Quotes

Raven: They said 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 attacked on a regular basis. Whether it is Kanyon or Saturn or any other representative of society's norm.

Raven: What about me? What about Raven?

23 August 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I am sick of some of the stupid kids on here that say 'nWo was a RIPOFF of The DX'... If you were to make a valid point, make sure you look at the facts.

nWo was created in 1996... while DX was created in 1998 (I think), the matter of the fact is... nWo was atleast a year before the DX was made.

And for people that saw RAW is better, look at the crap the WWE Shovels at us now. I rather watch Nitro.

I bet all the people who said 'Watch RAW, Its the greatest Wrestling Show' dont even watch the show anymore. And dont blame it on the WCW part of the roster, cause its the WWE Writers, including Vince Mcmahon, who writes this stuff.

So, give WCW a break... It was run by AOL Time Warner, a huge conglomorate, while WWE was run by one man.

The WCW was great, as so was WWE. WCW was just the first one to have bad programming, but it wasn't as bad as the WWE crap today.
