- Brett Buchanan of AlternativeNation.net reports that Smashing Pumpkins frontman and Resistance Pro Wrestling owner Billy Corgan is the potential TNA buyer. Buchanan wrote the following this weekend:
“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.”
In an update, former ECW Original and WWE employee Lou D’Angeli, who is a longtime friend of Corgan’s, wrote the following on Twitter last night:
“Is @billy set on buying @IMPACTWRESTLING??? I know he is pretty serious in at least partial, if not, majority ownership. #TNA”
