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.

It says he had a heart attack while driving. Unfortunately it sounds like another case of his past lifestyle catching up with him.

Shame as he seemed to be building some semblance of a normal life after finally escaping the circus. RIP Macho Man.

I'm not a wrestling fan at all, but this was a guy that I (and I'm sure many others) remember. RIP.

Wow, pretty crazy... Been years since I was a wrestling fan, but Macho Man was huge when I was a kid. Sad news indeed.

Damn! I will always remember his match with Ricky Steamboat in Wrestlemania.

That will always be a classic. You will never see another match with that kind of intensity. :(

RIP

:( There are a number of wrestlers I wouldn't be at all surprised to hear died. He wasn't one of them. Despite always being a bit "out there", he seemed to have his life in order. Probably one of those random tragedies that could happen to anyone.

Can a mod join the two ongoing threads about this?

I've been waiting for years for WWE to give him a proper send off, sad that will never happen.

He'll hopefully at least get inducted next year like they did for Mr. Perfect.

they really abused Curt Hennig toward the end of his career making him a jobber. He was in better shape than guys half his age, it was ridiculous.

Ooh no.

RIP Macho Man.

I did like the tribute over at With Leather:


The importance of Savage as a performer can’t be overstated. He was simply one of the greatest and most memorable pro wrestlers in the history of the industry. His career began in 1973 and took him through the two biggest boom periods in pro wrestling popularity, first in the “Rock n’ Wrestling” WWF of the 1980s and then as a part of World Championship Wrestling and the nWo in the 1990s. He was in cartoons, wrestled Peter Parker, held a heavyweight championship wherever he went and participated in the consensus choice for the greatest match of all time against Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat in front of every imaginable wrestling fan at Wrestlemania III.

You can’t just toss a guy like this into a recap paragraph. Savage is a pillar of nearly all of our wrestling memories, be it on Saturday mornings or Monday nights or in pillow form. Slim Jims, neon hats, raspy voices, marriage proposals … they are all indelibly marked by the Macho Man. Heaven saw somebody corpsing and sent for The Man.

Rest in peace, Macho.

So, so sad to hear. It was bad enough when "Elizabeth" left and now The Macho Man. I remember him, Elizabeth and Hulk Hogan teaming up. A..."Ohhhh Yeaaa" for ya Macho Man....thanks for the memories.

I remember actually hating the Mega Powers. And when Macho turned heel again it was gold to me as I couldn't stand Hogan. Sad to see a legend go. RIP Macho Man.

Good stuff. I too was so happy when he turned on Hogan.
