Rolling Stone Films recently published a short documentary focusing on TNA creative team member Billy Corgan titled, “Billy Corgan: Babyfaced Heel.” The following excerpt is below, click here for the entire article.
“Corgan is taking fans behind the scenes at TNA – and talking about his lifelong love of pro wrestling – in Rolling Stone Films’ Billy Corgan: Babyfaced Heel. From a childhood spent watching Dick the Bruiser on Chicago TV to stepping inside the ring with Steve Corino and Justin Credible in ECW, Corgan has been steeped in the history of the sport, and now at TNA, he’s helping shape its future. All while remaining true to the spirit that has thrilled him throughout his life.”
“In the early years of the Smashing Pumpkins, I saw that I was going to be treated as an outsider. So rather than play along, which is what you’re supposed to do, I decided to play heel, in wrestling parlance, and have fun with it,” he says. “I think I represent the true American value, which is the independent spirit…if that makes me a heel in modern America, I’m fine to be a heel. I’d rather be that heel than the babyface who goes along to get along.”
