you won't imbibe. You want to walk the edge, like Raven, but you're afraid to fall, so you back away, slowly, hoping no one notices your frailties, your cowardice. You wish you weren't so weak, and you hurt. Well what do you know about pain!? Try walking in my shoes. Experience my sorrow, a childhood without hope, a life without joy. But hey, at least you'll be alive. They say the Raven is the Flock's guide down alienation's barren path. But really, I walk alone. Quote the Raven, nevermore... " WCW Saturday Night - August 15, 1998

    Raven's WWF quotes:

  • "What about me, What about Raven?"

    "I like that! If you're lying to me, at least be honest about it!" -- Raven, May 1999

  • Jonathan Coachman: "…why in the world would you accept a challenge from The Big Show for the Hardcore title tonight?"
  • Raven: "Why would I accept his challenge? Why would Jack climb the beanstalk? Why would David fight Goliath? Why would Arnold challenge The Gooch? I’ll tell you why; because if I defeat The Big Show and his gargantuan cranium tonight, I will be the greatest Hardcore Champion of all time!"
  • Jonathan Coachman: "Isn’t it true that Mr. McMahon forced you into this match?"
  • Raven: "(Reluctant pause) …Yes!"

    "The reason I've aligned myself with Tazz is because he understands my suffering. He understands my pain, something a King wouldn't know anything about. That's quite amusing King, you're a regular Henny Youngman. You know sometimes in life we make our own choices, and sometimes a choice is made for us, and sometimes there is no choice. You see, King, it's typical of you and your ilk, you and your sycophantic revellers with their fancy clothes and their middle class suburbia, with their two car garage, white picket fences, 2.3 kids, a dog, their hot pretzels and Diet Coke to make fun of people like Tazz and myself from the lower class, make fun of people like us who live in squalor and poverty. What about me!? What about Raven!? You dont know what it's like to watch your parents beg for change. You dont know what its like to live in a box. I never got a hotdog. What about me!? What about Raven!?"

  • Raven "Tonight, we expose a myth - a fantasy, a fabrication if you will. Tonight we face three individuals who are neither dynamic, revolutionary, nor particularly groundbreaking. ie, anything but radical. Tonight, those three face their fate, destiny and pain."
  • Grandmaster Sexay "Yo yo yo, that's what the Grand Master is talkin' about, Michael Coleslaw. See tonight, we facin' Eddie, Perry and Dean - three men that think they're mean, two ain't too keen, and one look like a cross-eyed Mr. Clean. You see, and speakin' of clean, tonight we're gonna clean some clocks, get ready to rocks, eat some bagels and lox...and get funky like a pair o' dirty ol' socks. Booya!"
  • Steve Blackman "I don't know what the hell these guys are talking about - I don't even eat bagels."

  • Raven: You know for years I thought my family was screwed up. I got to thank my parents for not being related.
  • Molly Holly: Hey, Enough talk, is your women coming or not?
  • Raven: "She's comin, and she's not my women. I don't have a women.... Yet!"
    Cuz he wants HER! Why does no one believe me?? *grumbles*

  • "We're not done with our little dance. You keep acting all overjoyed at the fact that you're Rob Van Dam, but I'm Raven, the Greatest Hardcore Warrior to ever walk the WCW - ECW rings and I took to heart what Stone Cold said and when he's done whipping Chris Jericho I know he's going to be in a damn good mood and I'm going to ask him for a Hardcore Title match against you on Monday night." Raven talking to RVD

    "No one fears the flame, like he who's been badly burned; and I am the bird of prey, who'll feast upon your rotting carcass!" -- Raven, to Hardcore Holly, Smackdown

  • Raven: "Shhhhhh - No, fate - fate has brought you to me, and destiny - destiny will expose your hypocritical convictions, and pain - pain will be your penance. Fate, destiny and pain."
  • Val Venis (during RTC days) "If you're not with us, Raven, you're against us, and that is not a place you want to be."
  • Raven: "The only place that I don't wanna be is trapped inside your belief systems!"

