Dean Ambrose was a member of The Shield and running strong as he and Seth Rollins headed into the Royal Rumble with big things on the way. But it turns out WWE really did have to change up some big plans when Ambrose went out of action due to a torn triceps and now he could be out up to nine months.
Bryan Alvarez commented on the situation during Wrestling Observer Live where he discussed exactly what Dean Ambrose’s injury meant for WWE’s creative process.
“God bless the guy, he’s worked more dates in the entire company for a couple years now,” Alvarez said. “He did more matches than anybody but the body, no matter how slow and soft you work — I mean the human body can only take so much and unfortunately, finally he tore his triceps tendon and now he’s gonna be out for nine months.”
“And they had changed Royal Rumble plans, obviously they change plans all the time, well there was an idea for the Royal Rumble in a very prominent position. I know Dave [Meltzer] there were plans for WrestleMania that involved him in a fairly prominent position. Now he’s out of action. So, that sucks for him but hey, sometimes you just need a break.”
Dean Ambrose’s injury might be awful and unfortunate, but at least he’s going to get some rest. Or at least Ambrose should be taking all of the advantages of time off the road to relax a little bit. After all, if anyone deserves it, Dean Ambrose does. It’s just a shame his vacation had to come in the form of a career halting injury.
