Adnan Virk dismissed

05/25/2021

According to WWE website, WWE and Adnan Virk part ways as both agreed to go on their separate ways.  Virk was a play by play commentator on Monday Night Raw.  During seven shows, Virk's commentating was not living up to the expectation compared to someone with extended experience.  

Virk is a former baseball and boxing commentator.  He also worked for ESPN.  Virk replaced Tom Phillips and started working after WrestleMania.  He was part of the shakeup that saw former commentator Samoa Joe released and Pat McAfee added to Smackdown.  

Honestly, the WWE fans won this battle by expressing their feelings on how Virk sounded and drove the audience a not so driven commentating for three hours each week.  With Virk gone, who will fill in as the anchor of WWE Raw?  Could we see Tom Phillips return or would there be a big surprise for the next Raw episode?