  • Raven: As the shadows of darknes fall upon the paths of despair they leave a trail of nothingness in their way Kurt.
  • Kurt: What the hell are you talking about?
  • Raven: I'm challenging you to a match Kurt.
  • Kurt: Oh, your challenging me?
  • Raven: Oh yeah.
  • Kurt: I'll take you on in any match you want buddy!
  • Raven: Fine, ECW rulez then.
  • Kurt: Fine, by the way, the ECW doesn't rule, the WWF rulez pal, how d'you like that?

  • “Kurt Angle, that flag waving freak tried to break my ankle!” an angry Raven to an evil Austin..who seconds after Raven showed his pain... So to speak... Austin then tried to break it even more... Jerk.

    "I've lost to Perry Saturn, that bald-headed, mop-loving psycho. I've reached a new low." - Raven, RAW 2001.

    Coach: "Hulkamania lives, big time!"
    Raven: "I am disgusted and dismayed at this horrific turn of events! I was a Triple H supporter and I was hoping Triple H would have a long and prosperous title reign. I'm absolutely mortified by this! Ugh."

    Raven: "If you befriend a scorpion, and the scorpion bites you, you don't just say 'Hey, why did you bite me?', 'cause it's a SCORPION, Coach!"

    Raven calls Stevie 'Wacko Stevie' again as he walks out into the ring
    Stevie: "Ladies and gentlemen, allow me some time to air a grievance. There is a man, who is --- there is a man, who has soiled the reputation of a solid citizen - a pillar of the community, Steven Richards! Raven, two weeks ago, you insinuated that I am mentally unsound by calling me Wacko Stevie Richards."

    Raven: "He is out of his mind."

    Stevie: "Well, you might not realize this, but my mind, and my body, are in the best shape of their respective careers. You want to sit behind that desk and pontificate about the mental stability of others? Then why don't you step through these ropes and I'll show you that everything I do is calculated. I'll prove to you - I'm not a Wacko! I'm not a Wacko, who you calling a Wacko?"

  • Austin: "Who whipped your ass...last week?"
  • Raven: "Saturn."
  • Austin: "Hehehe - okay. Here's a guy...who carries around a mop. It's - he carries a mop. What? As far as I'm concerned, you shoulda mopped the damn ring with that lunatic. He's got a sexual relationship with a stick, with a damn...mop on the end of it, and he whipped your ass? Am I correct? If I'm lying, you tell me I'm lying."
  • Raven: "You're - you're correct."
  • Austin: "I'm what?"
  • Raven: "You're correct."
  • Austin: "That's right, I am correct. WHAT ABOUT ME? WHAT ABOUT RAVEN? QUOTE THE RAVEN NEVERMORE. You want me to give ya a little speech? Do you want me too? You suck! Quote Stone Cold nevermore. You make me sick."

  • "Yeah, King, listen, don't even greet me because you know I'm sick of coming out here every week, you and your lecherous ways, you never talk about wrestling, you never talk about what's going in the ring, do you even know anything about wrestling any longer? Obviously, you don't know anything about women, either, because your wife wouldn't have left you then. Oh, whatever, King. I'm out here to show you how to commentate correctly!"

  • "Will you be able to discuss this, King? I mean, there are no puppies involved in the match."

  • "You know what, King? I've sat there and listened to you talk about nothing but puppies - puppies - and more puppies - week in and week-- you know, obviously you don't know a thing about wrestling anymore. You used to be a legend, but now, you're just a has-been, King. You know what? If you're not too afraid of being embarrassed, King, I'll go to the back - I'll put on my gear - and if you're in the ring when I come back, I will humble you, and I will humiliate you, courtesy of what has come to be known as The Raven Effect."
  • " know, lemme borrow a little phrase from Booker T, tell me you did not just challenge me to a match in my hometown!"
  • "Oh yeah, I did, King!"
  • "Well you know, nothin' - first of all let me say, the last time I saw something that looked like you, Raven, I flushed it. So you go to the back, you get your gear on, and The King will be waitin' for you in the ring when you get back, okay?"

  • "It wasn't Debra's family that had the emergency - it was Stone Cold Steve Austin's - in fact, it was Austin himself. Austin can conceal his pain no longer, because from my vantage point, no matter how cleverly he may sneak upon a mirror, his reflection is always right there to stare back at him. And do you know what he sees? He sees a troubled, tortured, tormented soul. I wish I could help him, Coach. But this is his destiny...and I feel his pain. Quote the Raven... nevermore."

