I suppose you mean Throh there, but I disagree; The big three should be more of a reference to the most effective fighting types overall. In my opinion, Throh only works on teams tailored exactly for it while Sawk, Gurdurr and Emboar require way less team support to work, and are better standalone Pokemon. The main draws Gurdurr has over Throh are Drain Punch and Mach Punch, giving it semi reliable recovery as well as priority, thus making it less team-support dependant (a sleeping Throh is pretty much dead unless a cleric heals it, for example).
