Family Affair VI: The Daivaris

Jabot SingleterryCorrespondent IJanuary 25, 2009

Surprised? I thought I'd add some young blood to the series. Young and talented, they are The Daivari Brothers. Whether performing together or in singles action, they've made a name for themselves on the indy circuit.

Shawn Daivari

Born on April 30, 1984. He grew up admiring the likes of Mick Foley and Bret Hart, but his childhood hero was Shawn Michaels. Trained by Adnan Al Kassey, Tom Prichard, and "Trainer of Champions" Eddie Sharkey. He made his pro wrestling debut in 2000.

Daivari debuted in the WWE as the manager of Mohammad Hassan. While in the WWE, he would also manage Kurt Angle, Mark Henry, and The Great Khali. The superstars he's managed have all feuded with The Undertaker.

Daivari would put managing aside and start focusing on his wrestling career in WWE, competing on Smackdown to ECW and then RAW. He was drafted to RAW through the Supplemental Draft in 2007.

He asked to be released after he was told that he'd be getting less air time and would be working preliminary and mid-card matches. WWE granted his release.

Shawn now wrestles in TNA as Sheik Abdul Bashir and is a former X Division champion.

Arya Daivari

Born April 11, 1989, the youngest of three brothers. Arya is currently attending college in Minnesota, but also making a name for himself on the independent circuit. He's faced and defeated his brother Shawn and he's also won Tag Team gold with him on the indy circuit.

Arya suffered a elbow injury during a four-way tables match in November. Since then he's healed and is back on the circuit, looking for more gold to put around his waist.

It's only a matter of time before he's called up by one of the "Big Two." Let's hope he goes to TNA and teams up with his brother.

Note: To see Arya in action, go to youtube.com and type in Arya Daivari.
