Samoa Joe had an awkward moment with Renee Young recently.
It’s been well documented that WWE has lost one of their top talents for a few months.
That star is former WWE Champion Dean Ambrose, who is clearly the workhorse for the sports entertainment company right now. While competing under the WWE banner, he has a reputation for doing the hard yards and almost never missing a single event.
As noted, Dean Ambrose underwent successful surgery to repair a high-grade triceps tendon injury last week.
In regards to Ambrose’s WWE return, PWInsider indicated that he could only be out of action for 2 to 3 months instead.
Ambrose’s arm injury reportedly took place at the Tables, Ladders and Chairs pay-per-view event back on October 22nd. During that pay-per-view, Ambrose took a bump on a table that didn’t break.
Following the match, his right arm immediately swelled up. While Ambrose didn’t take any time off and continued to work through the pain, things got worse over the past week.
When he got to Raw last Monday, the decision was made to re-write the show to cover for his injury so he could undergo surgery.
WWE is claiming that Ambrose could be out for more like 9 months. WWE issued the following:
Following Dean Ambrose’s successful surgery last Tuesday night to repair a high-grade triceps tendon injury, Michael Cole took a moment during the Dec. 25 episode of Raw to confirm that The Lunatic Fringe will be out of action for approximately nine months.
Ambrose’s successful 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.
As seen on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw in Rosemont, IL at the Allstate Arena on the USA Network, Joe cut a promo in a segment with Young, who is Ambrose’s wife and it got weird to say the least as seen here.
