Less than two months after he started with WWE as the main commentator on Monday Night Raw Adnan Virk has agreed to part ways with the company.
WWE and Adnan Virk have mutually agreed to part ways. WWE thanks Adnan for his work.
Starting with the company following WrestleMania 37, Virk became the main play-by-play voice of the new trio consisting of himself, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton.
Immediate feedback to his commentary style was mixed, but Adnan stated, while speaking to Jimmy Traina on the Sports Illustrated Media podcast, that he received positive feedback from Vince McMahon after his second show.
"I met him after the second show and he was great. He was really supportive and gave me great feedback. He's giving real-time feedback. I know what he's feeling. When you're there, as a lifelong fan, there's so much that goes through your mind when you see Vince McMahon. Obviously, you think of him and what he's done on the air, but off the air, it's one of the great American success stories ever. As I was talking to him, it's tough not to think of all these accomplishments," he said.
Adnan Virk called one pay-per-view, WWE WrestleMania Backlash, and called his final event on Monday, May 24.
Reacting to his exit on Twitter, Virk thanked WWE for the experience and thanked Corey Graves and Byron Saxton for being by his side.
Thanks to @WWE for a wonderful opportunity. The weekly travel along with my other jobs was a grind for me and my family. Am grateful to everyone with the company especially @WWEGraves and @ByronSaxton for being such fantastic teammates. https://t.co/lrP0fCAMXz— Adnan Virk (@adnansvirk) May 25, 2021
