Dean Ambrose (a/k/a Jonathan Good) underwent surgery to repair a high-grade triceps tendon injury on Tuesday in Birmingham, Alabama. However, a WWE website story offered no specifics on how long Ambrose will be sidelined.
“He tore some of the distal triceps tendon where it attaches to the forearm bone, called the olecranon,” surgeon Jeffrey 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.”
Powell’s POV: Ambrose is expected to leave Birmingham later today. I assume he will be sidelined for several months based on what I’ve read about athletes who have undergone similar procedures. As previously noted, WWE removed Ambrose from their live events page advertising for upcoming events.
