ROH to run angle based on The Wrestler

Lynn then cut a promo on McGuinness, saying that he was wrong and was discussing a business that didn't exist anymore. The climax of the film The Wrestler was filmed at an ROH event, and in a recent ROH newswire, they reported the following: "Jerry Lynn was in attendance at a private ROH screening recently, and said to be very emotional about his career and its similarities to the career of Rourke's Randy 'the Ram' Robinson." The plan looks to be to book Lynn as the underdog veteran, who doubts himself, but wants one more shot at glory.
Kind of had a feeling this was where they were going. I like Lynn (even though I'll admit I've seen none of his return matches), so I'm interested in where this goes.
