If you saw our Roast tweets post from this morning, you already know one of the big stories to come out of Saturday's taping was Steve-O's busted nose. Details have been scarce heretofore, leaving most of us to assume that he slipped in a puddle of tiger blood on the stage. But, as the man himself tells us, the truth is much more Steve-O-y:
I should explain how this happened. I told Charlie Sheen that I was so grateful to be a part of his roast that I was going to attempt to get a black I from Mike Tyson. I dove face-first into Mike Tyson's fist, although it was my forehead that landed on it that first time. It wasn't until the end of the show that I was allowed to give it another proper try. It took two more tries at the end of the show, but I ended up getting it done. As a matter of fact, I broke my nose badly in the process, it was in a whole new spot on my face. As a cameraman filmed blood pouring out of my nose, a guy in the crowd came over and told me he could set my nose straight right there on the spot. I couldn't believe it, it hurt like hell, but he managed to pop the bone right back into place. That's so awesome, I think my nose will actually wind up straighter than it's been since Bam Margera broke it on the set of Jackass 3D. What a great deal, I get to say that I got two black eyes and a broken nose from Mike Tyson, and I'm going to come out of it looking better than I did before it happened. Yeah dude!
Get a better look at the damage after the jump, then be sure to watch the whole bonkers thing go down yourself when The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen premieres next Monday, September 19 at 10/9c.
