Dougie Nunny is on a distinguished road

Recently, Dougie Nunny of TWV sat down with Shawn Daivari, of soon to be national fame, and conducted an exclusive interview.

Below are the highlights:

Dougie Nunny: Well as I understand it, you have some big news you would like to announce. Want to go ahead and say it?
Shawn Daivari: Well it's not anything I'd like to brag about or announce, but I've been offered a contract to work for the WWE.

Dougie Nunny: How exactly did this come about?
Shawn Daivari: Well, I've been in touch with them for about 2 years now and they kept telling me that I was doing everything right, but just had to hang in there until something came up. Something has apparently come up and they felt now is the time for me to be under contract.

Dougie Nunny: How stoked are you for this now?
Shawn Daivari: I really can't put to words how I feel because it's almost surreal. Like, this is the only thing I've wanted to do with my life and now I have it. I don't want a regular job. I don't want a wife. I don't want kids. I just want to wrestle, and right now the WWE is really the only place that can let you regularly do that. I've achieved all my goals I have had planned, so now I set a new set of goals and haven't completed one yet.

Dougie Nunny: Well, I know for one that the fans know you are ready, but the important thing is, do you think you are?
Shawn Daivari: No, I don't. I feel that I am ready to learn, and that as of right now, I am capable of learning everything I need to know to be ready.

Dougie Nunny: How long did it take for it to actually sink in that you are now on the same path that Brock Lesnar, John Cena, and Randy Orton all followed?
Shawn Daivari: Like I said, it's surreal. I can't even really put to words how I feel. Sometimes I don't think about it and I sorta forget, but then when I remember or it's brought up, I just smile and get this feeling of unconditional happiness.

Dougie Nunny: While it may be a shock to you, your signing comes of no shock to most fans and this interviewer. After the incredible response you got in your dark matches when other people got nothing, we all knew you would get there soon. What do you think?
Shawn Daivari: I think I've been really lucky as far as my dark matches went. There are typically two people involved in a match, but with the WWE there is a bunch. There are the two wrestlers, the ref, the road agent, the camera men, and so many people involved in making you look good. I've been so lucky that every time I got a chance to wrestle for the WWE, I got to work with people that had no problem in making me look good. I was always treated as if I was a part of the company even when I wasn't.

Dougie Nunny: I know you leave for OVW in less than a week. How anxious are you to appear on OVW television?
Shawn Daivari: I'm excited. I've never got to work in a regular TV environment. I've done some Indy promotions where they try and do TV and make stuff make sense from week to week, but none of it ever does. Over here, you can put thought into something and know that it'll be carried out over time and finally completed instead of just TV for the sake of TV.

Dougie Nunny: Got butterflies yet?
Shawn Daivari: Oh, of course. Some people have told me the hard part is over, but I disagree. Now my progress is under constant surveillance. Now it's time for me to step up my game and deliver. I don't want, and I'm sure they don't want, to be a developmental talent. I want to DEVELOP and become a regular talent. The point of the developmental system isn't to send Indy guys to OVW. The point of it is to train wrestlers to become WWE superstars.

...

Dougie Nunny: Is there anything going to change in terms of your style now that you are in WWE?
Shawn Daivari: Oh yeah, probably almost everything. It's an entirely different beast compared to Indy wrestling. That's why I'm so excited to learn. I need to relearn everything I know, and an endless number of things on top of it I didn't.

...

Dougie Nunny: Is there any fear of WWE putting you in any kind of "stereotypical" gimmick?
Shawn Daivari: No, not really. The most successful people in wrestling are those that can adapt. If you're able to run with whatever anyone gives you, you'll be successful. Read Ric Flair's book. In WCW no matter how hard they tried to bury him, he would run with whatever they gave him and make it successful.

...

Dougie Nunny: What exactly did you expect when you got the call?
Shawn Daivari: Well, I had heard from different people that the WWE was interested in me, but I really didn't know to what extent. Dr. Tom Prichard is the guy I keep in touch with, and he's probably the number one reason I was offered a contract. So he called me and I thought he was gonna say that they were interested for a while, but decided now's not my time. But instead he kinda reminded me of all the things I've done to get here, and said they're interested in getting me signed up.

...

Dougie Nunny: Now this is a question that most people tend to avoid after making it to the "big time." Now that your Indy career is over, are you going to miss it at all?
Shawn Daivari: Oh, of course! Some of the most unforgettable moments of my life will come from Indy wrestling. Traveling thousands of miles around the country on such a low budget makes an unbelievable bond between people. I feel almost closer to some wrestlers then family. It's definitely something I'm going to miss, but that chapter has already been written. I'm DEFINETLY looking forward to writing the next chapter.

Dougie Nunny: Besides the long trips and naps in the car, what aren't you going to miss?
Shawn Daivari: I'm not gonna miss the shady promoters that take something that people love to do and make it unenjoyable. To take something that wrestlers are literally killing themselves; just because they love it, just because they want to make a name for themselves, just because they want to entertain the fans; and make it unenjoyable is just pathetic on their part.

