Kurt Angle ‏@RealKurtAngle
As Requested that I Must Announce, I will not be Commentating @mmaworldseries Nov3 on NBC Sports,Due to A Conflict of Interested

Read entire Twitter...

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.

I thought this was B.S. at first, but then saw a source and realized it's true.  It's damn true.

I always found it a little silly that he was named announcer in the first place. Phone Post

Well, he has name value, he's a good talker, and an Olympic gold medalist in wrestling. I get the decision. It's not one I would have made, but I understand it. Phone Post

This sucks.


I wanted to see an Olympic Wrestler give out analysis on the takedown's and ground game.




I am tired of hearing the same typical "he is going for the takedown" commentary we get.

There was too much bald in that commentary team anyway. They should pick up Stephen Quadros who is still one of the best color commentators in MMA. And if they still insist on using a pro wrestler, for the love of god do NOT replace him with Bill Goldberg. Phone Post

  You might be on to something there....

I was thinking there may have been some outcry that a "pro-wrestler" was commentating on MMA. Althought if it wasn't coming from the UG, I don't know where it would be coming from.. lol

Oh he definitely has credentials, but I just didn't understand why him and not someone who's been more relevant on the MMA scene as far as name value. Guess not many jumped at the opportunity. Phone Post

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.

Bas is already in there along with Michael Schiavello ... Kurt was the third man.

Stephen Quadros would be a good call if available.
