The Associated Press is featuring an interview with Smashing Pumpkins lead singer Billy Corgan about his involvement as a wrestling promoter for his new Resistance Pro promotion. The article notes that he recently pitched the promotion to Stephanie McMahon at WWE as a possible developmental territory.
“We want to be able to expand to where we’re a national brand and can run pretty much anywhere in the country. My name and my access to certain things get help get us there, but it doesn’t mean we’re ready for that. We’re better off being a little bit more conservative. I think it would be to our credit to get people to the top level. I think it does a disservice to our talent to not prepare them for the next level.”
