Ronda Rousey says she nearly lost her finger after a freak accident during filming for American television show 9-1-1.
The WWE superstar showed off the gruesome injury, which she suffered after a boat door fell on her hand, on her Instagram page.
Rousey was taken to hospital, where she required screws and a plate to reattach her bone and tendon. She returned to filming the following day.
“So the word is out I nearly lost my finger shooting @911onfox,” Rousey wrote on Instagram.
“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.
“I returned to filming the next day and finished my scenes before returning home to recover.
Modern medicine amazes me, I already had 50% range of motion back in 3 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 @911onfox.”
The 32-year-old embarked on a career in professional wrestling when she signed a contract with WWE in 2018, going on to win the RAW Women’s Championship at SummerSlam.
She had previously enjoyed a glittering MMA career, becoming the first ever female UFC champion and the first female inductee into the UFC Hall of Fame.
