WWE has provided an update on Dean Ambrose’s condition after undergoing surgery on his arm earlier this week.
An angle was filmed o Monday’s RAW that involved The Bar and Samoa Joe attacking The Shield. The angle as reportedly written on short notice when it became clear that Ambrose’s lingering injury was serious and would likely require surgery.
According to WWE.com, Ambrose underwent successful surgery Tuesday night to repair a high-grade triceps tendon injury. The procedure was performed by Dr. Jeffrey Dugas in Birmingham, Alabama.
Dr. Dugas told WWE.com, “He tore some of the distal triceps tendon where it attaches to the forearm bone, called the olecranon. He basically tore about 50 percent of the triceps tendon away from the bone.”
Dugas continued, “So yesterday we repaired that back down to the bone where it tore off of. The surgery was very straightforward; we removed all of the extra bursal tissue — all of that extra swollen stuff around his elbow.”
Ambrose has already begun physical therapy, starting with light range-of-motion exercises.
As of this writing, there’s no word on how long he’ll be out of action. This type of procedure can have a recovery period of up to 6 months, which would keep Dean Ambrose on the sidelines through WrestleMania.
