• Old School WCW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WCW Veteran Evan Karagias celebrates his 46th birthday today.
At first, Evan was used as a jobber when he joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1997, but by late 1999 he joined “Sugar” Shane Helms & Shannon Moore and together they formed ‘3 Count’, a faction with the gimmick of a boy band.
When Vince McMahon bought the promotion in March 2001, Karagias was among the 24 WCW wrestlers who received a WWF contract, but he didn’t last long and only appeared a few times during the infamous Invasion angle, before he was released a few months later.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY EVAN KARAGIAS!
• Backstage News On Seth Rollins’ Heel Turn On RAW
As seen on this week’s episode of RAW, former Universal Champion “The Beast Slayer” Seth Rollins turned heel.
According to the Wrestling Observer, the idea behind this heel turn is that Rollins believes in his mind that he’s a babyface and he’s doing what’s right for the WWE.
His character from now on is going to be similar to that of Bret Hart from 1997:
“Yes, Seth Rollins has turned heel. I know a lot of times we see these weird storylines and such on Raw and I think somebody has turned heel and I’m told ‘no, no, no they’re still a babyface’ or whatever. This is definitely a heel turn for Seth Rollins.
This is not like a slow turn that they’re doing right now. This is his idea. This is his character. He is a heel who thinks he right. I guess he thinks he’s 1997 Bret Hart.
The Seth Rollins character thinks that you the fans are being unfair to WWE. So, he’s gonna wrestle like a babyface while burying you. That seems to be the plan. I guess we’ll see what they do next week.”
