It can't be too terrible if they focused on working over the arm backstage. That backstage attack, to me just signified that the injury was kayfabe.

Quote  Dean Ambrose undergoes successful surgery

Dean Ambrose underwent successful surgery Tuesday night to repair a high-grade triceps tendon injury, WWE.com can confirm.

The procedure was performed by Dr. Jeffrey Dugas in Birmingham, Ala., and took around 40 minutes.

“He tore some of the distal triceps tendon where it attaches to the forearm bone, called the olecranon,” Dr. Dugas told WWE.com. “He basically tore about 50 percent of the triceps tendon away from the bone. So yesterday we repaired that back down to the bone where it tore off of. The surgery was very straightforward; we removed all of the extra bursal tissue — all of that extra swollen stuff around his elbow.”

Dugas added that Ambrose has begun physical therapy, starting with light range-of-motion exercises, and is expecting to leave Birmingham later today.

It is unknown at this time how long Ambrose will be out of action.

If he has had that level of surgery, youd expect him to be out until the RR at the very very least- for me this is a 2 -3 month job which is a shame because every time they seem to be getting somewhere with a Shield storyline, one of them gets ill or injured

WWE is reporting 4 months, so with their added padding to the recovery time, I expect him to make his return at WrestleMania.

I would agree with the Wrestlemania assessment. This also means that we're very likely to see Ambrose and Rollins in a tag match at mania to cover for Ambrose's limitations.

No heel turn then, as everyone seemed to expect. 

I'm still hoping to see a Randy/Rollins trade after mania. I've been waiting over a year now and it needs to happen.

Apparently plans are in place likely after Wrestlemania for one or both of Ambrose and Rollins to turn heel so they can feud with Roman Reigns.

I would like to see a Ambrose heel turn, its the role hes best and most comfortable in as it plays directly to his character strengths, he hasn't worked as a heel on the main roster for any real length of time yet so it will freshen his character and present plenty of new scenarios, I'd like to see it. Might improve his ring style too as i'm not a huge fan of his scrappy babyface style.

Rollins people will argue is better as a face as it suits his flashy ring style better, however I liked him as a heel and think as a cocky arrogant kind of morph of a heel RVD and a heel Shawn Michaels type character he is very effective. He can play more into his Monday Night Rollins gimmick this way too and I don't see why his ring style needs to be watered down just because hes a heel.

Bleh... turn all 3 or none I say. Rollins isn't stale, Ambrose has been away for months so just having him back will be enough, and Reigns... well that's complicated isn't it?

WWE would really get on my bad side (again) if they didn't pull the trigger on Balor Club vs The Shield. 

To be fair, WWE hasn't been doing the best at building up the Balor Club as a dominant faction like The Shield was, and that's a shame, but there's a great feud just sitting there, and it would be such a loss to let it go to waste.

I do admit it makes perfect sense to turn one of Reign's Shield brethren IF Reigns comes out of WrestleMania as the Universal Champion. Rollins vs Reigns is one of those feuds that "writes itself", just like Bret Hart against Owen Hart after Bret came out of WrestleMania X as Champ in 1994. It writes itself.  

As for whether I'd prefer Ambrose or Rollins as a good guy or a bad guy; both of them seem like people who could work well either way. I agree that it would be a good experiment to see Ambrose as a bad guy as he has spent very little time as one, largely due to the fact he was the most popular member of the faction after they initially split in 2014. As for Rollins, he is okay as a face; but his best in my eyes was his 2015 run as Undisputed World Champion as a bad guy when he was allied with Hunter Hearst Helmsley.

I wouldn't mind seeing this feud (is that what you were thinking of when you made the "Faction Warfare" thread a while back?) 

I do agree that they haven't built the Balor Club in the same way they did the Shield. I suspect this is because the Shield were "home grown" while the Bullet Club largely made names for themselves elsewhere. That being said, to be honest Balor himself is the only one of the Club I really view on an elite level; whereas in the Shield all three of them are.

Quote Drew McIntyre & Dolph Ziggler vs. Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins: Rollins and Ambrose start off hot in this one and they clear the ring. Ambrose and Ziggler go at it on the mat now until Rollins tags in and launches Ziggler outside. Rollins knocks Drew outside too and hits a suicide dive on them. Back in the ring, Rollins goes up top, but Drew knocks him down to the mat. Ziggler works over Rollins on the mat now and applies a sleeper. Drew comes in and trades kicks with Rollins, and both men are down. Ziggler runs in but Rollins throws him out. Rollins superkicks Drew and Drew falls outside. Ambrose goes outside but Drew drops him. Back in the ring, Drew misses a shot off the top on Ambrose, and Ambrose answers with a neckbreaker. Rollins tags in and comes flying in off the top with a frogsplash on Drew, and Ambrose hits a suicide dive on Ziggler to the outside. Rollins and McIntyre fight up in the turnbuckle, and McIntyre suplexes Rollins off the top. Ambrose comes in and kicks Drew in the corner, then rolls outside. Ziggler tags in and Rollins kicks him down. Rollins looks for the curb stomp but Ziggler dodges it. They grapple on the mat until Rollins gets Ziggler in the powerbomb position, but Drew interrupts it. Drew drops Rollins and then kicks Ambrose. Rollins throws Drew to the outside, then Ziggler runs up behind Rollins and his the Zig Zag for a two count. Braun Strowman's music hits and he comes down the ramp, which distracts everyone. Rollins accidentally knocks the ref down in the commotion, and then Braun hits the ring and goes after Drew. Braun clotheslines Drew to the outside and then follows him down to the floor. Braun brawls with Drew into the fans and pummels on him. Braun chases Drew out of the arena area and back into the loading dock. Ziggler grabs his title belt and goes to hit Rollins with it, but Ambrose takes the belt form him. Rollins superkicks Dolph and then hits the curb stomp on him. Ambrose throws the ref back in the ring and tells him to count, and the ref counts to three. Rollins and Ambrose win and are the new Tag Team Champions.

Winners & new RAW Tag Tem Champions: Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose

- Seth and Dean hug after the match and celebrate with their Tag Title belts. Out of nowhere, Dean kicks Rollins in the midsection and hits the Dirty Deeds on him. As Rollins comes to, Ambrose gets on him and starts pummeling on him and yelling at him. Ambrose throws Dean out of the ring and beats him down over by the timekeeper's area. Ambrose pulls back the protective padding on the concrete floor by the ring, and then DDTs Rollins on to the concrete. Ambrose hops the guard rail exits through the crowd as Rollins is left laying by the ring.

Bad taste to do a turn angle on a night of such a horrible real life situation becoming public knowledge?
 
Perfect time to turn Dean whilst real life emotions are around to take full advantage with?
 
I've seen arguements for both sides but I like the turn. Roman comes from one of the biggest wrestling families ever, so knows more than anyone that the show must go on. Plus if I was Roman I would be absolutely fine with two of my best mates using my horrible situation to turn in to a positive for them both.

Honestly I would've waited a week before doing the turn I also don't understand them putting the tag titles on Dean and Seth when Dean just turned on Seth.

I think the move was brilliant. Everyone's been anticipating this heel turn ever since summerslam, and now that they've done it everyone's completely shocked it happened. That's exactly the right move. The fact that they're also tag team champions means there's likely a new, different, and hopefully really good story coming. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next.
