BILLY CORGAN’S RESISTANCE PRO WRESTLING TO DEBUT CLOTHING LINE
Bump Drunk, a pro wrestling clothing store, has apparently struck a deal with Billy Corgan’s Resistance Pro Wrestling to create clothes and other accessories. A press release dealing the partnership also includes a quote from Corgan:
Chicago, IL – Locally owned professional wrestling company Resistance Pro, who made national headlines in their inaugural year as a fresh an innovative professional wrestling company, have announced today that they will be forming a strategic alliance with Los Angeles-based professional wrestling superstore BumpDrunk.com effective immediately. R-Pro is certainly no stranger to headlines as the company’s creative director is none other than Billy Corgan the founder and leader of the Smashing Pumpkins, one of the best-selling alternative rock bands of all time.
When asked about the partnership with BumpDrunk.com Corgan had this to say: “For far too long the wrestling world has been behind the curve when setting trends in fashion; often too willing to follow the edgy norm or let those outside the business appropriate the great symbols and icons of the past. With BumpDrunk you not only have a team who is in the business, but also creating a look and feel that will reach out to everyone”.
Company officials have met and agreed upon fresh new clothing packages of athletic wear and other accessories for both the Resistance Pro company as well as their top stars. Resistance Pro and Bump Drunk officials expect this merger to improve and widen both of their customer bases. In addition to BumpDrunk.com featuring Resistance Pro Merchandise prominently on their website, RPro live events will also stock the Resistance Pro merchandise designed by Bump Drunk.
