damn. Plenty of good memories of him from my childhood. Too bad he had to go like this.

Re: Macho Man Randy Savage dies in car accident

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.

Re: Macho Man Randy Savage dies in car accident

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.

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

RIP

Re: Macho Man Randy Savage dies in car accident

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.
