WWE Hall of Famer Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat was under the knife yesterday for a total hip replacement. He took to his new Twitter account to ask fans for their thoughts and prayers ahead of the surgery. That surgery was a success and Steamboat says he was able to walk down the hall 4 hours after surgery with no pain at all. He thanked everyone for the well-wishes and prayers.
Here are the tweets:

And let’s just admire for a moment how great of shape Steamboat looks to be in for a 65-year-old man who beat his body up his whole life. He looks healthy and happy and that’s how it should be for one of the best babyfaces in the history of the business.
WWE posted a jocular statement about Braun Strowman pushing Kevin Owens off the stage in a Porta-Potty at the conclusion of last night’s Monday Night Raw:
