On Tuesday, WWE announced that Adnan Virk and the company have mutually agreed to part ways. Virk was announced as the new lead commentator for Monday Night Raw on April 12, one day after WrestleMania 37. He was paired with Corey Graves and Byron Saxton as he replaced Tom Phillips as the red brand’s head play-by-play man. Virk’s time with the company lasts just over a month.

Here is WWE’s official statement on the matter via WWE.com:
WWE and Adnan Virk have mutually agreed to part ways. WWE thanks Adnan for his work.
Virk currently works for MLB Network and is a former MLB commentator for ESPN. The 42-year-old stated in an interview with The Athletic when he joined WWE that his “10-year-old self would be jumping with glee.” Unfortunately, the run has come to an early end.
WWE has yet to name a replacement for Virk when it comes to being the lead voice on Monday Night Raw. It would be reasonable to assume Phillips could take over the spot once again. He has been the lead commentator for 205 Live since his removal from Monday nights. Time will tell if that is the case moving forward.
