Although politics in WWE are still a problem, things were way worse back in the 2000s. Not everyone is built to handle and persevere through it all to get a chance to hold up a world title. A former WWE Superstar recently admitted to burning bridges with WWE back in the early 2000s.

Raven was in WWE for barely two and a half years, spending most of that time in the company’s hardcore division. The highlight of his WWE career came at WrestleMania 17, when he faced both Kane and The Big Show for the Hardcore Title.

Raven recently appeared at a signing which was livestreamed for K&S Wrestlefest. Raven revealed during the signing that he had greater ambitions while working for Vince McMahon, but that he shot himself in the foot

“I would’ve liked to have been world champion in New York [WWE]. But you know, that’s a hell of a lot of politics. A lot of the heat’s my fault though because I had to be the smartest guy in the room. Even if I wasn’t, I had to act like I was so I burned my own bridges. I knew it back then but couldn’t help it.”

Following his departure from WWE, Raven later spent time wrestling in TNA until late 2010 where he fought his last TNA match against AJ Styles. Raven has since made sporadic appearances throughout IMPACT. He was recently inducted into the IMPACT Wrestling Hall of Fame by his old rival Tommy Dreamer in October 2022.
