WWE have provided a lengthy update via their official website on Dean Ambrose having successful surgery following what transpired this past week on ‘Raw.’

According to the website, Ambrose had a 40 minute procedure to repair his distal triceps tendon. The surgery was very straightforward and the former WWE Raw Tag Team Champion has already started physical therapy.

Here is the statement from WWE on the surgery:

“Dean Ambrose underwent successful surgery Tuesday night to repair a high-grade triceps tendon injury, WWE.com can confirm.

The 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, and is expecting to leave Birmingham later today.”

At this time it is unknown the length of time Ambrose will be out of action for. There are reports going around that he could be out past ‘WrestleMania 34’ but we cannot confirm at this time if this is the case. It is very possible that this is true, though.

Wrestling Rumors will update you if any new information does come out on the status of the former WWE Champion.
