Update On Dean Ambrose’s Surgery And Recovery Time

Good news regarding Dean Ambrose and his injured right arm. Dean underwent surgery last night in Birmingham, Alabama, and WWE.com reports it was a success.

Dr Jeffrey Dugas described the approximately 40-minute procedure like this:

“He tore some of the distal triceps tendons where it attaches to the forearm bone, called the olecranon. 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.”

While this is all good news, there is no definitive timeline for Dean Ambrose’s return as of yet as Injuries like this are tricky. Dean has already begun light rehab, and other athletes who have undergone surgeries like Dean have returned to competition within three to nine months, So even if Dean is a Cena level fast healer, it looks like he will be missing Wrestlemania this year, unfortunately!
