Billy Corgan Teams Up With TNA Wrestling

(Radio.com) Billy Corgan has been kicking around the wrestling industry for quite some time now, having created his own organization Resistance Pro Wrestling. Now, however, the Smashing Pumpkins frontman is venturing even further into the sport.

He just joined TNA Wrestling as a senior producer of creative and talent development, where he'll be developing characters and writing storylines for the television show Impact Wrestling on Destination America.

While the move might seem left field to some, Corgan has actually been trying to break through the wrestling TV world for awhile. "I'm fully committed to using my 30 years of entertainment experience," Corgan said in a statement, "along with my deep-rooted passion for pro wrestling, to take on the thrilling challenge of creatively contributing to IMPACT WRESTLING, finding and developing new talent, and working eye-to-eye with the best-of-the-best. For as cultures currently evolve at great speed, so must pro wrestling meet and supersede such expectations to thrive." Read more here.
