– Rock Cellar Magazine has a lengthy interview with Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins, who discussed his love of pro wrestling and his involvement with the Resistance Pro wrestling organization. During the interview, Corgan discussed longtime indy stars like CM Punk and Daniel Bryan becoming superstars.

“There’s sort of an evolutionary spirit where, just when you think that it can’t change or wrestling won’t change, somebody comes along and kind of changes the rules on their own,” said Corgan. “Look at the way CM Punk has gotten over. He’s gotten over with a different kind of attitude. His rebelliousness is that of a straight-edge individual. I mean, if Stone Cold was a beer drinking hell raiser, then Punk is the opposite. He wants to sit there and sip his Pepsi (laughs). And you know, it’s funny because we’re talking about two guys from two different eras who have gotten over in completely different ways. Yet, at the end of the day, they are some reflection of our culture.”

It’s a great read, you can check out the full interview by clicking here.
