MMAJunkie is reporting that the conflict was over his contract with TNA Wrestling.

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.

"There's a conflict of interest, so he won't be able to do the (Nov.) 3 show," WSOF President Ray 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.

Bas is already in there along with Michael Schiavello ... Kurt was the third man. Stephen Quadros would be a good call if available.

Its TNA/Spikea that isnt letting him do it. He is a member of TNA which is on Spike, Spike is now home of Bellator, WSOF is now a competitor of Bellator, thats why.
