WWE's workhorse, Dean Ambrose tore his bicep muscle and had to have surgery. Unfortunately, there's no telling exactly when the lunatic fringe will return to in-ring action. The injury occurred on December 25 during the Monday Night Raw Christmas special where Dean and his buddy, Seth, attempted to retain the WWE Raw Tag-Team Championship, stolen from them by Cesaro and Sheamus aka The Bar. They took complete advantage of RAW being undersized by Smackdown during the Survivor Series PPV build up. While the RAW Superstars were in full readiness for the attack - it never commenced, and since everyone was so on edge, that's when Cesaro and Sheamus took advantage of Seth to become Tag Team Champions again.

Dean and Seth were distraught.

How the injury occurred:

Monday, December 25 Dean Ambrose teamed up with his brethren, Seth Rollins, and an unlikely ally, Jason Jordan to take on The Bar, Cesaro and Sheamus and samoa joe. The injury to Dean's arm may be more severe than we thought. Kayfabe isn't dead. During Rollin's suicide dive, it was clear Ambrose messed his arm up by the way the officials had paramedics rush over. Having to be escorted backstage by WWE Officials, things got worse when a sneak attack by Cesaro, Sheamus, and Samoa Joe hit Seth and Dean hard.

One of the WWE crates was flipped over onto the already-injured Ambrose's arm.

Possible heel turn?

According to WWE doctors, Dean could be out of action for nine months [VIDEO], which leaves fans wondering why in the hell did they make Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan the new tag-team champions and why now? Could this be the start of a brand new, unopened packaged Ambrose heel? Considering his best friend brethern semi-replaced him and had to ignite some fire within him.

But again, The Shield could once again be imploding. This time it won't be a Seth betrayal. I mean, wouldn't you be pretty upset?

How Serious is the injury?

Once again, according to WWE, Ambrose is expected to be out of action for nine months, although, this is Dean Ambrose and nine months ain't going to fly with the lunatic fringe. Maybe he'll make a WrestleMania comeback as a heel not face. But for now, all we know is what the doctor informed us. “He tore some of the distal triceps tendons where it attaches to the forearm bone, called the olecranon,” Dr. Dugas told WWE.com.

All we can do now is hope for the best, hope for his health, and get hyped to see the man make a better and more impactful return than John Cena.
