Veteran wrestler Shawn Daivari is back with WWE in his producer role after being cut in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Per the latest updates from PWinsider, the former TNA star has returned to the company as a producer. He was backstage at this week’s episode of SmackDown.

Daivari’s presence at a WWE show this week is interesting because he was just working as a producer for NWA during their latest TV tapings last week.

With WWE preparing for their return to the road next month, there has been a push within the company to increase the number of producers, in order to alleviate the workload across the board.

Shawn Daivari’s return seems to be a move in that direction. Though he isn’t the only producer WWE has added to their roster recently and Molly Holly is currently in the middle of a tryout for a similar role.

The former TNA X Division champion originally had a WWE run as a wrestler from 2004 to 2007. He wrestled for promotions such as TNA, ROH, and Lucha Underground after his release from the company.

Daivari was originally brought in as a producer back in January 2019. He was with WWE for more than a year but the former champion was released from the promotion during the coronavirus budget cuts in April 2020.
