WWE News: Dean Ambrose undergoes surgery
What's the story
It seems like the story of pro wrestling can't be told without its fair share of heartbreak. The news of Dean Ambrose's arm injury might have seemed like part of the story to some fans, but unfortunately, it is all too real. Dr Chris Amann opened up to WWE.com about the extent of The Lunatic Fringe's injuries and it doesn't sound good for Dean Ambrose at the present moment. Because "wait and see" kind of situations are seldom very good.
In case you didn't know
Everything seemed to be going well and good for Dean Ambrose this week on Raw as he teamed with Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan to take on The Bar and Samoa Joe. Then Seth Rollins hit a suicide dive on The Bar but Dean Ambrose got in the way.
It looked like Ambrose fell on his arm and after that, a backstage segment was filmed to really sell his injury as Samoa Joe hit smashed his arm with a piece of rolling production equipment. Ambrose could have been injured beforehand and gutted through the match, but regardless of when the injury took place, Ambrose's arm was still hurt.
Heart of the matter...
It looks like Ambrose suffered a possible tear and he underwent surgery to investigate a problem and a solution.
WWE's resident physician Dr Chris Amann told WWE.com
"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."
Dean Ambrose underwent his surgery on Tuesday and it's currently unknown exactly when his return to the ring is expected at this p. But if he requires any kind of considerable recovery time, then he could likely miss WrestleMania 34.
This is awful timing for Dean Ambrose, but there is really no good time to get injured. But in the middle of The Shield's return run is certainly not an ideal moment for The Lunatic Fringe to be put on the injured list.
Hopefully, Ambrose will be able to return sooner than later but only time will tell at this point.
