Adnan Virk, the new play-by-play announcer for WWE RAW, had not met Vince McMahon until this week’s episode of RAW. When they did have a meeting, Virk said that McMahon gave real-time feedback.
During the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast, Virk revealed that he has now met Vince McMahon. He also revealed some of the conversation that they had. All in all, it seems that Vince McMahon is very supportive and will carry on with Virk as planned.
“I met him after the second show and he was great. He was really supportive. He gave good feedback.”
“I would say he’s giving real-time feedback. I definitely know what he’s feeling,” Virk said. “It’s interesting — when you’re there, as a lifelong fan, there’s so much that goes through your mind when you see Vince McMahon. Obviously, you think of him [and] what he’s done on the air. But then off the air, I was telling my friends, this is like one of the great American success stories ever. If you think back like how he bet on himself the first WrestleMania. The fact what this has grown into — this is a global entity. It’s kind of remarkable. As I was talking to him, it’s tough not to just think about all that he’s accomplished. It’s amazing.”
Adnan Virk never called a pro wrestling match prior to entering WWE. He is learning live on the air in front of millions. Vince McMahon is also likely in his ear as well to make sure that he stays in the right direction.
