New WWE Raw Commentator Adnan Virk Yet To Meet Vince McMahon

Virk made his Monday Night Raw debut this week

Adnan Virk has revealed he is yet to meet his new boss, Vince McMahon, despite starting work for WWE this past week. 

Virk is the new play-by-play commentator on Monday Night Raw, replacing Tom Phillips. The former ESPN announcer was joined by Corey Graves and Byron Saxton on Monday, having auditioned for the position in WWE in February. 

Despite being offered the job, Virk is yet to actually meet WWE Chairman McMahon, revealing his audition was with Michael Cole and that the Smackdown commentator and WWE President Nick Khan both vouched for him to the CEO. 

Speaking to Boomer In The Morning, Virk said: "I haven't talked to Vince. When I went to the audition, he was there. (Michael) Cole was like, 'He's pretty busy today.' My thought was, if I don't get the job, at least I could say that I met him, just for the stories.

"When they put my tape before him, I think Nick (Khan) was lobbying, Cole was obviously a big fan. [Vince] didn't know who I was. He is a workaholic and so focused on WWE. He's not watching Baseball Tonight, but it was like, 'I like his voice, I like his style, if you guys vouch for him, cool.' 

"This weekend at WrestleMania, I thought I would meet him, but it's WrestleMania. He was way too busy. I still haven't met him yet, which is perhaps surprising and perhaps not. It's surprising if you know how invested he is in the product. I'm sure he was watching and making notes. I'm sure I'll get criticism. It'll be cool when I actually get to meet him."
