Don’t think that Billy Corgan doesn’t have much else to do these days. He’s working on not one, but two new Smashing Pumpkins albums (minus most of the original Pumpkins of course), but he’s also got his own amateur wrestling league called Resistance Pro. And now, it looks like AMC is ready to develop an unscripted reality show about Corgan and his wrestling dreams. If Andy Kaufman is really just in hiding and not actually deceased, now would be the perfect time for him to come out.

Fuck you… Fred will always be cool.
