Randy “Macho Man” Savage Dies in Car Accident

Randy Savage
Randy "Macho Man" Savage will always be remembered as one of the greatest professional wrestlers ever.

I just heard the news that the Macho Man is gone. Randy Savage, one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time and my personal favorite, dies this morning from injuries he suffered in a car accident. Apparently, Savage suffered a heart attack and lost control of his car this morning in Tampa, Florida. TMZ was the first to report the story and Florida highway patrol told them that Savage was driving his 2009 Jeep Wrangler when he veered across a concrete median, through oncoming traffic, and “collided head-on with a tree.”

It’s a sad end to a career that involved plenty of drama in and out of the ring. Randy Savage was a second generation wrestling star (son of Angelo Poffo and brother of Lanny) and came to the WWF in 1985 along with his manager, Elizabeth. The Macho Man quickly became a star in Vince McMahon’s world and spent the next two decades as one of pro wrestling’s most popular stars. What made Savage so unique was his high flying style of wrestling to go along with his raspy voice and incredible interview skills. Most wrestling fans would put his 1987 Wrestlemania 3 match with Ricky Steamboat as one of the greatest ever. The Macho Man will be sorely missed.

Here’s one of his classic pre-match promos with the great “Mean” Gene Okerlund.
