Sheik Abdul Bashir (a.k.a. Shawn Daivari) was robbed of the TNA X-Division title when the referee in the match attacked Bashir, giving opponent Eric Young the chance to make the 3-count and win the match.
TNA referee Shane Sewell, a former Canadian wrestler, has had a couple of altercations with Bashir in the past, but they were always post match. This is the first that actually affected the outcome.
It’s hard to believe that they wouldn’t need involvement from TNA management to reverse the decision on that, but I wouldn’t count on them doing the right thing.
The only good outcome of this is that if the decision sticks, it looks like it may cause a split in the “good guys” locker room, creating a third faction. When there are more than just “good guys” and “bad guys”, things can get interesting.
What happened to Bashir was a travistiy of injustice.
