The departure of Sheik Abdul Bashir (Shawn Daivari) at tonight's Final Resolution PPV was legitimate. Daivari was saying his goodbyes to the TNA crew earlier today.

I heard from one current WWE talent earlier today that Daivari recently requested his release, but have not 100% confirmed that.

Multiple TNA sources, however, have claimed he was let go from the company and the move had been expected internally for some time.

Bashir had been with TNA since 2008 and had signed a contract renewal several months back but had not been in the main storyline mix for some time.
