Talented group with good matches against the Yung Dragons, Evan Karagias was famously an absolute knob end though and it came across on camera. The stuff with Tank Abbott was funny for a little while but like usual they milked the shit out of it

Thought they were a great stable and a very funny parody of all the boy bands that were around at that time.

I remember them having an epic ladder match against the Yung Dragons once

I liked it. A lot actually.


Because it took 3 guys, who weren't going to amount to shit in that environment and made them stand out. Even better, they put them against 3 other guys who weren't going to amount to shit in that environment and got some good matches out of it in 2000. I even liked the Tank Abbot involvement.


Great booking, IMO, because it was a play off pop culture at the time and worked well, based solely on the look of Helms, Karagias and Moore. It reminds me of ECW style booking, kind of like the FBI, which had 2 (3 counting JT Smith) who were as Italian as french fries but the gimmick got over. Sadly today, that kind of stable is known as 3MB, who really have no purpose. 3 Count had a purpose and that was to steal the show with the Yung Dragons.


And it was a helluva lot better than what Karagias was doing with Madusa.

Three Count is an example of Vince Russo making something out of nothing.

Originally Karaigas was a low midcarder who jobbed to Madusa, Shannon Moore and Shane Helms were both jobbing on WCW Saturday Night and Worldwide.

Russo gives them a gimmick that got them a lot of heat and got them on TV regularly. As for what I thought, they were great.

It really fit that time period with how huge boy bands like the Backstreet Boys and N'Sync were at the time. They were talented wrestlers too. I marked out the first time I saw Tank Abbott come out and try to dance with them. It was hilarious.

They were similar to Too Cool but Too Cool was initially just two nerdy white boys doing a pretty fly for a white guy type of gimmick.



3 Count was basically a boy band gimmick with singing etc. Too Cool never did that kind of stuff.

Highly underrated. Managed to get fairly intense heel heat, which was the point. They were far superior to their WWE counterparts (Too Cool), both in Wrestling ability and gimmick. It was actually hilarious, and even though I rarely watched WCW by 2000, I would leave it on Nitro just to see some of their angles. What I find amusing is that WWE ranked them one of the worst tag team ideas of the Nitro years. I think the WWE was just jealous that they did not think about it, as I could have seen it getting over huge if they were on Raw.
