Dean Ambrose is recovering following surgery on his triceps.
He underwent a 40-minute surgery Tuesday night in Birmingham, Alabama. WWE.com gave details on what went down:
“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.”
On the Monday Fightful.com post-Raw podcast, Sean Ross Sapp reported that Dean Ambrose came into television that day injured. The show was re-written to incorporate Ambrose's injury. He appeared to hurt the elbow initially towards the end of the match, as it led to the finish where a distracted Rollins walked into a big boot to give the win to Samoa Joe and The Bar.
Later, as Ambrose was being tended to by medical officials backstage, The Bar and Samoa Joe jumped Rollins and Ambrose backstage. Samoa Joe then grabbed a box and slammed it on Ambrose's bad arm, sending him to a local medical facility.
There is no current timetable on a Ambrose return. If Ambrose is out for a long period of time, it would be another setback to the Shield reunion. They were set to reunite in October for the TLC event, but Roman Reigns came down with a case of the mumps. Reigns eventually recovered and did team with the Shield, but in recent weeks had focused on individual feuds.
