As we all know by now, the Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan has a strong affinity for wrestling. He loaned the song "Doomsday Clock" to indie wrestling circuit Ring of Honor to promote a pay-per-view event, and he once smashed a guitar over somebody's head on the old ECW show. His latest rub to the wrestling world has come in a remixed video of the band's Zeitgeist single "Tarantula," which plugs TNA Wrestling's upcoming "Bound For Glory" event outside Corgan's hometown of Chicago. All the all-stars of TNA (short for Total Non-Stop Action) make an appearance in the video, including Samoa Joe, Kurt Angle, Sting and AJ Styles. Check out the muscled-up version of "Tarantula" above. TNA's "Bound For Glory" airs on pay-per-view on October 12th.
