Wrestling organizations like the WWE may be purely entertainment, but the injuries can be real. Typically when we see a wrestler wincing in pain we assume it’s all part of the act, but that was hardly the case for Sean “X-Pac” Waltman during a match over the weekend.
According to his girlfriend Alicia Nicole Webb, aka Ryan Shamrock, Waltman suffered a torn anus while attempting his signature move the “Bronco Buster.” Wrestling news website WrestleChat.net said that Waltman’s opponent moved out of the way when he was about to attempt the move, causing him to fly into the corner post crotch-first. Webb posted the photo you see above on Twitter with the following message.
“We don’t know if there is a medical term for it…but he did a bronco buster last night that literally ripped his ass apart!” she wrote. “Lost a lot of blood! Had surgery this morning and is on the road to recovery! Believe it or not, this has happened to him once before!”
Good lord. How many butthole injuries can one man take before he decides to call it quits? You have to admire the commitment. As we learned from an MMA fighter several months back, gruesome injuries like this can happen inside the ring or at home. Fortunately, it appears Waltman is recovering well and in good spirits.
Sean has been released! :-) Taking him home for some TLC. [pic]: 4sq.com/16devTo

Here’s hoping he has a speedy recovery and can avoid injuring his anus for the rest of his career.Google+
