Will we see Dean Ambrose anytime soon?

What's the story?

After we reported yesterday that Dean Ambrose was headed to Birmingham, Alabama for a medical check-up on his injury, the Lunatic Fringe's signing appearances this week have been cancelled.

In case you didn't know...

Dean Ambrose is a WWE Grand Slam Champion and would have undoubtedly had a huge part to play at WrestleMania, either as a singles star or as part of the reformed Shield, but The Lunatic Fringe tore his distal triceps tendon during a tag team match on Raw on the 18th of December while teaming up with Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan against the Bar and Samoa Joe.

Ambrose's triceps tendon was almost 50% torn from the bone and required urgent surgery. Dr Jeffrey Dugas ruled Ambrose out of action for nine months, but it was thought that Ambrose may recover sooner than planned and return earlier than scheduled.

The heart of the matter

Dean Ambrose was scheduled to make several appearances at the World of Wheels events this weekend, but those appearances have now been cancelled, as per PW Insider.

Ambrose was reportedly in Birmingham, Alabama yesterday to attend a medical check-up with WWE medical officials regarding his recovery from the tricep tear, but it is not yet known whether there is any connection between how the check-up went and the cancellations.

The former WWE Champion was initially ruled out until August-September after suffering the injury.

What's next?

Well, Dean Ambrose is actually one of WWE's most cryptic characters as he has no active social media account, so it'll be very interesting to see if we get an update from WWE on Ambrose's injury ahead of his return.

Author's take

Here's hoping that either there's no connection between these two events, or that Ambrose has been pulled from the events as there's a chance his rehabilitation has been brought forward. Dean Ambrose has become one of WWE's top stars in recent years, so I'd love to see the fan favourite make a return soon!
