Wrestling fans out there ........

''Macho Man" Randy Savage, a pro wrestler who became a fan
favorite thanks to his outlandish outfits and trademark catchphrase,
died Friday in a car wreck, as first reported by TMZ.

The 58-year-old Savage -- whose legal name was Randy Mario Poffo,
reportedly suffered a heart attack while driving his 2009 Jeep Wrangler
in Tampa, Fla., and careened across lanes of oncoming traffic before
colliding head-on with a tree. He died later at a local hospital.

Savage's wife Lynn, who was riding in the passenger seat, escaped with
only minor injuries. Both passengers were wearing seatbelts and the
police do not believe alcohol was a factor.

The World Wrestling Federation favorite from Ohio burst onto the scene
in 1985 and quickly drew attention with his flamboyant outfits and
"ooh yeah!" catch-phrase. His marriage to Elizabeth Hulette, Ms. Elizabeth
to fans, was one of the first high-profile wrestler/valet relationships.
They divorced in 1992. Savage remarried last year.

He won 2 WWF championships in his career. His match against
Ricky Steamboat in 1987's Wrestlemania III is considered one of
the best WWF bouts ever. Savage won the title late that year,
setting the stage for memorable battles with Hulk Hogan, who
would eventually dethrone him as champion.

World Wrestling Entertainment released an official
statement on Friday afternoon."WWE is saddened to
learn of the passing of one of the greatest Superstars
of his time, Randy Poffo, aka Randy "Macho Man" Savage.

One of Macho Man's biggest rivals was Hulk Hogan.
Hogan said he and Savage had just started talking
again after 10 years.

"He had so much life in his eyes & in his spirit, I just
pray that he's happy and in a better place and we miss
him," Hogan wrote.

Savage also appeared in memorable ads for Slim Jim
and played a wrestler in the 2002 hit film "Spider-Man."


I'm a wrestlin' fan myself, sad to hear this. I grew up watchin'
Macho, he was a favorite. Got to meet him and get his autograph
back in the early 90's, sure was awesome. He was kind of a jerk
that day, but still love the guy.

Rest peacefully, I'll miss ya man. :Toast:

Macho Man didn't die from car crash according to Autopsy

An autopsy revealed that wrestling great Randy
"Macho Man" Savage died from heart disease and
not from any injury sustained in his May 20 car
crash.

The St. Petersburg Medical Examiner's Office found
that the 58 yr old had an enlarged heart with hardened
coronary arteries. He became unresponsive while driving
his Jeep Wrangler on a Florida highway in May and crashed
into a tree. While the auto accident left minor cuts and
bruises, the heart problems were the official cause of
death of the wrestler.

At the time of his death, it was unknown whether the
former wrestling star had died because of the heart
issue or because the heart issue caused him to crash.
The coroner said Savage was found with therapeutic
levels of a number of prescribed drugs in his system
and that alcohol wasn't a factor. There was no evidence
he was taking any heart medication, leading to the
assumption that Savage may not have known about
his condition.
