Interview with former WWE/TNA Star, Shawn Daivari

“DieHard” Derek Gordon conducts a one on one sit down with the former WWE and TNA star to discuss his career in both organizations, his challenges as a smaller competitor, the state of the indy wrestling scene, and what led to his TNA release after a successful run as X-division champion.

In a business that was built on characters that are larger than life, Shawn Daivari defied the offs for the smaller athlete with giant dreams. Considered by many as one of the most underrated talents in the last decade, not only did Daivari have an uphill battle in making his dream a reality based on his size, but he also faced many challenges due to his ethnicity – as the pro wrestling world immediately exploited him as an anti-American villain and capitalizing on the 9/11 tragedies.
In this interview, Shawn Daivari discusses his experiences as a smaller performer, an antagonist performer, and most of all, as a performer of a young man who worked hard to achieve his dreams and share the ring with his childhood heroes.
