According to Jeff Hardy on Instagram, Hardy will be attending his final physical therapy session today as he finishes rehabbing from surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff and labrum. Hardy also noted his shoulder is no longer “obsolete”, indicating he is ready to return.
PWInsider.com adds Hardy was scheduled to report to the WWE Performance Center following his therapy session to begin training for his WWE TV return and to work off any ring rust, however with Hardy being arrested for DWI last week in North Carolina, it remains to be seen how soon Hardy is brought back to TV once he is fully cleared by WWE.
In other injury news, Dean Ambrose, who has been out of action since December, is scheduled to return to Birmingham, Alabama this week for an evaluation of his rehab progress.
Ambrose has been out of action since suffering a torn triceps muscle in December, and initial estimates following the injury had him missing anywhere from 2 to 3 months of action.
While the initial estimates seemed to indicate Dean Ambrose could return in time for WrestleMania, in a recent interview conducted prior to Raw in Detroit this week, Ambrose’s tag team partner, Seth Rollins, seemed to indicate The Lunatic Fringe will be missing WrestleMania this year.
“Ambrose is the man,” said Rollins. “He’ll be back. It’s not about Wrestlemania this year, it’s about Wrestlemania next year and the year after that. It’s about the long term.”
