    Macho Man Randy Savage Dies In Car Accident



    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.

    I still remember several years ago when he stopped in the booth and visited with Marty and Joe during an afternoon game.

    Is it time to bring back the "too young to die wrestler thread"? 58 is not real young, but most are probably thinking the same thing when a former/current wrestler suffers a heart attack.

    Anyhow... I liked him when I was younger. And as a lot know he was a former minor league baseball player. RIP, Macho Man.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    He was also a former Reds farmhand. He and Ricky Steamboat wrestled one of the best matches I've ever seen at Wrestlemania III.

    Young Caveat spent many a day jumping off his bed and onto a beanbag chair practicing his own "flying elbow drop" in imitation of the Macho Man.

    Another wrestler taken way too young.

    WrestleMania III was in the Pontiac Silverdom in Detroit...unless the same matches after WrestleMania toured around America which the WWF was very prone to do during the 80s.

    Very sad. I haven't watched wrestling since I was a kid, but he was certainly one of my favorites. RIP.
