Ambrose had been out of action since December 2017 with an ACL injury.  At that time, WWE announced that he would miss nine months of action.

“An MRI has shown suspicion for a high-grade triceps tendon injury, possibly a tear, so he is undergoing surgical exploration and most likely surgical repair of the torn triceps tendon. That surgery will be happening later this evening, and we should have some further updates either later tonight or tomorrow morning as to what the findings were, what the structures that were damaged were, and also a timeline for recovery,” WWE Senior Ringside Physician Dr Chris Amann had discussed the nature of the injury via a statement on the WWE website.

Ambrose, who missed out on the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania 34, now has a new opportunity to be an impact player.
