As noted, following the on-air attack by Samoa Joe on WWE RAW, it was reported that Ambrose was dealing with a legitimate shoulder injury and flew to Birmingham, Alabama to have the injury diagnosed.
Following a reported visit with renowned surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Dugas, WWE.com posted the following update on Dean Ambrose:
DEC. 19 UPDATE: After sustaining an injury to his right arm last night during Raw, Dean Ambrose is currently undergoing further examination by noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Dugas, WWE.com can confirm.
“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,” WWE Senior Ringside Physician Dr. Chris Amann told WWE.com. “That surgery will be happening later this evening, and we should have some further updates either later tonight or tomorrow morning as to what the findings were, what the structures that were damaged were, and also a timeline for recovery.”
If Ambrose did in fact suffer a full tear, that would put him out of action for up to six months. That would mean he would definitely miss out on WrestleMania next year. We’ll keep you updated.
