Dean Ambrose should be back in action and on television within the next month, shortly after SummerSlam.
According to PWInsider.com, the former WWE Champion tore his triceps in early December last year, and was ruled out of action for nine months. Now, it's only a matter of weeks until he finally returns to the ring.
Ambrose's injury completely changed the landscape of Monday Night Raw. The Shield recruited Jason Jordan to replace Ambrose, but the former required neck surgery in February and has yet to return.
After that, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns went their own ways and have yet to reunite The Shield. Rollins enjoyed a run as the Intercontinental Champion, while Reigns will get his third crack at Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship at SummerSlam. With Ambrose on the verge of returning, it remains to be seen what will happen with The Shield - should a reunion be in store.
There were rumors that Ambrose was in line for a heel turn after WrestleMania 34, but that obviously never came to be. With Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre receiving big pushes on the Raw roster, it's difficult to envision how WWE will fit 'The Lunatic'. The idea of Ambrose even joining SmackDown Live could also be a possibility.
Ambrose's return to the ring comes at a very opportune time, as the aftermath of SummerSlam promises to bring a great series of new storylines and feuds. With Ambrose about to return, the possibilities of where they can fit him are endless, and it's going to be enticing to see how they bring him back.
WWE has seen a large portion of its top superstars suffer long-term injuries over the past year, but Jordan and Ambrose are nearing full health and are both close to returning. Finally, the WWE Universe will see a healthy roster.
