3MB is a villainous alliance of professional wrestlers in World Wrestling Entertainment. The group contains Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, and Drew McIntyre.


Early Incarnation (2012)[edit]

On July 23 at Raw 1000, Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre would confront Kane, with a group of superstars consisting of Curt Hawkins, Tyler Reks, Hunico, and Camacho. Mahal would claim that each member in the group to have been given no opportunity within the WWE and would take one by taking down Kane, but the sudden appearance of the Undertaker would halt the six's advance. The Brothers of Destruction would proceed to attack the group and quickly take them out.[1][2]

Formation (2012-present)[edit]

Mahal and McIntyre saved Heath Slater from Brodus Clay, though their interference would result in a DQ loss for Slater. The three would then proceed to take down Clay, with Mahal finishing the assault by performing the Camel Clutch on the "Funkasaurus".[3] The trio went through three names in short order; first being called "The International House of Hits" in an online interview with Matt Striker,[4] then "The Encore" on Twitter,[5] "The Band" on 1 October Raw,[6] before finally settling on "The 3MB". Soon after, 3MB took down Yoshi Tatsu[7], Santino Marella and Zack Ryder as well as partnering up Mahal and Slater in tag-team matches. At the Survivor Series pre-show, Mahal and Slater would defeat Team Cobro.
