Stone Cold Steve Austin Shares Grim Picture Of His Dislocated Elbow
Given that his wrestling career spanned over 15 years, it's obvious that Stone Cold Steve Austin has had his fair share of injuries.
The Texas Rattlesnake suffered a legitimate broken neck back in 1997 after the late Owen Hart delivered a botched pile driver to him in a match for the Intercontinental Championship. The injury left Austin temporarily paralysed, leaving his neck to give him troubles for the rest of his career.
Fortunately for the 51-year-old, he retired from in-ring competition in 2003, having his last official match against The Rock at Wrestlemania XIX. Since then, sipping on a couple of Steveweisers has been a lot more relaxing and injuries are certainly less frequent.
Or are they?
The former wrestler shared a picture to his personal Twitter account which showed his elbow ahead of his latest podcast. His elbow? That's an odd way to promote a podcast, what's he on abou - oh God, OH GOD, OH FUCKING GOD.

It's definitely not for the faint-hearted, but, weirdly, it does look like his head.
Speaking on his podcast, he said: "I bent down to pick up a weight and I used my left arm, and my fucking left arm didn't wanna bend. And I'm like 'man, what the fuck'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."
His followers were rightly grossed out by his injury.
