Smashing Pumpkins frontman to start wrestling company

According to an interview given on Fox news on Thursday, Billy Corgan plans to start his own professional wrestling company.

Says Corgan of the new venture: “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 said. “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.” [Source: Blabbermouth]

The company, Resistance Pro Wrestling will take part in its first even on November 25th at Excalibur in Chicago.

Meanwhile, the band’s new album ‘Oceania’ is scheduled for release sometime during the same month, having been delayed from an original September release date.
