TMZ is reporting that former RAW Women’s Champion and UFC Hall of Famer Ronda Rousey sustained a bad hand injury while filming on the set of “9-1-1.”
The incident happened last week. Rousey was filming a scene in Mexico and was to slam a door, but she accidentally slammed the door on her hand, breaking her middle finger and the tip of her ring finger. Rousey finished filming the scene before admitting she had injured herself.
The injury to the middle finger was very significant — she broke the bone and nearly severed the tendon, horribly disfiguring the finger. Rousey was taken to a hospital in San Diego, where they repaired her finger with a bolt and screws. Rousey returned to the set the next day to finish filming.
Rousey addressed the incident on her Instagram. Rousey reports that she had 50% range of motion back within three days and mentions that the shot where she breaks her finger will be kept in the episode, which will air this fall.

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
