On Monday’s Raw, WWE did an injury angle with Dean Ambrose, and unfortunately, the injury was legitimate, as WWE.com has confirmed that Ambrose suffered a high-grade triceps tendon injury, possibly a tear. They also confirmed that the injury required surgery, which took place on Tuesday night.

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

You can check out the injury angle in the video below, in case you missed it:

As mentioned on WWE.com, we should have an update on Ambrose at some point on Wednesday morning, where we’ll probably learn how long the ex-IC Champion will be out of action.
