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

Remarkably, Rousey said she finished her scene - which was the first take - before realizing the seriousness of her injury.

"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," she wrote.

Rousey added she returned the next day to finish shooting after having her finger reattached.

She's currently on hiatus from the WWE to start a family with husband and former UFC heavyweight fighter Travis Browne.
