Former WWE and TNA star Dara Daivari (Sheik Abdul Bashir) recently did an interview with Low Blow Radio, he discusses his release from TNA and the pull of veterans in the TNA locker room. Dara can be seen currently wrestling for Ring of Honor as Shawn Daivari.
“Well when I came into TNA I had a very good relationship with Jeff Jarrett, who seemed to have more or less run things at the time. If I ever needed anything he could get it done. Once he got pushed out of the door things changed significantly. His job was divided among 10-15 different people, many of which I didn’t have the relationship like I had with Jeff. I signed a two-year contract assuming that the entire time my boss would be Jeff which wasn’t the case. Management and I didn’t see eye to eye on some things and that’s how things ended.”
Veterans in the TNA locker room:
“Well, a common misconception is that the veterans in TNA may demand management to put them over, which in reality isn’t the case at all. I never witnessed that during my entire stay with TNA. If a veteran goes over it’s because of creative. I remember when Kevin Nash was doing an angle with Samoa Joe and really wanted to put Joe over. Creative kept booking it wrong and Nash eventually went over, despite what he wanted.”
