WWE Hall of Famer Ricky Steamboat says he’s doing well after going under the knife on Monday for hip replacement surgery.

Steamboat tweeted saying he was able to get up and walk around without pain just four hours after surgery.  He also thanked fans for their love and prayers.

The hip issue wasn’t enough to keep “The Dragon” off the road prior to surgery though, as he appeared Sunday in Tennessee at a comic con event.

Ricky was also in the ring as recently as March participating in a physical angle for Absolute Intense Wrestling in Ohio.
