Smashing Pumpkins' frontman Billy Corgan said he plans to make a reality show about running a wrestling organization. Corgan, who in 2011 launched the wrestling company Resistance Pro, told Mister Saint Laurent of the Major League Wrestling podcast, "We're trying to get a reality show made. We just signed a deal with a big reality show producer. A guy with an incredible track record. We're in good hands."
He added, "We believe that wrestling is fascinating on many, many levels. Socially, politically, even economically. The struggles independent wrestlers go through to try to find work. Those are real struggles that anybody can identify with. We want to show what goes on in a wrestling company behind the scenes."
- Corgan explained, "I've had like nine or ten meetings so far about it. With different people. A lot of them wanted to know if this would be your typical manufactured reality show and I told them that with a wrestling company, you don't have to manufacture reality. There's plenty of it to go around."
- The new Smashing Pumpkins album, Oceania, will be available in stores and online on June 19th.
