Shannon Sharpe is going to be leaving Undisputed very soon. In fact, the plan is for him to leave the show once the NBA Finals are over. Overall, this is something that a lot of fans saw coming. After all, Sharpe and Skip Bayless had gotten into quite a few arguments as of late. It was becoming clear that the work environment was toxic, and subsequently, Sharpe is going off to do his own thing.
