Former WWE Champion Dean Ambrose is slated to make his return to in-ring action for the WWE soon.
Mike Johnson of PWinsider.com is reporting that Ambrose is expected to return to WWE action within the next month and that he will be backstage at the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view event on Sunday, August 19, 2018 in Brooklyn, New York at the Barclays Center. The belief is that he should return to TV shortly after the event.
Ambrose has been out of action since late 2017 when he underwent surgery to repair a high-grade triceps tendon. The surgery took place in December, but the arm injury reportedly took place at the Tables, Ladders, and Chairs pay-per-view event back on October 22nd.
At TLC, Ambrose took a bump on a table that didn’t break and following the match, his right arm immediately swelled up. While Ambrose didn’t take any time off and continued to work through the pain, things got worse over time.
WWE originally stated Ambrose would be out nine months at the time of his surgery been announced.
As noted, Ambrose has been spotted regularly in Birmingham, Alabama rehabbing the injury and later at the WWE Performance Center in June in advance of his return.
