Dean Ambrose Suffers Triceps Injury; Will Undergo Surgery

— Even though it appeared to be an injury for storyline purposes on last night’s Raw, Dean Ambrose is in fact dealing with a legit elbow injury, the severity of which is unknown at this time. Ambrose is reportedly going to head to Birmingham on Tuesday to have the injury evaluated after which it will likely be determined how long he will be out of action.

— Not much is known either on how Ambrose initially suffered the injury, but he came to Raw on Monday hurt and his segment had to be re-written to account for it. The company then ran the angle where it looked like Ambrose’s arm was hurt as part of the storyline and they even posted an article on their website with the following note:

Ambrose was taken to a nearby medical facility for X-rays and evaluation, and more details on his condition should be available tomorrow.

— updated their story on Dean Ambrose’s arm injury earlier today, stating the following:

“An MRI has shown suspicion for a high-grade triceps tendon injury, possibly a tear, so he is undergoing surgical exploration and most likely surgical repair of the torn triceps tendon,” WWE’s Dr. Chris Amann told the website “That surgery will be happening later this evening, and we should have some further updates either later tonight or tomorrow morning as to what the findings were, what the structures that were damaged were, and also a timeline for recovery.”


— While WWE has not given a timetable for his return, surgery for a triceps injury involving a torn tendon will usually sideline an athlete for several months, so unless there is good news during the surgery (such as the tendon was not actually torn), Ambrose is not likely to be back until well into 2018.
