Evan then appeared as a wrestler for the XPW, the AWA, and the IWA. Currently, he is the only professional wrestler to simultaneously hold both the AWA and IWA Heavyweight Wrestling Belts. Evan was trained for the squared circle by Dwayne Bruce better known by his in-ring name of Sgt. Buddy Lee Parker at the “WCW Power Plant” in Atlanta, Georgia & he made his debut in WCW in 1999 later winning the WCW Cruiserweight title. After wrestling solo for a few months he joined the so-called boy band group “3 Count” with ‘Sugar’ Shane Helms (Gregory Shane Helms) & Shannon Moore and few a very short time they added UFC fighter Tank Abbott for silly routines. The stable of “3 Count” was formed by Jimmy ‘Mouth of the South’ Hart to poke fun at the current crop of boy bands in the music industry at that time. They would put 3 circles in the ring & dance on them while singing songs before their matches. On 18 February 2000 Moore won the WCW Hardcore Title becoming the youngest ever Hardcore Champion in WCW history when he pinned ‘Nasty Boy’ Brian Knobbs (Brian Yandrisovitz) who would win the title back a month later. In late 2000 “3 Count” broke up with Helms going solo and Karagias and Moore becoming a tag-team until the WWF Chairman of the board Vince McMahon purchased and closed down WCW on Monday, 26 March 2001. He was next signed by the WWF but only appeared at house shows and in dark matches and after being their for 9 months he was released from his contract for unspecified reasons never having appeared on TV except in a few episodes of “Tough Enough”. Evan on 20 February 2004 was at the UPW 5th Anniversary show in Anaheim, California where he was involved in a 3-way match for the UPW Light Heavyweight Title against Jerry Lynn & the eventual winner & current title holder, Frank Kazarian.
