Billy Corgan spoke with the AP about joining TNA creative, here are some highlights.
Corgan on why he joined TNA
I’m not here as celebrity. I’m here as a skilled person that brings a lot of experience to the table… I don’t need fame. I have plenty of fame. It’s really about the talent.
Corgan on TNA needing stars identified as only TNA stars
We need stars that are wholly identified with TNA only, and maybe telling the types of stories that maybe have a different edge to them so that people will identify them as TNA-type stories.
Corgan on needing to take advantage of the social media atmosphere
If something gets hot and on a roll, people will talk. We have to build a vehicle that will continually provide that opportunity and take advantage of the social media atmosphere. We will win the day if we’re able to move quickly and in a way nobody’s ever tried in the wrestling business.
on underestimating wrestling fans:
The biggest mistake you can make in entertainment is to think you’re audience isn’t sophisticated
on his focus:
It wouldn’t surprise me if, down the road, my greater focus is the wrestling product. I’ve had an incredible music career. I’m also looking for different challenges.
