Evan Karagias (born November 27, 1973) is an Americanmarker professional wrestler and actor.

Biography

Karagias's family are of Greekmarker origin. He started as a model, and appeared in numerous fitness magazines, including Men's Workout.

However, he is best known as having wrestled for World Championship Wrestling (WCW) where he graduated from the Power Plant in 1997. Initially wrestling as 'Evan Courageous', then 'Evan Kourageous', he finally wrestled under his own name, with the legend 'Outrageous' emblazoned on the back of his trunks.

Karagias began as a jobber, and has the dubious distinction of having more defeats to his record as a solo wrestler in WCW as a proportion of all his matches than anyone else. Of almost 50 televised solo matches wrestled with WCW, he won eight.

At Mayhem 1999, Karagias challenged Disco Inferno for the WCW World Cruiserweight Championship. He won the match, gaining his first belt. It was finally taken from him by Madusa at Starrcade, with whom he had been involved in an ongoing on-screen ringside relationship, after he was found flirting with Spice of the Nitro Girls. However, Spice gave Karagias a low blow during the match, Madusa pinned him to become the first female ever to win the WCW World Cruiserweight Championship.

As Madusa's boyfriend, he also feuded with Oklahoma over the Cruiserweight Title. Evan Karagias was rescued from that angle and put in a 3-man "boy band" group while in WCW known as 3 Count with Shannon Moore and Shane Helms. While in the group, Karagias won the WCW Hardcore Championship when he, Moore and Helms simultaneously pinned then-champion Brian Knobbs.

After WCW's sale to the World Wrestling Federation, Karagias went to the WWF and made his debut during the Invasion as a member of the The Alliance. He was rarely seen and was released after 8–9 months without ever being used as a wrestler. He then joined the AWA Superstars of Wrestling, where he held the AWA Superstars of Wrestling Heavyweight Championship three times between 2002 and 2003. At the Ultimate Pro Wrestling 5th Anniversary Show on February 20, 2004, Frankie Kazarian defeated Jerry Lynn and Evan Karagias to retain his UPW Lightweight Championship. Since then, Karagias has been inactive from wrestling. However, on October 28, 2006, Karagias returned to wrestling and appeared at a TNT Pro Wrestling show to face off with X-Pac (who had Scott Hall in his corner) in a charity benefit match.
