In your daily, "Excuse me, but what did you just say??" we have Billy Corgan — the frontman from the Smashing Pumpkins — starting a wrestling company in Chicago.
Apparently Corgan has been a fan since he was a kid, and just recently decided to learn the business side of it all.
Here's what he had to say:
"Our vision is to try to grow talent. We have people who are going to work for us who are pretty well known on the indie circuit. You have to start somewhere, and part of that is creating a curiosity in the audience."
The company is called Resistance Pro, and they're looking to add more shows soon.
"We have to start in Chicago and build a name for ourselves and build enough of a reputation to take it other places. It's a serious endeavor. I want this to succeed strictly on its ideas. If I had to artificially prime the audience because of my musical life that's sad. This is going to succeed on its own ideas, not because I jumped the shark."
Well, regardless of what he wants to do, we wish him success. Who cares is some find it odd??
Good luck, Billy!
