• Raw Star Undergoes Surgery, Most Probably Missing WrestleMania 34
WWE posted the following:
Dean Ambrose undergoes successful surgery
“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.”
While nothing is confirmed as of now, a high-grade triceps tear might put Ambrose out of action for about 6 months, which would mean he’ll miss WrestleMania 34. Ambrose would join former WWE Champion Jeff Hardy, Raw Superstar Big Cass and Cruiserweight wrestler Noam Dar as the wrestlers who’ll most probably miss WrestleMania 34 due to injury.
Speaking of Ambrose, he worked the WrestleMania 33 Kickoff Show earlier this year and successfully defended his Intercontinental Championship against Baron Corbin.
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).
