For starters, Billy Corgan established Resistance Pro Wrestling. Because he’s really into pro-wrestling. While he’s mostly behind the scenes, it looks like there will soon be cameras around to capture the goings-on there.

He revealed on a radio show that he’s just signed a deal with a “big reality show producer” who has “an incredible track record.”
According to ProWrestling.net, he said, “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.

“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.”

Could be interesting, if maybe some kind of I’m Still Here fakeout.. Have a look at a trailer for the league below.
