He debuted in 1991 when he was only 17 working various Carolinas independent promotions, including the Hardys' OMEGA promotion. He signed with WCW in 1999 and was teamed with Shannon Moore and Evan Karagias as 3-Count, a wrestling Boy Band. They feuded with the Jung Dragons, and, after WCW died in 2001, WWE picked up Helms' contract.
