Evan Karagias is not actively participating in events and matches
Evan Karagias is known for his time as a member of the 3 Count. It saw Karagis paired alongside Shane Helms and Shannon Moore. The former WCW wrestler isn’t taking any recent bookings and it needs to be seen if he will be picked up by any promotion.
WWE would not be a fit for him, and only AEW seems to be the possible location for the former WCW Hardcore Champion. Tony Khan would have to make him an offer he can’t refuse, but it needs to be seen if any business will be interested in having him onboard.
