Jim Ross broke down Adnan Virk’s short-lived run as the head commentator for WWE Raw during a recent interview with The Dan Le Batard Show.
Virk left WWE last month after only six weeks in the booth. Here is what Ross had to say:
“Adnan got put on TV, in a very unique product, before he was ready from a product knowledge standpoint. The wrestling fans today, with social media and all the information flow, they have a great sense of what they like and what might be wrong. He’s a solid broadcaster and they rushed to judgment too quick. You have to know the terms, the language, and the culture. That’s where he was short.”
He then talked about Vince McMahon’s philosophy on WWE announcing:
“He makes sure that he imposes his will. The simple fact is, they misassigned Adnan. He should’ve had more work in other areas and other TV shows, Lord knows they have plenty of them, to get his chops under him. Vince is a strange cat and he’s the boss. If he doesn’t hear something he likes, he makes a quick decision.”
