A contract with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling has forced Kurt Angle to give up a commentary job at the World Series of Fighting's inaugural event.

WSOF President Ray Sefo today confirmed the news to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) following a tweet from the Olympic gold medalist and pro wrestler.

"There's a conflict of interest, so he won't be able to do the (Nov.) 3 show," Sefo said, adding the split was amicable. A replacement has yet to be found.

Angle was among three personalities selected to call the action at the event, which takes place at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas and airs live on NBC Sports Network. Original picks Bas Rutten and Michael Schiavello will remain on the team.

They need Frye, him and Bas were gold when they did Shark Fights.

Great news. He'd only take away from the show tbh. If they really want a 3rd guy get someone like Quadros. That would be awesome.

I wasn't too thrilled about it anyway. I wouldn't mind if it was just these 2 tbh. I like Mauro Ranallo but having him with Bas and Shavello may be a little too much lol. Having Quadros in there would be sick

I'm sick of "Pro" wrestlers trying to sneak into the MMA scene. You had your chance to have a legitimate career & you fucked up! Go back to your red neck soap opera & let John Cena concuss you with a steel chair.

.... although it would be sick to see how the Undertaker would fare in the UFC heavyweight division

imho, Angle has no business commentating on mma, and i believe having just 2 commentator is a perfect combo, something UFC got right, 3 is just too many..u just need a color commentator and one who knows what he's talking bout

Don't really mind him being there.


I imagine he would try and put his 2 cents in whenever grappling started and go on about what should be done and how to do it correctly blah blah

Chair shots to the head are banned in the WWE, simply for the reason you suggested Cena to do.
