Billy Corgan and his wrestlers reach out to veterans

SHARE Billy Corgan and his wrestlers reach out to veterans

Billy Corgan’s love of wrestling, led him to help start Resistance Pro Wrestling, the independent wrestling league in Chicago.

While rock star Billy Corgan’s wrestling crew is hosting a show on the Near West Side Friday — and inviting all veterans to attend for free — the Smashing Pumpkins icon realizes not all vets who want to go can make it.

So…Corgan and his wrestling team are going to show up at the Jesse Brown Veterans Administration Hospital at 11:30 a.m. Friday to make a special visit.

Nice move Billy!
