Dean Ambrose recently suffered an injury to his right arm, and Monday night on Raw, WWE had Samoa Joe, Cesaro and Sheamus assault Ambrose as a way to write the injury into the storylines.

WWE officially announced the injury after Raw, and now is reporting that Ambrose may have torn tendon in his triceps, and he’s set to undergo surgery tonight.

“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 “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.”

At this point there won’t be any update on how long Ambrose is expected to be out of action until the surgery is performed, but it doesn’t sound good.

Recovery time following surgery for a triceps tendon injury can typically take anywhere from four to six months which could potentially cause Dean Ambrose to miss WrestleMania next year.

But as Dr. Chris Amann noted, it’s not confirmed at this point that he has indeed torn a tendon in his triceps, so stay tuned for updates.
