Randy “Macho Man” Savage dies

Former wrestler killed in a car accident while suffering a heart attack


Legendary professional wrestler Randy “Macho Man” Savage has died, TMZ.com reports. Savage was driving his 2009 Jeep Wrangler along a Florida highway at around 9:25 a.m. on Friday morning when he suffered a heart attack and lost control of the vehicle, which swerved across a concrete median and “collided head-on with a tree.” He was transported to Largo Medical Center, where he died from his injuries. Savage’s wife, Lynn, was in the vehicle with him, but suffered “minor injuries” and was treated at a different hospital. Savage, 58, began his career with the WWF in 1985, and was known for his popular catchphrase, “Ooooooh Yeaaaahhhh!”
