PWInsider‘s Mike Johnson recently discussed WWE’s announcement that Dean Ambrose was pulled from his scheduled appearing at WrestleMania AXXESS and speculated that there could be more to the story, and that Ambrose may have actually had to undergo another surgery due to complications stemming from the first.
Johnson goes on to explain how he doesn’t understand why Ambrose would not be able to sign autographs for a few hours being that he is four months removed from the initial surgery to repair his triceps. His removal from the appearance could indicate that something went wrong for Ambrose in his recovery process, being that WWE removed him from the AXXESS signings almost directly following his visit to Birmingham to see WWE doctors for a check-up on his recovery.
“WrestleMania is “all hands on deck” and the fact that he’s not doing what they expected him to do at AXXESS.. that to me sounds like something is wrong. I’m almost afraid to say this because I don’t want this to be the case, but I almost expect at some point we’re going to hear that he needed an additional surgery.. or that he’s back to square one with physical therapy because some sort of setback. It doesn’t make sense to me, three or four months after getting the surgery he’s not well enough to sign some autographs for an hour or two.
