The Daily Mail in the UK is reporting that during filming of a fight scene with Steve Austin for their new film The Expendables, the action was so realistic that it left Stallone with a hairline fracture in his neck. He needed to have emergency surgery and a metal plate was inserted in his neck following the scene.

Stallone was quoted as saying, "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."

The Wrestler's Mickey Rourke also appears in the movie.
