Ronda Rousey suffered a gruesome broken finger injury while filming for FOX’s 9-1-1 TV show, according to TMZ.
Rousey, who plays a member of the Los Angeles Fire Department on the show, was shooting a scene in Mexico last week when she slammed her finger in a door during a scene on the first take. According to TMZ, Rousey never broke character and finished the scene.
Rousey was rushed to the hospital where the bone and tendon had to be reattached with a plate and screws. She told the publication she returned to filming the next day and regained 50% range of motion in three days.
Both her middle and ring fingers were involved, with the middle finger being broken and tendon nearly being severed. She suffered a fracture to the tip of her ring finger.
Below is a graphic photo Rousey posted on Instagram:

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
