dean ambrose medical update injury surgery elbow arm wwe raw

WWE has announced that Dean Ambrose will be going under the knife tonight after recently hurting his right elbow, but it’s unclear how severe the injury is at this point.

Senior Ringside Physician Dr. Chris Amann told WWE.com, “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.”

Adding, “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.”

According to The Wrestling Observer, the elbow issue occurred prior to Raw and the angle that played out last night was done in an effort to cover for the actual injury.
