“Afterwards I interviewed a couple of the WWE stars. And at one point Cole goes ‘your look is great.’ And I’m laughing and asking ‘what do you mean by that?’ And he said ‘your height. Mr. McMahon loves that because it makes the wrestlers look even bigger!’ That’s the first time ever being a little guy is a win. I went home, they called a few weeks later, said ‘hey you got the job.’”
Virk has previously worked with ESPN. He also appears on the MLB network. The RAW announcer revealed that he was hopeful his stint with the WWE would open up opportunities in the film and movie business down the line. He also stated his openness in video games as well.
Virk, along with Byron Saxton and Corey Graves will commentate on Monday Night RAW. While Cole will share the table duties with Pat McAfee over on Friday Nights.
