Various: Dean Ambrose Status, Bruno Sammartino Documentary, Indies

Dean Ambrose Injury Status Update

Seth Rollins said during a recent episode of “Kfm Mornings with Darren, Sherlin, and Sibs” that Dean Ambrose is currently expected to return to WWE during this summer. Ambrose has been away from WWE television since last December due to suffering an elbow injury. Following surgery, his rehab time was estimated to require anywhere between 2-3 months to 9 months.

“[Dean] Ambrose is injured, yes. I don’t know the whereabouts or the details of his injury. He had some pretty extensive triceps surgery earlier this year, so, he’s definitely still on the mend and rehabbing. But he’ll be back and better than ever, you wait, Summer time, maybe late Spring. Somewhere in there I think, whenever that wily guy gets back to normal.”
