When TNA first announced that Billy Corgan was joining their creative team, many in the company felt that it was a publicity stunt to get attention and it would be a figurehead position. However, during TNA’s last TV tapings, those who felt that way were very surprised at how much time and effort he was putting into the job.
Corgan spoke to many of the TNA talents at the TV tapings and many were surprised of his full knowledge of all the stories and all the characters.
Corgan is a long-time fan and was in talks to buy ECW at one point before it went out of business in early 2001.
