ECW Original Blames Heat With Vince McMahon For Lack Of WWE Push

Raven failed to garner the same momentum during his second run with WWE in the early 2000s.

The two-time ECW World Heavyweight Champion believes his lacklustre run is due to a unique set of circumstances

"I had a brawl with [Vince] McMahon in WWE. "It's a long story," Raven explained to Soundsphere.