  • "Fate is a property that meets crossroads, and I will not be held accountable for my actions. Quote the Raven nevermore."
  • D'Lo: "What the heck did he just say?"

  • "Listen, what leverage Terri? I only appear on one hour of WWE programming a week. My level of exposure isn't half of what it needs to be! And besides, how attractive of a free agent would I really make? And even so, do you really think they'll allow me on SmackDown!? They'd find some way to get me off of there! 'cause every time people see me, they say I'm a freak. They say I'm a degenerate. They say that I'm depraved. Well, labeling people is the product of narrow minded individuals. You see, I'm not depraved, [whisper] they are! I'm gonna say here on Heat with you, because if I can't be on RAW, I'm gonna take joy in turning Heat into my own personal playground."

  • Fink "Raven, Raven, wait up man. Saw you come in, I wanted to buzz you on a couple things."
  • Raven "About what?"
  • Fink "Well Raven, isn't life funny sometimes? Look at it this way: couple of months ago, you had a match on RAW, you lost it, and you were banned from every appearing on the program. Last week, I had a match with that sailor-loving floozy Lillian Garcia, and I lost it, so I'm not longer on RAW. It's kinda like, Raven, we're two peas in a pod."
  • Raven "We are, Howard."
  • Fink "But, the bottom line for me is, I'm the back on Heat, kinda like in a exclusive capacity. Now, I'm a little down right now, but I'm the Fink, and Raven, I will bounce back to the top in no time-"
  • Raven "Howard, is there a point to all of this?"
  • Fink "That match you had last week with D'Lo Brown was very tough, but -"
  • Raven "SHUT UP! Howard, the first rule of Heat is that it's my own Personal Playground. So, spare me your thesis on my match against D'Lo Brown. It's just one game, Howard. In my playground, there games are played all the time. It's just one little piece of the puzzle. As all the players move across the board, believing themselves Kings, Queens, Bishops, Rooks - they remind blissfully unaware that they're all pawns, being orchestrated by me. So Howard, whether it's D'Lo Brown last week, whether is' Spike Dudley tonight, whether it's you Howard, you're all fragments of my bigger masterpiece...Quote the Raven, Nevermore."

  • Fink "...everything happened at once when I saw Jamal and Rosie come down that aisle. And Raven, you should've seen the expression on Lillian's face, it was absolutely priceless. But Raven, it wasn't a shove, it was more a push off something so I could get away. But truth be told Raven, I have a bad knee."
  • Johnny Stamboli walks over to rid Raven of his obvious boredom "Hey Raven, how ya doing? You and me, we need to have a little sit down. *looks at Fink* Who's he?"
  • Raven "He's harmless."
  • Stamboli "Remember that little business arrangement, we made a few weeks back."
  • Raven "Yea."
  • Stamboli "You hired me to take out your little D'Lo problem."
  • Raven "Yea."
  • Stamboli "And I did. Very well, I might add."
  • Raven "Yea."
  • Stamboli "Where's my money; I'm here to collect."
  • Raven "You want me to pay you?"
  • Stamboli "Yea."
  • Raven "I don't think so!"
  • Stamboli "You don't think so?"
  • Raven "Johnny, I repaid you. I paid you an opportunity. You see, I gave you an opportunity to come on to my playground and display ruthless aggression for Eric Bischoff by beating D'Lo Brown. You know, I think you should be paying me."
  • Stamboli "Me paying you? I don't think so."
  • Raven " *puts arm on Johnny's shoulder* You know what, I like you Johnny. So I tell you what - I'm gonna give you another opportunity to display ruthless aggression. In the ring tonight, except your opponent is gonna be me!"
  • Stamboli " *pushes shoulder off* Me and you? *to Fink* Do you believe this guy? *back to Raven* Consider it done. I'll tell you what, though, you're going to me today, or - you're gonna pay me today. Capich?"

  • Raven: "Terri, the time is finally at hand. Tonight, I close a chapter on my adversary D'Lo Brown and yet I open another one in my vindication. For two years, I've been scorned and I've been scoffed at by people, people like you, Terri. And yet quietly, I've biding my time. I've bided my time until the pieces came together. And now, the picture is clear. The time for my voice to be heard is now - I will be silent no longer! I will open some eyes that have been blinded to me. It is time to begin my master piece, and I will make people see - quote the Raven, nevermore!"

  • Coach "Now Raven, last week - last week, you made a very cryptic mention of your pieces coming together and it was time for your masterpiece to begin. Care to explain?"
  • Raven "For two years, I've languished in this company and watched opportunities that a man of my skill and intellect deserve be given to others - other superstars - because they were more of a 'friendly image.' I've been treated like an outcast. I've been treated an unwanted child. I've been treated like a depraved embarrassment! For two years, I resisted the temptation to lash out in a rage. I've rested the temptation to quit the WWE entirely. I didn't Coach, I didn't, because I have a statement to make. A statement that I will reveal in upcoming weeks. A statement that will expose the hypocrisy that shows - A STATEMENT that shows the WWE and society itself - society has been seduced by depravity! And you people have responded with all the chastity of a three dollar tramp! I see the way you people look at me - you look down your noses at me because I'm different, I dress different. Well it's time I show you people that I'm not depraved - it's you people --- This interview's over, Coach."

  • Finkle: "Raven! Raven ... we have talked about many things over these past weeks. But what I witnessed last week, the breaking of the fingers of your opponent, really got to me. Why?"
  • Raven: "Howard, I broke his fingers because there must be CONSEQUENCES for one's choices. I'm trying to bring salvation to him, to you Howard, to everyone else out there. Breaking his fingers hurt me A HELL OF A LOT MORE THAN IT DID HIM! You see, society is made up of people who act one way in public and another way in private. They do not have the courage to stand up for their own filthy convictions. Therefore, I will be brave for them, Howard; that is why I'm creating a masterpiece. So that people can stand back and look at ten - twenty - a thousand years and see what a brilliant, courageous savior that I am! I will be granted immortality! And since I have nothing but time on my hands Howard, that is why I have held off starting my masterpiece. I thought I would give you people a chance to change. But obviously you either can't, or you won't.And therefore, I will do a demonstration. Each week my masterpiece will consist of demonstrations, using one of the seven deadly sins. Whether it be wrath, or sloth, or greed or pride. And one poor, unfortunate individual will be sacrificed, Howard; Because the needs of the many far outweigh the needs of the few. And these taken together as a whole, they will be my video masterpiece. Because they will show the world what society is, and show my courage in bringing it to them. Quote the Raven, nevermore."

  • Steven Richards: "Hey, Raven, c'mon, you and I go way back, this masterpiece of yours - will you please tell me? Tell me, at least tell me."
  • Raven puts an arm around Steven's shoulder. "Look - no. Stevie, you can find out just along with everyone else, next week, just what my masterpiece is. Besides, if I were you, I'd be a little more concerned with your match with D'Lo Brown."
  • Raven leaves, Steven sits down and turns to an empty chair "and they say I'm whacko...."

    Raven on talking about the Hardcore title "I try to be as idealistic and creative as possible when I'm getting into a Hardcore match. See, a lot of people look at a wall and see a wall. I look at a wall and see something that someone can be thrown through. A lot of people ask me how I can possibly come up with something new and entertaining each time I go out there, and honestly, it's the fans. If the fans like what they saw last time, it really motivates me to find something new that they might like even more."

    "The problem with drugs, is that you are either one of two kinds. You can either take them or you can't, and you won't know until you take them, so there's a big risk. I always knew that I would be able to quit but I think that's very exceptional, I've never found anyone else who can go 'I'm done and I quit' and that was it. I don't recommend it to anyone but I don't discourage it either. I'm not going to say don't do it because I don't want to be a hypocrite. I think you need to make your own decisions but unfortunately you also have to live with them and it's not always easy."

