Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has revealed that he is starting is own professional wrestling empire: Resistance Pro Wrestling.
He made the big reveal during an appearance on Fox News in Chicago Thursday. Because that’s where he’s from — Chicago.
“I’ve been involved sort of behind the scenes with pro wrestling for about a decade and made a lot of friends in the business,” he explained.
“It’s a very insular business and it’s a long story, but I essentially got involved with some brothers who had a wrestling promotion. We decided to form our own promotion and we’re going to try to bring back to the glory days.”
Corgan will play the role of creative director and will be in charge of all the storylines.
It amazes me how into wrestling Billy is. I always figured him more refined, more evolved than that. But he loves wrestling. Even though its fake and borderline homoerotic.
Resistance Pro’s first wrestling event takes place November 25 at Excalibur in Chicago. Go. I’d love to hear what this is like.
