- Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins joined Mister Saint Laurent on MLW Radio this week to discuss his new wrestling company, Resistance Pro, as well as his upcoming album, Oceania. He revealed that he intends to launch a reality TV show about what it’s like running a wrestling organization.

“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.”

“We believe that wrestling is fascinating on many many levels. Socially, politically, even economically. The struggles independent wrestlers go through to try to find work. Those are real struggles that anybody can identify with. 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 to manufacture reality. There’s plenty of it to go around.”

The full interview is available right now on and includes Corgan’s thoughts on Harry Smith potentially returning to WWE, industry expectations for his new album and much more. The new Smashing Pumpkins album, Oceania, will be available in stores and online starting June 19.

- CM Punk revealed that WWE are close to unveiling the new WWE Championship belt design, during a press session at the Wizard World Comic Con in Philadelphia, last Saturday. According to Punk the new belt is about 20 pounds heavier than the current spinner belt.

As previously reported, the belt has been waiting in the wings for months, but the company were reluctant to debut it because the spinner does so well in replica merchandise sales.

- The daughter of WWE referee Scott Armstrong has been given a tryout match at FCW this week. Kayla Armstrong noted on Twitter:

“At the airport getting ready to fly to Tampa for my tryout! I’m nervous and excited about finally doing this all on my own! It’s all me now!”
