Shawn Daivari was the guest on the February 17th, 2010 edition of In Your Head Online Radio available at www.InYourHeadOnline.com hosted by Jack E. Jones, Oneinchbiceps and Barbie Richards.
Jack, OIB and Barbie Richards are joined by former WWE/TNA and current ROH wrestler Sheik Abdul Bashir.
Bashir has a lot of things going on with a event in New Jersey on April 10th and started working with Ring of Honor just recently.
Bashir says that Ring of Honor has changed drastically since the last time he worked for them, just like when he returned to TNA in 2008.
Bashir says that when he was there the management wanted to change names so they could own the names and make money of that. Bashir believes that with the new management that copywriting the names has lost its appeal. Bashir wanted Davari to be somewhere in the name, but upper management wanted to own the whole name.
A caller asks Bashir if any fans had a conflict with Davari and Hassan when they were doing their anti-USA gimmick in the WWE. Davari says that nothing ever happened, but rather people would be trying to get pictures. Bashir also says that he and Muhammad Hassan talk at least once a month.
A caller asks if Bashir liked working with Hassan or Kurt Angle. Bashir says that they were two different people as Hassan was just breaking in while Angle had been in there for many years. Bashir enjoyed working with both men but for different reasons.
Bashir talks about his run with TNA and how his contract talks were different from the first time. Bashir says that within one month of signing the extension, Jeff Jarrett lost all of his power and management didn’t see the same vision that Jarrett had for him.
Jack asks Bashir if he left on good terms with TNA. Listen to the interview to see if he would be willing to go back!
