What kind of demographic is there for this? Who honestly gives a shit about behind the scenes wrestling stuff? How will this not fail? It just seems like a passion project that doesn't necessarily have a market.

Are there any SP fans that gives two shits about Billy and wrestling? I'm getting tired of it constantly being thrown in my face.

I don't take my hobbies and broadcast them all over the internet and the media. A former rock star shouldn't do it either.

Ah, remember when Corgan lived and breathed music, as opposed to having a million other projects on the go that he clearly finds more interesting

When nobody watches this, he'll go on a rant about how the TV industry has changed and "Nobody watches TV shows anymore. They'll just flip on their TV and move from channel to channel, 2 minutes at a time." Then, he'll create a new-fangled idea for a TV show that he'll market in a "groundbreaking" way, which essentially just means he'll put 2 minute clips on YouTube. When nobody watches that, he'll try to create a pay-per-view series of episodes, with more interactive content depending on what the watcher is willing to pay. Nothing will ever come of it, and then he'll admit 4 years down the line that it "wasn't the right time for people to be exposed to that." or some other round-about nonsense.

Very late last year, Billy Corgan revealed he would open a 1930s-style Chinese tea house in Highland Park. Originally he planned to open in March or April, but due to construction issues it's been pushed back. Now, Corgan aims to open Madame ZuZu's in about six weeks, just in time for the start of the Ravinia festival season.

a multifaceted assault to guarantee world domination - music, tv, cuisine and sports (okay, a stretch).

the local wrastlin' scene in Chicago is kinda fun. I was at the gig last year and was surprised how fun it was.

I can see what billy means about it having a rock n roll spirit.
