Stallone fractured neck during Expendables fight
Sylvester Stallone was forced to undergo major surgery after an epic fight scene for new action blockbuster, "The Expendables" went wrong and he fractured his neck in a freak accident.
Stallone, 63, who performed his own stunt work on the set of the movie, was left reeling in pain after one fight with wrestling star Stone Cold Steve Austin turned so "vicious" he had to undergo corrective surgery, and now has a plate in his neck.
He tells Britain's FHM magazine, "It was seven guys, kicking each other's a**, one guy tougher than the next. No joke, our stunt guys were begging for mercy.
"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.
