As seen this past Sunday night at Final Resolution, Sheik Abdul Bashir, real name Shawn Daivari, took part in the “Feast or Fired” match and was able to grab one of the four briefcases. However, the briefcase he drew contained a pink slip, which led to him being immediately fired from the company.
For those wondering of the legitimacy of his departure from the organization, his departure is in fact legitimate. He said his goodbyes to fellow colleagues prior to the event.
There are conflicting reports going around on whether it was the company or Daivari responsible for the parting of ways. While those close to the former X Division champion say he handed in his notice, those within TNA are saying it was the company’s decision to let him go.
Daivari had been with the company since last year and signed a contract renewal over the summer, but had not been used in a meaningful way in quite some time.
