We surprisingly left them out on our ‘Greatest Stables’ podcast. So we decided to dedicate a full podcast to the members of 3MB.
Listen now on
In 2012, Heath Slater, Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal were struggling to find their place on WWE’s main roster. But that all changed when they came together to form their own stable: The Three Man Band (3MB).
The majority of Heath Slater’s career up to this point was always being part of a stable, such as the Nexus and the Corre. He was an ideal candidate to act as the de-facto leader of the group, given his character was that of a ‘One Man Band’.
Jinder Mahal’s arrival to WWE was met with intrigue. Having initially been paired with The Great Khail, he was soon relegated to being enhancement talent on shows like Superstars and NXT. Being a part of 3MB gave him a place on the card and even allowed him to highlight his more humorous side, a big change from his ‘Maharaja’ persona.
Billed as ‘The Chosen One’ shortly after his debut, the initial run of Scotland’s own Drew McIntyre in 2009 was full of promise. Within a couple of years though, his career entered a slump. Joining the 3MB stable gave him some rejuvenation and led to the debut of his new ‘Claymore Kick’ finishing move.
Whilst hardly setting the company alight, their entertaining promo work and willingness to get the gimmick over struck a chord with many WWE fans.
On this latest podcast, Steven is joined by David and Strak. They discuss the impact that 3MB made in WWE and how the individual members’ careers have progressed in different directions since disbanding.
