Make pro say: 'Making a comeback' (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

'make' is the definition.
(forging is a kind of making)

'pro say making a comeback' is the wordplay.
'pro' becomes 'for' (I've seen this before).
'say' becomes 'eg'.
'making a comeback' says the letters should be written backwards.
'eg' in reverse letter order is 'ge'.
'for'+'ge'='FORGE'

(Other definitions for forge that I've seen before include "Blacksmith's workshop", "1 across", "Smith's workshop", "Ironworks", "Form by heating and hammering".)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
