I honestly didn't see this coming.

"'Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan is the creative director of Resistance Pro, an independent league that hosts its first fight night in Corgan's hometown of Chicago on 25 November at a 1,500-seat venue. He says his childhood interest in wrestling was reignited in the late 90s. "It was a very interesting time for wrestling," he explains from Copenhagen, where he is on tour with the Pumpkins. "It was very volatile, very unpredictable. It drew me back in.'"

Do they wrestle each other or their inner angst? In other words, are we getting The Hulk from Ang Lee or from LeTourrier?

I heard they picked up Freddy and Jason from Lawler's promotion.

Despite all his rage I hope he has some cage matches.

RSP - 1
Billy Corgan Wrestling - ZERO

Ha!

I only wish this league was already cherub rockin', because there's nothing else on TV tonight, tonight.

Interesting. I had read that Billy Corgan was a wrestling fan before, actually. Him and Nattie Neidhart, daughter of Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart are apparently friends. I think he may even have thanked her in the liner notes of one of their albums. So I guess he does know a bit about wrestling. I doubt this venture of his will last long, though.

Well I'm sure at least it will be 90000X better than WWE.

Probably, but will it be better than TNA?

Also, with this step, Corgan has come one step closer to joining ICP.

I thought it was a bad photoshop joke at first but nope, that's from the official site.

Weird...when Corgan and Courtney Love step into the cage for a no holds barred grudge match, I'll start watching.

By the looks of that video clip, no. Which is really saying something. TNA is terrible.

Read something about that the other day. Its been at least 3 years since I watched TNA save for some insane Hardy Boys promos that went viral a few months back so can anyone else say whether or not Corgan has done anything good with or for them? It was always a bit of a clusterfuck.

The episodes of Impact and the one PPV that have happened since Corgan supposedly took over have been really good. Impact is the second best weekly wrestling show,behind Lucha Underground on El Rey.
