Ronda Rousey Tells All About Nearly Losing Her Finger In Freak Accident

Ronda Rousey isn’t wrestling in the ring anymore, but she is still tearing it up on the small screen, literally. Rousey recently injured herself while filming a recurring role on 9-1-1 and now she’s talking all about it.

The Baddest Woman On The Planet nearly severed her finger when slamming a door during an emotional action scene. She was rather humorous about this accidental trip to the ER, but that finger injury still had to have hurt a lot.

So the word is out I nearly lost my finger shooting @911onfox. 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

Her finger will need to do a lot of healing after an accident like that. Hopefully, they will be able to work around her injured digits when filming the rest of her role as a firefighter.

As of right now any plans to return to the ring, if there were any, will certainly need to wait for a bit as well. You can check out the picture below, but we must warn you in advance that it’s pretty awful.
