My summary of 2020 (so far): a middle finger, but make it dislocated. Thanks to Dr. Cho for putting it back where it belongs. Here’s to more healing for everyone in the other half. https://t.co/EMyzbvVCLU

Just received my x-rays from Saturday’s debacle. They had to cut my ring off before returning my bones to their full upright and locked position. My fingers are still sore / stiff / swollen but mostly functional. And I still love my job. 💀🤘🏽🛹 https://t.co/fbvWUdszJD

"And I still love my job," the 52-year-old noted.

Hawk has suffered much worse while skating such as a broken pelvis, fractured skull and over 20 concussions, according to CNBC's Lucy Handley.

Hawk has won 10 X Games gold medals, per the event's official website, and made history there over the years:

By 25 years old, Hawk won 73 of the 103 professional contests he had participated in.
