It's been a few months since Smashing Pumpkins vocalist Billy Corgan failed to execute a hostile takeover of TNA Wrestling, with TNA investor Anthem Sports & Entertainment taking over the company instead. It looks like Corgan is ready to get back into the pro wrestling game, however, as Corgan has reportedly agreed to purchase the NWA. Founded in 198 and once the national glue that held the wrestling territory system together, the NWA has been supplanted in recent decades and now exists primarily as a licensor of its name and branding to independent promotions. It's unclear what Corgan will attempt to do with the company, but his involvement with TNA last year was viewed favorably so many fans and wrestlers will likely look forward to seeing what Corgan will do with it.

The news was reported by PWInsider on their subscription service, but comes to us via 411 Wrestling, which is free.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
