What’s the story?

As noted by the WWE, Dean Ambrose will be out of action owing to an arm injury.

Apparently, the recovery timetable for the injury he’s suffered is about 6 months, which alludes that Ambrose could potentially miss Wrestlemania next year.

In case you didn’t know…

Dean Ambrose was featured in a segment on this week’s RAW, wherein The Bar and Samoa Joe attacked him; targeting his arm in particular.

The vast majority of professional wrestling industry insiders believe that the segment came to fruition in order to serve as a cover-up for a legitimate injury he’d been dealing with over the past few days.

The heart of the matter

The WWE has addressed Dean Ambrose’s triceps injury on its official Twitter page, stating that an MRI has revealed Dean Ambrose to be suffering from a high-grade triceps tendon injury—something ‘The Lunatic Fringe’ is undergoing surgical exploration for, and will likely have it surgically repaired.

Furthermore, although the WWE hasn’t emphasized that Ambrose may miss Wrestlemania 34—which takes place in April of next year—the promotion has hinted towards the same.

One ought to note that a triceps injury takes a considerable amount of time to heal—with cases such as Ambrose’s “high-grade triceps tendon injury” taking around 6 months to properly heal before the individual can resume sporting competition.

What’s next?

Dean Ambrose is presently undergoing the rehabilitation process, and will likely have surgery very soon. Generally, in the case of a serious triceps injury, an individual is advised against resuming strenuous exercise and Ambrose may have to undergo a prep period, after recovery, before returning to the ring—as do most other pro-wrestlers returning from an injury hiatus. Sportskeeda will keep fans updated on the Shield member’s recovery as and when the story develops.

Besides, the WWE had initially planned The Shield vs. Samoa Joe & The Bar as a marquee matchup for a few of its upcoming RAW house shows--something which will have to be altered now that Shield member Ambrose is out of the equation.

Author’s take

Dean Ambrose is one of the most underrated talents in the sport today.

Triceps injuries are quite tricky when it comes to fully recovering from them. Here’s hoping Ambrose makes a safe and speedy recovery.
