Ronda Rousey comments on nearly losing finger while filming FOX’s ‘9-1-1’ TV show

Former WWE Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey has commented on nearly losing her finger while on the set of FOX’s ‘9-1-1.’

The injury happened when she slammed a door on her finger while filming last week in Mexico. Rousey used her instincts from her time in WWE as she never broke character but rather continued on with the scene.

The broken middle finger was repaired with “bolt and screws” according to TMZ sources.

Rousey commented on her official Instagram account on the injury. She wrote the following:

“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.”
