EXCLUSIVE: Shawn Daivari Explains His Release From TNA

Nick Paglino

Last night, former WWE and TNA star Shawn Daivari appeared on The Voice of Wrestling Radio Show and provided further details concerning his recent release from TNA Wrestling.

Originally, the Feast or Fired Match which took place at The Final Resolution PPV was supposed to end with both Daivari and Cody Deaner grabbing the briefcase, and the two would then wrestle for the briefcase at a later date on Impact. Deaner would have then won that match, only to open the briefcase and get the pink slip.

However, Daivari suggested that the match be changed to allow him the "fired" briefcase, so he could finish up with the company that night rather than a later one. Creative didn’t have any significant plans for Daivari in the future, so it’s been expected that at some point he would be leaving the company anyway.  Rather than holding out, the two sides agreed to let him leave as a result of the Final Resolution finish. More on Page 2…