...

Dougie Nunny: Well, you have been doing this for 5 years now. Was there any fear for your gimmick after 9/11?
Shawn Daivari: No because after 9/11, I saw a market was created. We saw it with anti-bin laden bumper stickers, US Flags sold, and Taliban playing cards. A market was created that people didn't mind being a part of and that's what I feel I did. I really didn't' do anything different. It's amazing what appearance can do. But no, I wasn't and am not afraid.

....

Dougie Nunny: You have had so many accomplishments, but besides WWE, which has stood out the most?
Shawn Daivari: Staying healthy and never hurting anyone. I don't know if there's anyone out there that loves wrestling as much or more then I do, but if that's the case I would HATE to hurt them and take it away. The worst thing that can happen to me is for wrestling to be taken away, so I'm happy I've never been seriously hurt, and am even happier I have never seriously hurt anyone else.

...

Dougie Nunny: What do you feel about the comments that Arik Cannon said about you in a recent interview?
Shawn Daivari: As far as the "he's doing what he has to do,” Cannon is right as far as there is more then one way to do things. Chris Benoit went to Japan, Europe, Mexico, ECW, and WCW before he went to the WWE. There's nothing wrong with that, in fact that's probably the best way to go. I just set the WWE as my number one priority, and everything else was below that. I still tried to get to Japan, Mexico, et cetera, but an offer from the WWE came first. I also see how he said it was hurting me, because there were certain opportunities I declined because I felt it would hurt my chances with the WWE. Those opportunities were some that some Indy wrestlers would die for, so I can see how he would view it as hurting me by declining.

Dougie Nunny: A lot of people are now saying there is some heat between you and Arik. Would you say there is or is this all a big misunderstanding?
Shawn Daivari: No, I wouldn't say so at all. I talk to him on a semi-daily basis. We’re the kinda friends that will always be friends regardless of wrestling. We have different points of views on wrestling and disagree A LOT about the biz. Some people see our disagreements on wrestling as if we're not friends, but those are just our opinions. Friendships have nothing to do with your line of work.

I have no idea who this guy is. I know nothin about him, but I will comment on a few lines from the interview....

Good luck with that, seeing as WWE puts wrestling second to entertainment. Not to mention the fact that you'll probably be a nobody jobber for about 5 years before you get any kind of real TV time. By then, you'll be past your prime. Aagain I say, 'good luck'.

LMFAO, completed like Edge's attacker? Sometimes I wonder if WWE realizes some of the garbage they throw on the air storyline wise. Half the shit they do makes ZERO sense. At least this guy knows how to be a kiss ass. Vince LOVES that

Vince is a genius wrestling promoter, but i'm sure he's shady as fuck. Not to mention the fact that wrestling is VERY unenjoyable now (for the most part). Again, at least this guy knows how to kiss ass



Is this guy any good? Anyone know...?

The general consensus is that he is so-so.

I think he is great.

Plus, I think a lot of your points are refutable.

Though they say it is sports entertainment, it really isn't. In the end, what is the main focus? The ring and the competitors in there.

It is wrestling.

Sure, not like Puro, but it is wrestling.

And in indy wrestling, storylines get thrown out even during the matches. It is complete crap. They finish and continue about 10% of all their storylines. You are complaing about 1 storyline option (out of about half a dozen) when Indy's boast 10 times that number.

And promoters are shady, Vince isn't. Promoters promise you X amount of dollars and you're lucky if you end up with about half of that. Vince does contracts meaning you virtually can't get scewed the way you did on the Indy scene.

If this were a REAL wrestling forum you would see people praising Shawn Daivari, he's paid his dues in highschool gymnasiums all ove rthe place. Its about time the WWE acknowledged someone with some real talent.

Shawn is better than you people deserve.

Good to see you here Dougie. Its nice to see there are some REAL wrestling fans on this site.

I cant fucking believe it... Kurt and myself agree on something... This guy is nothing more then some fucking jobber out of as Bloodice says... A fucking school gymnasium... Ice... You want the WWe to acknowledge talent... Tell them to hit the Olympics, thats your real wrestling... not slapping eachother about having a who can hit the highest spot competition in front of two people at a school auditorium.

Well hate to burst your bubble, Shane, but I also agree with you (whoa, Shane agreeing with 2 other people, unheard of ). I believe he will have to lose quite a few matches until he will become somebody. High school gyms? WTF? I wrestled in HS gyms when I 17/ 18 for the school team. This guy should try getting another job to fall back on, in case Vince disenfrancises him.

wow, good way to come piss everyone off...aren't you the same guy that lied to everyone..that's what i heard...regardless, things are different here now, and to insult the forum is just ridiculous...but either way, it sucks when someone comes on here talking about an indy wrestler and an interview they supposedly did with the guy yet didn't show a pic, or tell anyone on this forum who the guy is? maybe that would have helped a little

The interview TELLS you who the wrestler is.

I left a LINK to go to the full interview, because the FULL interview is 7 PAGES. Do you really want me to post 7 pages?

There is a pic in the link.
