Former WWE star "Stone Cold" Steve Austin shared a photo of an extremely bizzarre injury on Tuesday morning, and the image is pretty excruciating to look at.
He tweeted the snap with the caption, "The elbow for today's podcast."
During his podcast Steve Austin Show Unleashed, Stone Cold gave the story on the injury. He recalled: "I woke up Tuesday morning, started to work out, and had this big goose egg on my left elbow. It was gigantic...I didn't know what the f*** was wrong with my left elbow but it was unsightly."
Austin then explained that he suffers from olecranon bursitis, and that the injury is fairly common amongst pro wrestlers.
The 51-year-old former WWE champ continued: "I bent down to pick up a weight and I used my left arm, and my [expletive] left arm didn't wanna bend. And I'm like 'man, what the [expletive]'s wrong with my arm?' So I grabbed my left arm with my right hand, and it's like someone had buried a golf ball in my elbow.
You know, back in the day, when I was in the game of pro wrestling, when I was first starting out - or hell, it could be any time - try and make a flat-back landing and sometimes your elbows just bang into that mat and you bust that bursa sac. Virtually all the boys who ever come up in the business have that tennis ball elbow as you go through the paces, because it kinda comes with the territory."0comments
What would you do if you woke up in the morning and your elbow looked like there was a golf ball sticking out of it like this?
