It was announced on this show that Ambrose would be in the corner of Seth Rollins for his Intercontinental Title match against champion Dolph Ziggler, who will have Drew McIntyre in his corner, at SummerSlam this Sunday.
After RAW went off the air, Dean Ambrose returned to action in an 8-man tag team match. Ambrose and Seth Rollins teamed with Braun Strowman and Balor against the team of Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Kevin Owens and Baron Corbin. You can see video of the match here.
Dean Ambrose Returns From Injury
Ambrose has been out of action since late 2017 when he underwent surgery to repair a high-grade triceps tendon. The surgery took place in December, but the arm injury reportedly took place at the Tables, Ladders, and Chairs pay-per-view event back on October 22nd. At TLC, Ambrose took a bump on a table that didn’t break. Following the match, his right arm immediately swelled up. While Ambrose didn’t take any time off and continued to work through the pain, things got worse over time.
WWE originally stated Ambrose would be out nine months at the time of his surgery been announced. Since then, Ambrose had been spotted regularly in Birmingham, Alabama rehabbing the injury and later at the WWE Performance Center in June in advance of his return.
