Longtime wresting fan and, of course, rock star, Billy Corgan
has started his own professional wrestling company, Resistance Pro
, in Chicago.
Nme.com reports that the Smashing Pumpkins
frontman will be creative director and come up with storylines for the company that will debut on November 25 at Chicago's Excalibur Club.
Corgan 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 the glory days.
Thanks for the report to Andrew Vaughan
