Former WWE star Gangrel walked away from a terrifying motorcycle accident this week -- but suffered a gruesome elbow injury as a result ... and TMZ has the disgusting photo. 

Gangrel (real name David Heath) tells TMZ he was riding his motorcycle in Burbank when he turned a corner was struck by an oncoming car. Heath says he absorbed more of the impact than his actual bike.

He was eventually rushed to the hospital where doctors diagnosed him with a fractured elbow. The bike will survive too, but it needs about $4,000 in repairs.

Click the photo above to see Gangrel's elbow without that massive cast ... just remember, you can't unsee it.

Ever since Charlie Sheen used the word gnarly, TMZ staff has been overusing it.

I think it is important to announce that MotoGP rider Marco Simoncelli (ITA) died in an accident on Lap 2 in Malaysia on 10/23/11. This coming just one week after the tragic death of IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon.
