• Former AEW World Champion Was Originally Wanted As A Member Of 3MB
Former WWE Superstar Heath Slater was recently interviewed by ‘Such Good Shoot’, where he revealed that he originally wanted Dean Ambrose (AEW’s Jon Moxley), Fandango and EC3 as his co-members in 3MB back in the day.
We all know Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal ended up getting those positions and both had been released by the company afterwards, but they returned to WWE years later and won the WWE Championship.
Here’s what Slater said:
“He wanted me to be the one man band. No, it was the one man rock band. The one man southern rock band. The one man country band, or I don’t know, he had me doing so much stuff to where I was like, ‘Man, can I just be the one man band?’.
I ran with it, ran with it for a while. Then it wasn’t going nowhere and ran its course. I was like, ‘Come on. I need a band now. I’ve been a one man band. Let me have a band.’ They’re just like, ‘Oh, who are you thinking?’ I pitch [Dean] Ambrose, Fandango, and EC3. And this is before any of them are on TV. Fandango and EC3 were on NXT season three or something. So I pitch for those three.
And then they were like, ‘Okay, let me get back with you.’ And this is Michael Hayes the whole time I’m talking with. The month goes by, nothing. You know, like, ‘Hey, baby, what the hell, man? I need this band!’”
