Former WWE writer Andrew Goldstein named 3MB as the first batch of superstars that WWE should cut first during the next round of roster releases.
“It’s just like, you know, hire locals. Why do we have to trop these guys out? To me, they’re not so entertaining. Apparently, the redhead (Heath Slater), he’s very well-liked backstage,” Goldstein said.
“Every week, to see them get crushed by The Shield and then by Brock, and they’re like the new jobbers. They’re main roster guys and they have gimmicks, but they’re basically …” Goldstein said before he was interrupted.
Goldstein was an active member of the WWE writing team back in 2006.

WWE’s website has an interview recap up with David Otunga from the new issue of WWE Magazine. Otunga was asked about the success of his former Nexus partners:
“I think everybody has been doing great. We pretty much are the new top guys of WWE. We’re all here now. Ryback just contested a championship match, and he’s got another one coming up. Daniel Bryan has been a champion before and Wade Barrett is well on his way. Heath Slater has his own crew now. I just filmed my first movie with Halle Berry. I think it all turned out better than we planned.”

3MB’s Drew McIntyre, Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal were set to give their State of WWE Address on last night’s RAW but it didn’t happen. This is the second time they had a segment nixed from RAW as their segment from Bourbon Street a few weeks back still hasn’t aired. Last night, they posted a series of Tout videos where it appeared they partied too hard in their hotel room. They also posted Tout videos of them getting tattoos. Here’s a clip of Jinder about to get his first tat:
Drew McIntyre commented after RAW:
“Due to circumstances beyond 3MBs control. The state of WWE address has been put back slightly. We apologize and was unavoidable #WWEAddress”
