Ronda Rousey Is On The Mend After Nearly Losing Her Finger Following ‘9-1-1’ On Set Stunt

WARNING – This article contains graphic images.

Ronda Rousey is back on set after filming a dangerous stunt for “9-1-1” that nearly cost her one of her fingers.

As reported by TMZ, the WWE star, 32, was shooting the hit Global TV series when she caught her middle finger in a door as she slammed it. According to a source she didn’t even break character: “She was a little over-exuberant and slammed the door on her finger.”

In a NSFW photo obtained by the outlet, her finger is obviously broken and her tendon was nearly severed – she also fractured the tip of her ring finger.

“So the word is out I nearly lost my finger shooting ‘9-1-1’,” she captioned a graphic photo of her severed finger. “Freak accident, first take of the day a boat door fell on my hand, I thought I just jammed my fingers so I finished the take before looking (I know it sounds crazy, but I’m used to live audiences and never showing pain unless I’m supposed to). After a break in the action I told our director the situation and was rushed via ambulance to the hospital where they promptly reattached my bone and tendon with a plate and screws.”

She added, “I returned to filming the next day and finished my scenes before returning home to recover. Modern medicine amazes me, I already had 50 per cent range of motion back in three days. There’s so much more than I can write here, stayed tuned via @rondarouseydotcom for the full story. And of course tune in to see how well I can act like my finger didn’t just fall off in this upcoming season of ’9-1-1’.”
