WWE Confirms Dean Ambrose Will Undergo Surgery

WWE Confirms Dean Ambrose Will Undergo Surgery

It seems like the story of pro wrestling can't be told without its fair share of heartbreak. It should be noted that the article notes the storyline as part of the injury, so it is not known thus far the legitimacy of the injury, or if it is part of a storyline.

According to's Mike Johnson, Ambrose's arm injury in kayfabe is being used to write him off due to a real "elbow issue".

If Ambrose is out for an extended period, it will cause WWE to have to change their holiday week Raw brand live event plans, many of which have been built around the Bar vs. Ambrose and Rollins inside a steel cage. Then Seth Rollins hit a suicide dive on The Bar but Dean Ambrose got in the way.

Dean Ambrose (Jonathan Good) is undergoing surgery for a potential triceps tear tonight.

WWE later released a statement on their website announcing that Ambrose suffered an injury to his right arm and that he had been taken away to a local medical facility for further evaluation.

WWE reported this evening that a MRI shows a likely high-grade triceps tendon injury.

Dean Ambrose underwent his surgery on Tuesday and it's now unknown exactly when his return to the ring is expected at this p.

This is bad timing for Dean Ambrose, but there is really no good time to get injured.
