The Adnan Virk-WWE relationship was short lived.
Virk's departure from the company was announced May 25, as a mutual departure, but Fightful Select has learned a little more about the split.

Both sides, we're told, were very aware that the situation wasn't working out, and it appeared they knew it early on.
