Even though at this point most of you are well aware of the shocking news that the National Wrestling Alliance has been sold. The former front man of the Smashing Pumpkins Billy Corgan has finally found his way into the wrestling business as the new owner of the NWA. For almost 20 years rumors have been around about Corgan joining the wrestling business as he has always been a very big fan of the profession. Though this isn't his first jump into the business it is a lot bigger then his first venture.
Billy began his tenure in wrestling when he along with two partners founded the wrestling company known as Resistance Pro-Wrestling. Though at this point RPW seems like a thing of the past and that the company didn't really branch out of it's home state of Chicago it really only was small glimpse of what Corgan can do in the wrestling business.
Last year, the never ending circus act that was TNA Wrestling became extremely complicated specifically last fall. I believe it was back in late 2015 when Corgan would join TNA Wrestling as a management member of the team and complications were there from the start as we would find out when Corgan filed a suit against Dixie following his departure from TNA. According to, former Impact Wrestling stars if Corgan had been able to buy the company then the company would be a lot better position now then it is in. Just a little small taste what Billy brought to the table in TNA was connection in the music industry and being instrumental in the development of the most successful gimmick in TNA at the time.
Now if your one to ask what we can expect from Corgan as the new owner of the NWA, well I can't answer that question because I'm not sure. But what I can say is that this is a good thing, because we never really got to see what Billy could bring to the table on his own and it's pretty clear that either way this will only make the National Wrestling Alliance stronger.
