A statement read: “WWE and Adnan Virk have mutually agreed to part ways. WWE thanks Adnan for his work.”
The 42-year-old is best known for his work with ESPN between 2010-19.
He also worked for DAZN and the MLB Network – roles which he appears to still be continuing.
Virk tweeted after the announcement: “Thanks to @WWE for a wonderful opportunity. The weekly travel along with my other jobs was a grind for me and my family.
“Am grateful to everyone with the company especially @WWEGraves and @ByronSaxton for being such fantastic teammates.”
Now a report says the company is making departmental changes which is leading to a number of employees being laid off.
That comes just a month after a number of superstars were released following 'Mania.
Fightful says WWE’s Advanced Media Group and TV departments are merging, meaning there are going to be a number of redundancies from teams such as WWE.com, YouTube plus editorial and production.

Brian Pellegatto, senior vice president of production, and Jaylar Donlan, the executive vice president of advanced media group, were both among the casualties.
Sapp added: “There are some HR exit meetings set for this afternoon for many of those who were let go by WWE.
“There are some high-ranking people in those departments and longtime supervisors among the cuts.”
Jay Rosenstock, who led international TV, was among at least 36 employees to be let go, according to reports.
Both James Wortman, a former content director in WWE, and Adam Kirshner, manager in media & metadata operations, have announced their own releases on Twitter.
