Looking forward to him wearing this during concerts and having it cause horrific feedback every time his guitar brushes against it

Some of us buy action figures, comics, or overpriced record reissues to fill the void in our lives. Billy thinks a little bigger.

Billy's and his brother were wrestling fans growing up. It's something they are able to enjoy together, which is pretty cool.

"Billy Corgan’s NWA Purchase Possibly in Jeopardy":

– Billy Corgan’s plan to buy the National Wrestling Alliance may have a serious bump in the road. PWInsider reports that the deal is “in jeopardy” according to multiple sources due to issues surrounding the transfer of the promotion’s existing copyrights and trademarks.

According to the site, the copyright and trademarks on the brand name lapsed last year. Bruce Tharpe’s International Wrestling Corp, LLC, which bought the NWA in 2012, re-applied for the trademarks on March 30th. The application has yet to be officially approved, meaning that it isn’t possible for them to be transferred to Corgan. Corgan has been in the process of buying the company from Tharpe including the name, rights and trademarks along with as the NWA Championship title belt, Tharpe’s stake in the NWA on Demand VOD service and licensing of the Paul Boesch wrestling library.

If the deal somehow does not go through, the future of the NWA is unknown although Tharpe would very possible continue the On Demand service as well as licensing the NWA brand name out to indy promoters. Corgan and Dave Lagana have been seeking to establish relationships with promotions which have licensed the NWA name.

BILLY CORGAN finally buying the NWA:

https://411mania.com/wrestling/billy...ownership-nwa/

"WRESTLING / NEWS
Billy Corgan Set to Assume Ownership of NWA in October

September 24, 2017 | Posted by Jeffrey Harris

– As previously reported, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan had made a deal to purchase the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) and assume ownership. PWInsider has a new report out today on the future of NWA, the transition of ownership from Bruce Tharpe to Corgan, and when Corgan will take over.

According to the report, the new era under Corgan is slated to start on October 1. All the member promotions who had licenses to use the NWA initials and branding under previous owner Bruce Tharpe will expire the day before on September 30, which is this upcoming Saturday. Moving forward, the future of the NWA will be based on the new leadership of Corgan and Dave Lagana.

Additionally, the NWA On Demand video streaming service will be shut down during the transition. This is a result of Corgan purchasing Tharpe’s interest in the Paul Boesch Houston territory library. The ownership of said library will reportedly remain with the Boesch family, but Corgan will have the ability to “control” the library moving forward. ..."
