They're a 3 Man Band, bay-bay!
3MB has been one man short thanks to Drew McIntyre taking some time away to deal with the death of his mother, and he'll miss the Survivor Series pay-per-view (PPV) this coming Sun., Nov. 18, 2012, at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana, but the rest of the crew will be back in action on the free live streaming pre-show.
That's because WWE recently announced Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal will take on Team CoBro, Zack Ryder and Santino Marella, to get the crowd warmed up for the main show.
For the typically fun-loving "Team Co-Bro," the bout will mark a unique opportunity for payback, as the air-guitar-shredding triumvirate of Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre has ambushed The Milan Miracle & Long Island Iced-Z on Raw on multiple occasions since forging their pact. Whether 3MB targeted Marella & Ryder out of pure malice or solely as way to establish themselves as serious competition is unclear, though the musical Superstars have already notched one victory over the duo on SmackDown.
You're not going to hear any complaints from me on this one, though McIntyre is easily the best member of 3MB and his absence takes away from the match. That said, Slater makes up for it and Ryder and Marella are always good for a few laughs and spots that get the crowd going.
