[pullquote quote="Wrestling and rock-n-roll. Perfect combination." credit="Billy Corgan"]Billy Corgan stopped by XRT yesterday to chat about Oceania, the upcoming album from Smashing Pumpkins, but Terri Hemmert didn’t let him out of the studio before asking, “What’s this about you and wrestling?” Corgan explained “I’m the creative director of a local Chicago wrestling company called Resistance Pro.” Corgan described the wrestling as “very old school.”

With just under two weeks away from Oceania‘s release so if you’re looking for ways to pass the time, we’d suggest that you heed Corgan’s advice and check out Resistance Pro. “I know a lot of XRT’s audience will remember old school wrestling on channel 26 or 44; we’re kinda like that AWA style. A lot of families have been coming because it’s got a good feel.”

“We have a show next Friday, June 15 at Excalibur, and I’ll be there,” says Corgan. “Wrestling and rock-n-roll. Perfect combination.”
