Exclusive: Major Update On Billy Corgan’s Rumored Purchase of TNA Wrestling

Published On November 2, 2013 | By Brett Buchanan | 90's Rock, Featured, Grunge Report, Smashing Pumpkins

I have heard from a second hand source who is close to a key figure in the rumored TNA Wrestling sales discussions who has verified that Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan is far along in his talks to purchase the company. This source went as far to say that he believes it is a “done deal” that Corgan will buy TNA, though the source didn’t know what percentage Corgan will be purchasing or the specifics of the deal. The source also says that Corgan has recently made a connection to somebody very wealthy, though it is not known if this party would have anything to do with the deal. Obviously with professional wrestling, you never know if a deal will actually go through until the ink is dry. Eric Bischoff and Fusient Media Ventures announced their purchase of WCW in early 2001 before TNT and TBS canceled WCW programming, leading to the deal falling apart and Vince McMahon purchasing WCW.

TNA Wrestling’s weekly show ‘Impact Wrestling’ airs on Thursday nights on SpikeTV and features stars like Kurt Angle, Sting, Jeff Hardy, and AJ Styles.

    Me and the other band members in my band have talking, and we were originally thinking about ripping-off Puddle of Mudd. We now have been thinking about completely stealing the song structures from these bands’ classic hits.

    You see, we want to be that band saves rock ‘n’ roll. We want to bring the genre out of its grave. We want to be the next Beatles, Led Zeppelin, or Nirvana. And to do that, we gotta be BIG. But to do that, we got to go HUGE.

    We feel if we steal these song structures, completely change the lyrics, and release and promote the hell out of them as singles, make big videos, we could be the biggest band in the world.

    Here are the songs we want to rip-off:

    1. With Or Without You – U2
    2. Even Flow – Pearl Jam
    3. All Star – Smash Mouth
    4. Cherub Rock – The Smashing Pumpkins
    5. Blurry – Nirvana
    6. On a Plain – Nirvana

      The bands you listed didn’t get to be huge bands by ripping off others’ music. If you want to be the band that saves rock and roll, then write your own music instead of stealing what other bands have done.