    Raven's NWA-TNA quotes:

  • "Once upon a time, I was a sad, bitter, lonely child. There was a void in my life, I could not fill. It was a tortured existence; teased by the other children, raised by cold, apathetic parents who only wanted one child -- my sister -- I was the accident that they never wanted and they were not shy about reminding me of that fact! Then, I met a woman. A beautiful, loving woman -- Lori and her son. They became my family. This was the happiest time of my life. All this joy made everything that I went through worthwhile. It was the happiest time of my life. We were a loving happy family, until Sandman took his wife and kid back! I will never forgive you for that, even if it takes an eternity! I want you to know hurt. I want you to know pain. I want you to know humiliation. I want you to wake up in the morning, praying for divine intervention to end your miserable life. My miserable life, however, it got better. I began looking forward to the pain. I began to enjoy it. And now, Sandman, I walk through horror with red kisses from murderous gods blistering my priestly flesh. Walk with me, Sandman, for I am Raven. Walk with me, Sandman, through paths of hatred. Walk with me, through paths of cruelty. Walk with me through Raven's clockwork orange house of fun. Quote the Raven, Nevermore."

  • Goldylocks: "Raven!"
  • Raven: "What?"
  • Goldylocks: "Guess what goes around, comes around, huh? Bet in your wildest dreams you'd never thought you'd be wrestling Sandman tonight?"
  • Raven: "You know -- what is this about? You know, Sandman and I go back a long way. Apparently, Sandman feels that he -- that I deserve some sort of revenge for what he did to me. I mean, granted, his wife and him were -- they were separated when I took his wife from him. And it's not my fault that his kid left him -- that his son, Tyler Fullington, left him for me 'cause he thought that I would make a better parent than his drunken father. I mean, the fact that no matter where I go, no matter what promotion I wrestle in, he shows up and causes havoc. This is bullshit! This is a bunch of crap, man! What is this now!? What is this!?"
  • [Raven sees AJ Styles arriving to the building] Goldylocks: "I don't know what's going on here."
  • Raven: "Apparently, AJ Styles can't get out of a car."

  • "Hey Security, remove that debris from my sight! A.J. Styles, you have property that belongs to me. Possession is 9/10ths of the law and you possess the NWA World Heavyweight Title. You need to bring that to me right now! I mean, you do realize that you are a mere gardener in the yard of life, while I - I walk a different road. A road of horror, a narrow road with no turns that only the bravest of men would dare travel. Pain, pain is a bridge on that road carrying the traveler over dark waters of deceit and scorn. Debt, a debt incurred in this road is a lifelong bond; a hunger to be satiated is a debt of blood and it requires sacrifice. Your sacrifice, A.J. Styles! So, A.J. Styles, unless you are a pussy of the greatest magnitude, you will attempt to come down here and keep me from regaining my possession and granting you an eternity of youthful oblivion. A.J. Styles, you claim to have beaten everyone, but you haven't beaten anyone until you've taken a walk through Raven's Clockwork Orange House of Fun, you arrogant little pussy! Quote the Raven, nevermore!"

  • "This ... is a revolution of the damned. At my side, are Julio and Alexis, my apostles. Whose strengths lie in the fact that they worship at the altar of my brilliance and recognize me as the deity that I am. Jeff Jarrett, S.E.X. and myself are sick and tired of your efforts to turn TNA into a circa-1980's Southern 'wrasslin' promotion of your youth: where good guys wore white hats and bad guys had curly mustaches and took candy from little babies.""Jeff, when I became a man, I threw away all my childhood possessions and I find it offensive that you refuse to do the same! So Jeff, the first step in dismantling your power is taking the World Heavyweight Title away that lies around your waist. Not so coincidentaklly, my destiny since childhood has been to win the NWA World Heavyweight Title. So it seems to me, Jeff, that for you, fate can be a cruel mistress. One other thing, Jeff, about your tenuous grasp on your own sanity -- I mean, each week, it seems you take one step closer to ending up in a rubber room. Well, take it from me, Jeff, someone who's been held against their will by men in white labcoats, its ... not an altogether pleasant experience. Speaking of unpleasant experiences, D'Lo Brown, tonight you will become a victim of what has come to be known as The Raven Effect. Welcome to Raven's Clockwork Orange House of Fun, Quote the Raven. nevermore!!"

    "Look at my face, Jim Mitchell! You and your church have left me beaten, battered and bloody. You shaved my head and humiliated me. Last week, you tried to hang me. You're looking at a man with nothing left to lose. Jim Mitchell, I will make you suffer internally and eternally. But I won't come for you first. I want you to bear witness as I take out Vampiro, The New Church and Shane Douglas. One by one, I will eliminate them until only you and I are left standing. Dream blood, Jim Mitchell, dream blood, because I promise you a lifetime of sleepless nights. When everything is quiet and you're alone in bed, you'll hear your heart beating so rapidly you'll think you're gonna choke as it beats out the words, 'Raven ... Raven ... Raven.' Dream blood, Jim Mitchell, dream blood, I will have my retribution. Quote the Raven, nevermore!"

