WWE Breaking News: Former WWE Superstar Randy Savage Dies in Car Accident

Joe Burgett Senior Writer IIIMay 20, 2011

In one of the most somber reports I have ever done, I must now tell you all "Macho Man" Randy Savage has died.

It has been reported that Savage suffered a heart attack and then lost control of his vehicle, causing him to wreck.

It has yet to be reported what caused the heart attack, but I'm sure more will be found out down the line.

Regardless, it really sucks to lose such a legendary and beloved Pro-Wrestler.

The wrestling world is sending out their thoughts and opinions on this via twitter and Facebook. You can look at them all there.

I invite everyone to share their opinions about the Macho Man here in the comments.

Even though we lost such a beloved wrestler, we should celebrate his life instead of being upset or mad at the world. Savage gave us great memories, some of which we'll go to the grave never forgetting.

He was one of those special Pro-Wrestlers that just had "it" and you saw it from the moment he came out, to the moment he left.

Savage, while controversial to some, still entertained us as good if not better than anyone in any company he worked in. He seemed to never be out-performed by any other, which brought him respect among his peers and fans alike.

Savage just celebrated his one-year anniversary with his wife Lynn. My prayers go out to her and the entire Savage family

Randy Savage was 58 years old.




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.
