Injury News: Dean Ambrose Update, Riddick Moss Injured
Dean Ambrose Update
Roman Reigns was interviewed by GiveMeSport in the UK today and said that Dean Ambrose has moved to Birmingham, Alabama full time to rehab his torn triceps. Ambrose underwent surgery in December and WWE said at that time that he would be out for approximately nine months, which would mean that he still has about four months to go and would return some time after SummerSlam.
Seth Rollins said said last month that Ambrose could even be back by “summer time, maybe late spring.”
Ambrose underwent the surgery in Birmingham and according to Reigns, he’s close to WWE’s doctors there and is “rehabbing like a mad man.”

Riddick Moss Injured
Riddick Moss recently suffered a torn achilles tendon, according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio. He’s expected to be out for about eight months.
His former NXT tag team partner, Tino Sabbatelli also was injured a couple of weeks ago and just underwent surgery for a torn pectoral muscle. He’s also expected to be out for about eight months.
Both men were doing a tag team breakup angle and had just broken up and were set to feud with each other before their injuries, so the timing is obviously terrible for both.
