As we noted before, Raw Superstar Dean Ambrose recently underwent a successful surgery to repair a high-grade triceps tendon injury.
Below is what WWE posted about this:
“Dean Ambrose underwent successful surgery Tuesday night to repair a high-grade triceps tendon injury, WWE.com can confirm. The procedure was performed by Dr. Jeffrey Dugas in Birmingham, Ala., and took around 40 minutes.
“He tore some of the distal triceps tendon where it attaches to the forearm bone, called the olecranon,” Dr. Dugas told WWE.com. “He basically tore about 50 percent of the triceps tendon away from the bone. So yesterday we repaired that back down to the bone where it tore off of. The surgery was very straightforward; we removed all of the extra bursal tissue — all of that extra swollen stuff around his elbow.”
Dugas added that Ambrose has begun physical therapy, starting with light range-of-motion exercises, and is expecting to leave Birmingham later today.”
At first it looked like Ambrose was going to be out of action for about 6 months and miss WrestleMania 34 as of result, but that’s not the case anymore. He’s now expected to be out of action for 2-3 months, which would mean he’d return in-time for WrestleMania 34.
Speaking of Ambrose, he suffered the injury at TLC 2017 PPV in a botched spot when he was supposed to go through a table, but the table didn’t break.
Dean’s arm got swollen after this, but he didn’t take any time off and worked through the pain. However, things got worse last week and then this week’s Raw was re-written to write Ambrose off WWE programming.
Jason Jordan will be replacing Ambrose at WWE Live Events by teaming with Seth Rollins to face Raw Tag Team Champions The Bar (Sheamus & Cesaro).
