Taking a cue from the alt-rock wave he rode in the '90s, he'll run the Resistance Pro league like a record label, nurturing indie wrestling talent into platinum superstars. He's already built an impressive roster of hipster indie wrestling darlings, like the SHEIK (widely regarded as the trailblazing Hüsker Dü of underground wrestling) and COLT CABANA (the Bleach-era Nirvana of the ring).
Although it would be exceedingly easy for Corgan to parlay his still-enormous musical prestige into wrestling fortune, he's taking the high road. "If I had to artificially prime the audience because of my musical life, that's sad." Instead, it's absolutely not sad at all: "This is going to succeed on its own ideas, not because I jumped the shark." Definitely, dude.
