From the WWE Rumor Mill: Update on Dean Ambrose's in-ring comeback
When will the former WWE Champion return to the ring?
What’s the story?
Apparently, Ambrose continues his physical rehabilitation program ahead of his in-ring comeback—further details on which have also been noted.
In case you didn’t know…
The Lunatic Fringe suffered a triceps injury in December of last year.
Ambrose’s injury resulted in several notable changes in the WWE’s storylines, including the disbanding of The Shield; as Ambrose’s stable-mates, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, once again went their separate ways.
Additionally, the storylines regarding Ambrose’s role as a singles competitor were also altered owing to the injury.
The heart of the matter
Dean Ambrose suffered a torn triceps injury last December and has been on the shelf ever since—missing out on WrestleMania 34 as well as several other notable WWE events.
The vast majority of professional wrestling experts believe that Ambrose is likely to miss out on no less than nine months of in-ring action due to the injury.
It’s now being reported that Ambrose was spotted late last week in Birmingham, Alabama—consulting with the WWE’s doctors in the city.
Contrary to rumours of Ambrose returning to the ring immediately after Wrestlemania 34, the belief is that he’s yet to complete rehabbing his triceps injury.
Fans can expect Ambrose to return in August or September of this year.
Experts note that despite the long hiatus, Ambrose is likely to once again be featured prominently on WWE programming upon his return.
Ambrose is perhaps one of the toughest individuals to have ever stepped foot inside a professional wrestling ring.
Ambrose is never afraid to mix it up with the biggest, baddest WWE Superstars, nor is he wary of executing high-risk, high-reward manoeuvres.
Sportskeeda wishes “The Lunatic Fringe” Dean Ambrose a safe & speedy recovery.
