    Wrestling legend Hulk Hogan is no stranger to pain, but this is something else!

    The 59-year-old took a trip to the emergency room Sunday in Tampa, Fla., after he severely burned his hand in a radiator accident. And, in a case of serious TMI, the wrestler went on to chronicle his injury and subsequent medical treatment in all its grisly glory—complete with gnarly twitpics.

    "Just had a radiator explode on my hand, OUCH," he tweeted around noon, attaching a twitpic of his scalded and blistered digits.

    And, like watching a trainwreck in slow motion, he proceeded to snap photos as his injury continued to worsen. (A warning: Click no further if you're the queasy type—the photos get pretty gruesome.)

    "Double OUCH," he wrote, followed by—you guessed it—"Triple OUCH" as his blisters appeared to get bigger by the second.

    Thankfully, Hogan—who is in the midst of a massive legal war with Gawker over a sex-tape leak—quickly got himself some medical help.

    "I [am] at the ER now at Tampa General Hospital," he wrote before gleefully snapping away as a doctor attended to his injury.

    "Getting cut on brother," he wrote, noting at one point that he was being "skinned" like a cat.

    But the star later seemed to realize that his grisly blow-by-blow probably wasn't what some of his Twitter followers wanted, as he tweeted: "I apologize for posting my burned hand photos, with all the feedback I now realize I really should take a moment before I make a decision."

    Hogan is the latest star to suffer a gruesome hand injury: Last week, Jesse James chopped off his pinky finger during an accident at his motorcycle shop in Austin, Texas. And, like Hogan, he went on to post graphic photos of his severed digit.

    With all these ghastly twitpics, don't be surprised if fans do some finger wagging at the TMI stars.
