TNA Entertainment announced today that Billy Corgan, founder of The Smashing Pumpkins, will be joining TNA Wrestling as Senior Producer and a member of the Creative and Talent Development team. Corgan is a longtime aficionado of professional wrestling and is as excited to join the TNA Wrestling program as they are to have him. He will be responsible for developing characters and writing riveting storylines to capture the audience, which he has already proven he can do with his 30+ years of performing experience, and producing TNA television tapings. Corgan’s position is effective immediately, and his work can be seen on Friday nights at 9/8c on Destination America during TNA’s leading program Impact Wrestling.

“Saying I’m humbled and honored by this opportunity to be part of TNA, a world-class wrestling organization, is an understatement and a dream come true,” said Corgan in a press release. “What’s great is the entire TNA organization stands in full support of my music life with the Smashing Pumpkins. In return, I’m fully committed to using my 30 years of entertainment experience, along with my deep-rooted passion for pro wrestling, to take on the thrilling challenge of creatively contributing to Impact Wrestling, finding and developing new talent, and working eye-to-eye with the best-of-the-best. For as cultures currently evolve at great speed, so must pro wrestling meet and supersede such expectations to thrive.”

Corgan also took to Twitter to clarify his involvement:
