    Billy Corgan has started a wrestling league?

    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?
    It's not going to suck itself...

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

    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.
