Billy Corgan - Billy Corgan Launches Wrestling Company
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan is expanding his empire - he's launched his own wrestling company in Chicago, Illinois.
The rocker will act as creative director of Resistance Pro, and develop "storylines" for fighting events.
He tells 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 it back to the glory days."
The company's first event will be held at Chicago's Excalibur Club on 25 November (11).
