Smashing Pumpkins mainman Billy Corgan told My FOX News Chicago yesterday that he’s starting his own professional wrestling company, Resistance Pro Wrestling. “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.”
Corgan will be the creative director, in charge of the storylines. He hopes to take wrestling back to a more plot-driven basis, while also trying to raise awareness about concussions and health issues. Resistance Pro’s first wrestling event takes place November 25 at Excalibur in Chicago.
