    Default Macho Man Randy Savage Dies In Car Accident

    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.

    KEEP REFRESHING FOR NEW DETAILS.

    That sucks. I got to meet him once in High School. He was friends with my (Golden Glove champ) Shakespeare teacher, who also died in a car accident in Europe last year.

    One of the Greatest Wrestlers of all Time!

    Sad news.

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    One of my favorites. Will never forget when he and Elizabeth showed up on the scene. One of the key guys that took the WWF to rock star levels. Bummer.

    DAMN, Can't believe it. How many PRO Wrestler have died in the last few years at early ages? Around 100? The numbers are staggering.

    +++++

    Randy Savage was a favorite as a kid. Loved his fueds with Jake the Snake and Ricky Steamboat. Stuff of Legend.

    Snap into a slim jim for the MACHO MAN!

    Not a wrestling fan but I used to watch it in the early 80s when I was a kid. Remember him well. Bummer. Everyone should snap into a Slim Jim today.

    Brings back some of my best childhood memories, piling in Monday nights with a couple of buddies to watch WWF RAW and later on WCW Nitro. Always loved the Macho Man. I'll be snapping into a slim jim later on after work.

    Oh Yeahhhhhhh! Can you dig it!
    I have missed him the last number of years and too bad he fell into that wasteland that became of WCW and thankfully he didn't go the Hulk Hogan/Ric Flair route and stay in wayyy too long.

    R.I.P. Macho Man, now you can give Elizabeth a nice big hug once again.

    Damn, RIP MM. I also was into watching that stuff as a kid. Not only
    was it fun aggressive action it was comedy too. MM was great. Didn't he appear
    in the first spiderman movie too? Sad news.
