Macho Man Randy Savage Dead At 58
Written by Richard Gray on May 20, 2011 - 12:43:46 PM

TMZ is reporting that Macho Man Randy Savage has died. He was 58-years-old.

Citing Randy's brother Lanny Poffo as a source, TMZ reports Savage was behind the wheel of his 2009 Jeep Wrangler at 9:25 AM this morning in Tampa, Florida when he suffered and heart attack and lost control of the vehicle. Savage reportedly veered across the concrete median, through oncoming traffic and collided "head-on" with a tree. Savage was traveling with his wife Lynn but she survived, suffering only "minor injuries."

Savage was transported to Largo Medical Center after the accident, where he was pronounced dead. Lynn was transferred to a different local hospital where she was treated.

While an investigation of the accident is underway, police say alcohol was not a factor. Both were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the accident.

We are shocked and saddened to hear of the news of the passing of Randy Savage and offer our heartfelt condolences to his friends and family.

Sadly in wrestling it's not that young.

Test Martin,Umaga,Benoi or Eddie Guerrero all died younger than the Macho Man.

Early indications are that he had a heart attack while driving his Jeep. Savage was 58.

Savage's heart may certainly have been weakened from past PED use, but he has been out of wrestling for quite a few years now so it is unlikely he was still taking them.

Sorry to hear of his passing. I read about it earlier & called my son. MM was one of his favorites. We watched all them WWF shows in the 1980's-1990's, when it was really good & funny to boot. Still watched it from time to time, but it's so surprising to hear yet another great wrestler from that generation has died....so sad.

I remember watching channel 11 in the 1960's when Bruno Sammartino, Stan Hansen, Killer Kowalski, The Batman", George Steel, Haystacks, etc, etc, etc. were on. You actually felt that you KNEW these guys from seeing them for a few hours every week. Again, sad to see how many have died......

The best was Savage vs. Ricky Steamboat. That was the sh**.

It had to be because of roids. Savage was one of those guys that got ridiculously bigger in a short span with roids.

But the side effects of ped use may get felt many years down the line in a persons life.