  • Raven: "You would think that I would be frustrated ... you would think that I would be annoyed that Jeff Jarrett continues to put people in my path in order to stop my quest for the NWA World Heavyweight title. But see, I kinda enjoy it. I enjoyed snapping Ryan Wilson's arm like a twig. I'm gonna enjoy hurting Abyss, Northcutt and Legend tonight. The Gathering -- together again, one time only."
  • CM Punk: "We're not gonna let you down, boss."
  • Julio: "No way, boss."
  • CM Punk: "We'll change your mind. This isn't going to be one time only. But we've got your back tonight!"
  • Raven: "One time only. Quote the Raven, nevermore."

    "You outmaneuvered me. I sat home for five weeks, alone, with my own pain, misery, and self-loathing... As I laid around the house — I thought “what had become of me?” And one day, I looked in a dusty drawer — that I hadn’t looked at in years. And I pulled out my leather jacket, my jean shorts, and my flannel — And I saw the Raven that I used to be. A Raven that was barbaric. A Raven that was ruthless. A Raven that didn’t care about anybody or anything — including himself. I forgot about this Raven. I started caring about people. Jim Mitchell — I thank you, because you made me remember—that you should never forget what brought you to the dance! Jim Mitchell — I will take your bloody intestines and shove them down your throat with a rusty fork while you’re being sodomized by your own sidekicks — Julio and Punk. And then it will be Julio’s turn, and then it’ll be Punk’s... AND then Jeff Jarrett—I’m coming for the title. And, incase I forgot, next week — just so it’s not a three-on-Raven, I’m gonna bring a partner. But I thought to myself — 'Who can I get, who can I bring that has even less regard for life and limb than I do?' So, I thought I’d bring the suicidal, homicidal, genocidal, death-defying SABU! Jim Mitchell — I can smell the fear in you. I think you hear me knocking, I think I’m coming in — quote the Raven, nevermore." -- Raven - 2/19/04

    Raven: "Hangman’s Horror I: Raven-Vampiro. It was a bloody affair and it was the last that we’ve ever seen of him. Hangman’s Horror II, Sabu, what do you think your chances are? You know, I remember when your uncle was training me. And I used to think to myself, ‘what a sad, pathetic, old man he was.’ I mean I used to slap him around and watch him cry like a little girl. You know, I’m embarrassed to say I was trained by him ‘cause the man’s pathetic just like you. But there’s two reasons that I broke that oath I made to him, because there’s two things that I wanted to prove to the world that I’ve always known. One: that I’m better than you. And Two: that the suicidal, homicidal, genocidal, death- defying Sabu is no more than clever P.R."
    Douglas: "Now wait a second, wait a second. You’re telling me that Sabu is nothing more than a P.R. stunt?"
    Raven: "It was a Public Relations coup created by Paul Heyman to convince the world that what they were seeing was something unprecedented. You wanna see something unprecedented, stick around next week, cause next week I'll end Sabu’s career prematurely. The first time I beat him. The second time I retire him. Hangman’s Horror II. Welcome to the terrordome. Quote the Raven, nevermore."

    "I'm still breathing, Abyss! I'm still breathing! They say nothing escapes from a black hole ... I just did! Next week, you and me, Abyss. You've already felt it once and I promise you, you will feel it again! You will feel what has come to be known as The Raven Effect. I got two words for you: internal hemorraging. I think you hear me knockin' ... I think I'm coming in. Quote the Raven, nevermore."

    Raven to Jarrett: "I think you hear me knocking. I think I'm coming in."

    "House of Orange...Clockwork Orange House of Fun match. I'm so excited I can't even say it correctly." -- Raven.

    "Jim Mitchell — I will take your bloody intestines and shove them down your throat with a rusty fork while you’re being sodomized by your own sidekicks — Julio and Punk. And then it will be Julio’s turn, and then it’ll be Punk’s... AND then Jeff Jarrett—I’m coming for the title." -- Raven
