Sly Hurt During “Expendables” Filming

On January 6, 2010, posted an item with the following headline: “Sylvester Stallone Breaks His Neck Shotting Fight Scene in Veteran Action Heroes’ Movie”.  The report comes from an interview that Sly gave to FHM magazine.  In the interview Sly talked about how tough the shoot on “The Expendables” was, partly because of all the testosterone on the set.  Of course with Sly, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li and Randy Couture what else would you expect?  The DailyMail goes on to quote what Sly told FHM:

“Man, it was seven guys, kicking each other’s ass, one guy tougher than the next. No joke, our stunt guys were begging for mercy.

‘Actually, my fight with Stone Cold Steve Austin was so vicious that I ended up getting a hairline fracture in my neck. I’m not joking.

‘I haven’t told anyone this, but I had to have a very serious operation afterwards. I now have a metal plate in my neck.’

As you can imagine the Stallone injury story was picked up and ran all over the net.  Here are just a few of the places:
