Longtime wrestling fan and Smashing Pumpkins frontman, Billy Corgan, is ready to expand the promotional horizons for his Resistance Pro Wrestling Company.

The musician, while giving an interview on MLW Radio, revealed that he has plans to launch a reality TV series based on his life trying to run a wrestling organization. Corgan explained, “I’m doing a lot of behind the scenes stuff. We’re trying to get a reality show made. We just signed a deal with a big reality show producer, a guy with an incredible track record. We’re in good hands.”

Corgan says the world of wrestling is interesting enough as it is, but he feels a look into the off-camera life of struggling independent wrestlers would be a fascinating watch for viewers. “Those are real struggles,” says Corgan. “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 manufacture reality. There’s plenty of it to around.”

Corgan’s full interview, which also includes talk about the Smashing Pumpkins’ ‘Oceania‘ album, can be heard here. The disc is due June 19.
