Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan starts his own pro wrestling company

Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has started his own professional wrestling company.

The singer, whose band are currently gearing up for the release of their new studio album ‘Oceania’, has called the firm Resistance Pro and has said he will be operating as ‘creative director’.

Corgan’s role will be to create ‘story lines’ for the wrestling events and to be the public face of the organisation. His company will host its first event on November 25 at Chicago’s Excalibur Club. The event is called ‘Black Friday’.

Asked about the company, he told Fox News 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. 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.
Smashing Pumpkins tour the UK in November, playing a total of seven shows, including two nights at London’s O2 Academy Brixton.
