Ronda Rousey Nearly Loses A Finger In Freak Accident While Filming TV Show

Former Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey Nearly severed a finger clean through whilst on the set of Fox TV drama 9-1-1.

Rousey has stepped away from WWE since losing the title to Becky Lynch at WrestleMania in May, having also suffered a broken hand during the PPV, and there's no official word on when she might return. She was also the unwilling recipient of yet another injury to a hand last week.

The UFC Hall of Famer was part of 9-1-1's filming for the show's third season when a boat door fell on her hand. Despite the painful ordeal, she never even winced or broke character and finished her scene.

It wasn't until the director yelled "cut" that she finally acknowledged the injury, saying "Ow, you're not gonna like this."

TMZ broke the news on Tuesday and Rousey has since confirmed as much via Instagram.

Her post is shown below, but we must warn that it's pretty graphic and not for the faint of heart. Do proceed with caution.

The star, who is still under contract with WWE, thought that she only jammed her fingers at first. "I'm used to live audiences and never showing pain unless I'm supposed to," she said.

Upon realizing the extent of the damage to her appendage, however, she was rushed to a hospital and was diagnosed with a broken finger. Her middle finger was broken and the tendon was nearly severed, while the tip of her ring finger was also fractured.

The bone and tendon were reattached to her finger with a plate and screws and Ronda was able to return to filming the following day. She says she had a 50 percent range of motion back by the third day.

"So the word is out I nearly lost my finger shooting @911onfox," she posted 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."

Well, Ronda's one tough cookie. They don't call her The baddest woman on the planet for nothing! Let's hope she undergoes a full recovery, though.
