WWE Opinion: Wrestlers Who Could Replace Jinder Mahal in 3MB

In September 2012, the WWE Universe witnessed an event quite rare in the current landscape of the company.

Three certified jobbers, Heath Slater, Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal, all aligned together in a bid to gain some notoriety, using Slater's "One Man Band" gimmick as the premise for their allegiance.

Three months later, while still largely jobbing, 3MB have become an entertaining enough group to merit a weekly time slot on WWE Monday Night Raw, and their futures seem relatively secure. 

Slater and McIntyre have eased into the role seamlessly. Their long hair invites comparisons to rock stars, and their brash yet oddly endearing personalities fit the bill perfectly.

However, the piece of the puzzle that just doesn't quite fit is Mahal.

The self-professed “Maharaja”, who according to WWE.com was "Birthed into Indian royalty and is accustomed to having only the finest things in life," is about as far away from a rock star as you could imagine.

From his turban to his awkward, forced enthusiasm during promos, Mahal is probably the last person on the WWE roster you would think "Hey, is that guy a rock star?"

Credit to Mahal, though, he is trying to make this gimmick work. But there are other superstars who would have probably have more success filling the role, and I've picked some out for your perusal.
