Former Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey has not been seen in a WWE ring since WrestleMania 35, where she lost in the “Winner Takes All” main event that also featured Charlotte Flair.
Since then, the UFC Hall of Famer has reportedly been focusing on starting a family. More recently, Rousey even secured a role in FOX’s 9-1-1 drama.
In a recent Instagram post, Rousey has revealed that she suffered a rather gruesome injury while filming for the aforementioned TV series.

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
It has been revealed that Rousey nearly lost her finger during filming for the drama. Ronda was supposed to slam a door during the scene, but ended up going slightly overboard.
This comes after it was reported that WWE and FOX will be looking to bring Rousey in for Smackdown Live’s debut on the network in October. However, it has not been officially confirmed if Ronda will be appearing.
