    Singer Billy Corgan is all about pro wrestling these days.

    There'll be more than a little wrestling going on Black Friday but it's not all in the name of finding a great deal.

    Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan is hosting a professional wrestling bill November 25th at Excalibur nightclub.

    It's the latest event for Corgan, who recently launched Resistance Pro, a wrestling promotions company.

    Twenty-two wrestlers will grapple for honors at the event.

    Corgan is also using the event to promote concussion-awareness programs to educate young wrestlers and adults about the warning signs and dangers of concussions.

    Each wrestler will be screened before and after the event by officials from Rush University Medical Center's Sports Concussion Clinic.

    Tickets are $20 and available online or at the door.
