WWE Hall of Famer Jim Duggan was taken to the intensive care unit at a South Carolina hospital with unknown health issues. 

Duggan's daughter Celia posted a picture on Instagram of the family in the hospital Thursday, which Duggan reposted alongside a message that he is expected to be released on Saturday. 

"Happy Thanksgiving from the Duggan family to yours," she wrote. "Dad is in ICU but is in good spirits and we are all doing good- we have a lot to be thankful for this year."

Duggan, 64, is still active in wrestling on the independent circuit. He competed for Impact Pro Wrestling in June, winning the Armageddon Expo Cup by defeating Mr. Burns. 

Hacksaw is best known for his time in WWE. The New York native had three different stints with the promotion. His most prominent run came from 1987-93, highlighted by winning the 1988 Royal Rumble. 

WWE inducted Duggan into the Hall of Fame in 2011, leading to him making sporadic television appearances for the company over the following year. His last match in WWE came in March 2013, when he defeated Jack Swagger by disqualification.
