3MB aka The Three Man Band was a heel professional wrestling stable in WWE, consisting of Jinder Mahal, Drew McIntyre, Heath Slater, and later on Hornswoggle.

It was formed on the September 21, 2012 episode of WWE SmackDown (taped the 18th) when McIntyre and Mahal saved Slater from a match against Brodus Clay.

Background

Drew is a former Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion and Heath is a former former Tag Team Champion.

All three were victims of Brodus Clay's initial winning streak. They probably ganged up on him to get revenge. The reason for attacking Santino isn't clear, except they seem to want to attack Heath's opponents to make an impact.

Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal as a duo were a third of the six men who assaulted Kane (until his rescue by Undertaker) at Raw 1000. They did so with the aid of MidCard Mafia and Hunico & Camacho.

History

Formation (2012)

On the September 21, 2012 episode of Smackdown, Heath Slater wrestled a singles match with Brodus Clay that ended in a disqualification when Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal interfered, preventing a pinfall. After the match officially ended Mahal, Slater, and McIntyre assaulted Clay, each utilizing their finishers. In a backstage interview with Matt Striker they joked they were considering forming a band, but they all played the same instrument, the drums, leading to Striker calling them "The International House of Hits".

The stable was called "The Band" by Raw commentators during an October 1 attack on Santino Marella. They again attacked Marella, and his tag team partner Zack Ryder, on the next two episodes of Raw. Mahal and Slater, accompanied by McIntyre, then defeated Marella and Ryder in a tag team match.

Continuation (2013)

In November upon travelling to the UK, they were dressed in costumes themed after the flag of the United Kingdom and rebranded The Union Jacks where they lost on November 11 to Santino Marella & Los Matadores, and on November 15 to R-Truth & The Prime Time Players. In spite of these losses, JBL talks about them having a new 'undefeated streak' under their new moniker.

On June 12, 2014, both Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre were released from their WWE contracts, thus disbanding 3MB.
