Ronda Rousey's finger nearly severed by accident on '9-1-1' set
Former UFC bantamweight and WWE champion Ronda Rouseysuffered a gruesome injury while filming a role on FOX’s ‘9-1-1’.
Let us repeat that: The injury is gruesome. Take a look below if you must.
Rousey, who plays a chief with the Los Angeles Fire Department, was in Mexico filming an action scene and said she was on her first take when the accident occurred.
“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 wrote on her official Instagram page.
Amazingly, the injury did not keep Rousey from work. She wrote that she returned to the set the next day and finished her scene.
“Modern medicine amazes me, I already had 50 (percent) range of motion back in 3 days,” she wrote.
As Rousey mentioned, she was pretty well prepared to tough her way through the injury. She’s taken plenty of big hits – real and staged – in the WWE and UFC.
