Before getting hired for WWE, Virk didn’t have any prior experience of commentating in pro wrestling. He was brought into the company courtesy of WWE President Nick Khan. Initially, the experience didn’t pan out for Virk as he was struggling to find his mojo. He tried to learn each day, but getting criticized in front of millions was tough for him.
