Macho Man Randy Savage Dies In Car Accident

40 minutes ago by TMZ Staff

Macho Man Randy Savage -- one of the greatest wrestlers of all-time -- died today in a car accident in Tampa, Florida ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ spoke with Randy's brother, Lanny Poffo, who tells us the wrestling legend suffered a heart attack while he was behind the wheel around 9:25 AM ... and lost control of his vehicle.

Earlier this month, Savage celebrated his 1-year anniversary with his new wife Lynn.

Savage was 58.

Macho Man began wrestling in the WWF in 1985 and became a superstar with his trademark catchphrase "Ooooooh Yeaahhhhh."

UPDATE: Florida Highway Patrol tells TMZ ... Savage was driving his 2009 Jeep Wrangler when he veered across a concrete median ... through oncoming traffic ... and "collided head-on with a tree."

Savage was transported to Largo Medical center, where he died from his injuries.

Savage's wife was a passenger in the vehicle during the collision -- but survived with "minor injuries." She was transported to a different local hospital where she was treated.

According to officials, Randy and Lynn were both wearing their seatbelts at the time of the accident.

Cops say alcohol was NOT a factor.

An investigation into the accident is underway.

Too bad, he was a cool guy. Looks like all those years of steriod abuse got him. Pretty crazy that all these steroid guys have heartattacks at a young age. I'm glad I never did that s***. RIP Macho Man

Yep, one of the drawbacks of testosterone is it is not very good for the heart, which is why men are much more effected by heart disease than women just naturally. Throw in steroid usage and abuse over a number of years (if not decades), and your risk shoots through the roof.
