Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins has said to expect Dean Ambrose in the next coming months, after the Lunatic Fringe's surgery earlier this year.
In an interview with a South African radio show, Rollins said his Shield-brother is on the mend and rehabbing.
He said: "He’ll be back and better than ever, you wait. Summertime, maybe late Spring. Somewhere in there, I think."
Ambrose suffered a torn tricep in December last year, which has kept him from competing. The usual recovery time is four to six months.
Dr Jeffrey Dugas, who operated on the former WWE Champion, said at the time:
"Dean tore some of the distal triceps tendons where it attaches to the forearm bone, called the olecranon. 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.”
When asked about the possibility of a Shield reunion, Rollins said that he, Dean and Roman were all on good terms, but would probably still do their own thing.
The three remain on RAW following the recent Superstar Shakeup.
