WWE confirmed that they had 'mutually agreed to part ways' with Adnan Virk on Tuesday.
The Monday Night Raw play-by-play announcer was in the role for just 43 days, having joined WWE after WrestleMania 37. Virk himself hinted on social media that the decision was indeed mutual, citing the weekly travel and clashes with his other jobs as 'a grind'.
Virk's style of commentary came in for some harsh criticism from fans and Fightful Select is reporting that both WWE Officials and Virk himself knew quite early on into the working relationship that the situation wasn't working out.
Regardless of whether Virk also wanted to leave his position, WWE sources claim that the promotion had already decided that a change was needed prior to his final appearance on Monday Night Raw - on May 24, 2021 - and were going to make their move regardless.
A replacement has been confirmed for Virk with former Bellator MMA announcer Jimmy Smith stepping into WWE's three-man commentator booth on the red brand, joining Corey Graves and Byron Saxton.
