Former ECW World Heavyweight Champion Jerry Lynn has set March 23, 2013 as his official retirement date from professional wrestling, which marks as his 25th anniversary in the profession. His final match will take place in his home city of Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he broke in under Brad Rheighans. His final match in the Northeast will take place February 9, 2013 in Metuchen, New Jersey, as he faces ECW rival Lance Storm at a Pro Wrestling Syndicate event.
We also noted yesterday that Ring of Honor confirmed that Jerry Lynn will face Mike Bennett at the ROH Final Battle iPPV on December 16th from the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. This will be Lynn’s last match for Ring of Honor before his retirement.
